Informative little video here

The DS demo download feature is the big highlight for me, but I think the ability to do mini ratings for games you've played and read other such ratings in the form of pie chart summaries is a brilliant move for the Wii's big casual market--assuming they've figured out how to connect their Wii to the internet.

I'm not seeing this in the shop channel. Is Europe getting the channel later or something?

DS demos would be nice, if they would just do a firmware update to allow it to accept something better than WEP.

Looks like it's scheduled for May 30 in Europe.  The NA release is 5 days early so perhaps it'll come earlier than schedule in the EU as well.

I got a notice from Nintendo last night sometime on my Wii talking about this. Seems interesting enough.

Or to let me run stuff off of my SD card!

I'm out of room.  I had to clear out all kinds of things to make room for this.

If they want me buying some Wiiware they'd better give me another storage option.

Crap, I forgot all about the WEP thing.  And I was looking forward to the DS demos too (want to try out Dragon Sword).  I guess if I'm interested enough I can turn off security for the few minutes I would spend with a demo but it's still a pain.

Just tried it out, you don't need WEP to transfer demos it turns out. Works good.

I wouldn't think WEP would matter when transferring a demo from the Wii to the DS. I wish they would allow the Wii to act as a wireless access point for the DS.

What is the point of recommendations? I never see any ratings when I am looking at games in the channel.
