    is the article I posted. I'll quote that as it covers my opinion of the article as well.


    Interesting, huh? I'm curious if Reggie was just referring to DS demo downloads coming to the states and the NYT writer didn't quite get it right, or if there seriously will be full DS game downloads. If so, how will it work? Can you only play in proximity to the Wii? Will they release a DS memory card?

    There are already interfaces that allow one to use an SD card with a DS, so they mighten only need an adapter.

    At any rate, it'd be a need idea and a great way to create some interesting new gaming ideas, perhaps using a DS as a secondary display unit/controller or similar. Mine's just collecting dust, so it'd be nice to see a reason to bust it out.

    They need some kind of "super pak" (in Nintendo style) that contains a slot 2 rumble and memory pack. Download games from the Wii but still have the functionality of the other DS slot 2 expansions so you're not left swapping them all the time.

    I'd like that.

    As someone who saw the light with Steam - I can't wait till all systems let you download the latest and greatest games online. Preload and unlock the second they're released to avoid any high street rushes and online/postal delivery times.

    I have a FireCard for my DS. Got it in HK. Can fit 20 games on it at a time, but it only works with PC's.

    Screw DS titles games, if Nintendo lets you port over your VC games onto your DS ala PSone games with the PS3/PSP then oh baby :D

    So you pirate games? We're talking about a legal solution here.

    Those adapters however are not only made by third parties, but Nintendo actively blocks them from hitting any retail channels.

    Nintendo could make their own, though. Maybe allow transfer of VC games like SNES and NES, or download of GB/GBC/GBA games? :)

    And if he's going to pirate, might as well get one that uses micro SD cards and works on any platform. :confused:

    What's taking Nintendo so long, they should have had this ready last year.
