    Well all day I've been trying to download Mario Bros, Gunstar Heros ...maybe a few others...but the Shop Channel was going slow, and I never got there, or it just never gets past the connecting screen...anyone else have a similar problem?

    Darn it Nintendo let me give you money!!:(

    Mine has worked all day.

    Loaded my sister up with 2000 points, we're playing Mario 64 and SMB because my other brother (who was going to buy a game for her) neglected to do his duty.

    I'd say on Chistmas day it might be slow at times since everyone and their sister is wanting Mario 64 :)

    Granted, I dont know how big these programs are when they are converted to the Wii platform, but the original ROM sizes for these games were a 100K or so.
