News: Nintendo of Japan plans to update Wii with DS demos.
At Nintendo Japan's press conference the company announced it is looking at ways of bringing Nintendo DS Download Stations to the homes of Wii owners.
For those of you not in the know, Nintendo DS Download Stations are located in supported stores and are a source of downloadable demos. Once the DS has been shut down the demo will no longer be on it so it can be a little annoying to go to a store, download a demo and no longer have it later on. Nintendo is saying it plans to make the Wii serve as a Download Station ? the demos will still be gone when you turn the DS off, but it's better than traipsing back to the store again.
Sadly, Nintendo has not revealed a timeline for when this service might go live. The company had discussed the possibility of extending the Download Station service to the Wii when it was first announced but even if we don't know when, at least we know it's in the pipeline.
