Nintendo Wii ads might get pulled this holiday season

That’s right; Nintendo’s inability to keep up with the high demand has made it clear that the responsible decision is to remove the ads completely. They haven’t quite made the decision to actually do it yet, but if they do, they will be replacing them with Nintendo DS commercials, another great product currently being made by Nintendo.

Well, at least in Japan. What’s it good for you might ask, well lots of things, but mainly release date info, promo vids, and streaming DS demo downloads.

Oh, did that last one get your attention? Figured it would, you read right, if you live in Japan, you can now download and play demos on your DS from your Wii. It’s kind of like the deal Sony has going with the PSP and the PS3.

The Famicom is the Japanese version of the old-school Nintendo Entertainment System. So imagine my glee at hearing that I can now get a Famicom(NES) adapter for my DS’s GBA slot.

It even adds a TV-out port so you can hook up your CRT and it will be just like the good ole days. This adapter does however lessen the portability of the DS, but for the ability to play NES games on the go, I’d say it’s a worthy sacrifice.

It has dual antennas and catches 1Seg signals. The video will be viewable on the top screen with the controls being on the bottom one.

No word on whether it will support the programming guide info that is built into the 1Seg signals or not. But hey, they are just doing what the PSP already can, which is ok, because the DS has a better implementation of it.
