    So the Wii was lighting up again....checked it out and it said that the Shop Channel was offering a Metroid Prime 3 Preview (channel)...free but uses 70 blocks.

    There's 4 previews in the channel...don't know if old as i never did check out a preview at other sites....

    Not bad....but here's wishing that they do demos next.

    Can't wait for the game now.

    EDIT: FYI - Supposedly it uses your Internet connection to stream the vids...read that some people had hard time playing it as it was still buffering...i on the other hand, didn't have any issues (might be that i was doing it at 5am)

    It's just a video? Lame, I can use the internet channel or PC to see that, no need to kill memory blocks.

    I can go on Youtube for videos.

    Also, good that Super Metroid is finally coming to the VC, it wasn't a heck of alot of fun emulating.

    Bout time they used the online capability a little better. I will have to check this out as I am really interested to see Metroid on my big TV.

    Oh and I never knew what that blue light was for, now I know. Thanks.

    Did someone say Super Metroid? That won't reset and lose my save every time I exhale air in the general direction of the system?
