Buy stuff for your console with Wii Points

Posted on 27th August 2008 by admin in Wii Features

Nintendo’s Wii Virtual Console (similar to XBOX Live Arcade or Playstation Network Store) uses an online currency known as Wii Points. Wii points are available for purchase at the Wii Shop Channel with your credit card or at your local retail outlet. Users are able to spend these points to buy additional content for the Wii Virtual Console, such as the “classic” Nintendo games that we all grew up with.

There is something to be said about being able to experience the humiliation of being defeated by an 8-bit game on a next generation system. Apparently, I no longer possess the skills that I did previously, not in the same quantity anyhow. Nintendo’s official website claims their “Virtual Console is making the greatest video game archive in history available for Wii.” Bold statement, but I can’t denounce it; I know of at least 100 games already, and more titles are being added often.
