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.


Three Classics come to Channel

The Wii Shop Channel allows users to simply use their Wii to download or purchase available games. In saying this they have recently released three classics into the Channel for all to admire. The latest to be set free is the classic Metroid from the NES. It is just one of many games to be released upon the upcoming release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, on August 27th.

Along with this comes two more classics, Shinobi III: Return Of The Ninja Master which continues to impress. When we left Joe Musashi he believed that Neo Zeed was dead but he indeed is still alive and well. Joe must return from exile and face his past in order to free his future.

Secondly we have Neutopia. You take control of a brave young boy who sets of on a journey to rescue the kidnapped princess and return the eight medallions that were stolen by the evil demon Dirth.

These games are just a taste to come. So stay tuned for more information related to similar games on the Wii Channel.
