If you haven’t heard yet, the Internet Channel on Wii’s price droped from 500 points to free about a month ago. Nintendo is refunding those who bought the channel back when it was priced at 500 points. The new WiiShop Channel update allows those who did purchase it to download one free NES title, but the title must cost 500 points so no Import NES titles. If some one gifted you the channel you will be able to download a free NES game, but the one who sent the channel will not receive anything.
You can get the free NES game by updating your Wii Shop Channel and clicking the “One Free title” button in the channel. The deal will expire at 11:59 pm on December 31st 2009.
I got the Internet Channel back when it was free, so no NES title for me. Final Fantasy is probably one of the better NES titles to recently hit the Virtual Console. Then of course there are games like Mario, Megaman, Zelda, Metroid etc. For those of you who are getting a free NES game, what game do you think you will be picking up?
Thanks to both Mega_Mario and Pikmin who also sent this info in.
