Many of Wii owners are more than a little disappointed with the current crop of games. There are some absolute gems, Mario Galaxy and Zelda to name a couple, but it seems for every good game there are at least ten of absolute rubbish. As a Wii owner myself, I feel your pain, but luckily there is a solution.
With the advent of downloadable games online for the PC, it was only a matter of time before consoles caught on. All three major home consoles have a system for it now, the Wii’s being the virtual console. However the virtual console games are limited at the moment to re-releases of older games, so for gamers looking for new games to play it is of little use in its current form. It also has no option to download movies, TV or other media which many Wii owners would be interested in.
There is hope though! Recently online companies have started selling downloadable content for a small fee. This includes games, TV shows, films and more. For a Wii owner looking to expand their game collection, this is the perfect solution. For a one off fee you can get games straight to your Wii without ever having to leave your house. These systems surpass Nintendo’s built in virtual console by a long way. The VC has a lot to catch up on if it wants to rival the ever growing popularity of these websites which allow Wii owners to download games much more easily, and more importantly more cheaply than ever before.
