Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

Would you prefer to download a Game Boy Channel for Wii that acted as
a "Game Boy Player" so you can download Game Boy/Color/Advance games
on the Wii Shop Channel...

...or would you prefer to download them on DSi... or both?

I would prefer the Game Boy Channel option

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

By the way, what happens if you accidentally delete a downloaded VC game from your Wii?
Can you download it again for free, or are you screwed?

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

Man, that sucks, especially since your Wii remembers which games you downloaded,
and your account is connected to your credit card (sort of)

EDIT:
They should make a Wii System Update to solve this problem

I thought you could download them again for free if you've already downloaded them once? I was under the impression that it was only if you completely wipe the memory of your Wii that you had to pay for them again.

I was kinda being sarcastic. If your Wii remembers your downloads, then of course it's gonna let you redownload for free.

And the only thing that the System Updates have been doing is attempting to get rid of Homebrew.

Lies!! Once you buy it, you can download it again for free any time you need to. Only applies to the Wii you downloaded it on.

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

I would like them both, I know it won't happen, but I would like it.

Even though I can already download gameboy games to my Wii.....

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

Even though there were things like Game Boy Player so you could play games on the television, I'd still prefer a DSi download. Play handheld games on handhelds.

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

I think it would be nice to have it on both. I would really like to play things like OoA on the Wii and it wouldn't ake that much of a difference excpt a bigger screen.

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

You could just softmod your Wii to play them, or play them through a DS flashcart for the DS, but most obviously they should be on the DS, maybe revamping some features like in Pokemon so you can play the old games over wifi.

Re: Game Boy ROMs, Wii or DSi?

My preference lies with ROMs. Mostly because I have a bunch on my PC already.
