What the heck are these guys talking about? I think WiiWare is awesome! Games like Final Fantasy CC (The Sim Ones) Castlevania & Contra Reboots And others like Pokemon Rumble and Bubble Bobble Plus. I think it's a great service and most of the games range from 10-15 dollers! I think DSI Ware has a few good games, but I'm not too sure on PSP Minis (Don't have a PSP Currently)

And yet they say PSN STORE & XBOX LIVE STORE are so much better? Well they are great but it's not fair for the Wii if you don't include all the great Virtual Console titles if you're going to compare. I personally think The WII has the best online store, if I'm going to spend money online it will be for WiiWare & Virtual Console. But I also like to get PS1 Classics too (They're Awesome) But this is all just my opinion.
