My alarm clock woke me up at 4:30 this morning, wasn't very impressed. Lol
Anyways, looks like there's finally a reason to have friends on my wii.

What happens if the recipient already has the game??? Or does it automatically tell you right away they they already have that game on their Wii?? It would really suck if you buy a game that they already have.

Any help would be appreciated.

"If your friend already has the game you're trying to give, you'll get a simple message and be bumped back into the catalog to continue shopping."
