    it didnt require an update for me, but there is something that concerns me. its asks you if you will allows it to collect data on games you have played to give you game reccomendations. If you allow this they will be able to tell what vc games that you are playing that you may not of bought and probably even your use of the homebrew channel

    just found out if you dont allow them to do this you cannot use the DS download service part of the nintendo channel

    Hmm.... The disclaimer that you have to accept in order to use the DS Download Service stresses over and over that they can't identify you or your console by the data collected, but... They also mention collecting data about your photos, sensor bar usage (what...?), and internet usage. The only thing this channel seems to give in return are customized commercials for games. I don't think DS Downloads are worth Nintendo having logs about somebody playing a blank channel multiple times a day (Dr. Mario Virus Buster, lol).

    They could possibly be using this to check out how much piracy is going on, unless I'm mistaken and Japan has had this for months.

    Is the DS Download Service that interesting? Wasn't it meant for downloading demo's for your DS?

    Installed it.. really usefull thing, has DS demos, information about games being released and game trailers and videos about Nintendo stuff.. there was an interview with Miyamoto about Wiifit today when I turned it on.

    And the videos loaded at a good speed to me, same as watching something from Youtube on my PC. A lot faster than the Wii Shop channel [​IMG]

    VDO steaming is way too slow for me. Plus, it can't be saved. If u want to watch it again, u've to steam it over again. That's terrible.

    Doesn't seem worth it for me. Having a DS flash card, I really don't need demos. As far as trailers and videos... there are only a million gaming websites around the Internet.

    Also just read this on Nintendo's website about the Nintendo Channel...

    "Please note that a compatible internet connection is required to use the Nintendo Channel (click here if you need assistance connecting your Wii console online), and the WiiConnect24 feature must be turned on"

    I don't want WiiConnect24 to be on ever, especially after installing some downloaded VC games. No thanks.
