Wii downloads for DS CORRECTION!

I know something didn’t seem right from a story we posted yesterday in our post “In the News – #7.”

A story that went around the internet a few days ago that you could download complete DS games from your Nintendo Wii and transfer them to the DS is INCORRECT. We thought this didn’t sound right because you wouldn’t be able to save the game onto your DS, it would disappear once you turned the DS off.

This is the statement from Nintendo’s PR firm:

“An article about the Nintendo DS video game system in the December 31 Business Day section (of the NYT) incorrectly referred to future capabilities of the device. The statement that complete Nintendo DS games will eventually be able to be downloaded into the device via a wireless connection with the company’s Wii game console is incorrect. Users can download games to play on Wii, and, in the future, the Nintendo DS will be able to receive demo versions of some DS games from Wii, but not the entire game. The demo will be erased once the Nintendo DS is turned off.”
