    I really hope the Wii Ware games are strong and help that take off. X360's VC had some very strong titles like Geometry wars that helped make it very popular.

      the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles should help that out, at least in Japan

      Yeah, I really do want to be able to download some awesome new games for my Wii. Old games are great and all but overpriced and, well, old.
