    I think this is the first thread of this, but there's a new Wii Channel available: Nintendo Channel(creative name there). It's free, and if you updated your Wii around middle of March you should be set. It basically works as a DS Download Station, you can download DS game trials, and even rate them! This is what many fans have been wanting, so download it, NOW. I will in a little bit after my Wi-Fi stops screwing up. Apparently it was released in Japan almost a half a year ago, but it's out in NA today and in Europe on May 30

    i'm actually impressed. this has a lot more content than i thought it would. i noticed a "Purchase" button in the game profiles too. that's pretty ingenious to have right on the console there.

    Would be cool if they've added a save anywhere feature in the old NES/GB/SNES games, like in the roms.

    Comes in handy with Zelda 2 and Gradius, starting all the way over sucks these days

    Well when I had my Wii and I was playing Kid Icarus, it would always save where I left off.

    No Wii demos or games, just DS demos and videos. Not quite that exciting just yet.

    There is a save-state feature, similiar to many Emulators.

    Just hit the "Home" button and exit to the menu. When you go back, don't "reset" the game, just clear the window and bam, you're EXACTLY where you left off. This only doesn't work on N64 and NeoGeo games.

    Nintendo Channel rocks. My girlfriend and I spent like 2 hours trying out all the demos.
