Not only does the Nintendo Wii let you play all the latest games with the sweet motion-sensitive Wiimote, it also hooks you up to the internet so you can download games. With the Wii Virtual Console you can find dozens of games from the original Nintendo, Sega Genesis, SNES, N64, Turbografix 16 and other game systems. Then, for just a couple of bucks, you can download them and play them any time you want. Here's how it works and a list of what games are available.


Wii Game Downloads

The Wii Shopping Channel is an online shopping system you can get to by hooking your Wii up to the internet. To do this, you can pick up a $50 Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Adaptor and plug it into a nearby computer. Or you can pick up a special $50 Wii Adaptor and plug a network cable in. Once you're online with the Wii Shopping Channel you'll be able to find all the Wii Virtual Console games. The games cost Wii Points to download and you can get 2,000 for a $20 card at video game stores, or with a credit card. 100 Wii Points = $1 so most games cost $5-$8. Armed with Wii Points, you can download the games you want. Downloaded games show up on your Wii Channels so you can play them whenever you want.
