Return of the WiiWare Demo

WiiWare Demos
While other companies are offering discounts on digital software during the month of November, Nintendo has opted to treat us to the return of Demos for a selection of WiiWare titles. Starting November 22nd, gamers can sample Bit.Trip Fate, And Yet it Moves, ThruSpace and Jett Rocket, with additional demos being added each Monday and remaining available for “a limited time.”

Admittedly the title selection is nod worthy, but sometimes Nintendo reminds me of that relative that always gets me socks for Christmas. Sure socks are useful, but come on Big N, where’s the love?

Anyway, I’ll be optimistic today and hope that this demo idea catches on, I really believe it has potential.


  1. Limited time demos? Come on Nintendo… it’s 2010 almost 2011. Get with the program!

  2. I’ll get the one for An Yet It Moves.

    @Ujn: Most people still only use the memory included in the Wii itself and don’t use the SD channel thus not too many demos can be available because people are too lazy and a tad stupid to erase them to make room for purchases.

  3. The time limit encourages people with urgency to check out the demos before they aren’t offered anymore.

    Plus, this sort of rotation allows titles to get equal feature time (especially with urgency as a motivator) rather than being thrown into the store and left to be buried by other titles that come up.

    I know that if I knew sometime was going to be offered for a short amount of time, I’d jump on the gun to get it. I’d most likely be checking it out after that, as people (as I know) are naturally curious.
