Virtual Console Rentals?

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed.

It seems that it may be possible at some point to temporarily download Virtual Console games for the Wii. This was discovered by British Gaming Blog when one of their staff was browsing the Wii Shop Channel on a PC and found the URL for the SNES games section very interesting, as it is


That may not seem like much to you, but the important part is the license=PERMANENT. Could this mean that at some time you may be able to download games via the Virtual Console, but not permanently, or in other words rent them. We don’t know at the minute, but hopefully we’ll find out soon.

    I’d think that i’d be for homebrew games that third party developers have released that are pay per month or something

    Sounds like a nice idea, but hopefully if there are rentals they’ll be really cheap.

  3. 3 unlimited video game rentals

    You can get a free trial to rent video games at and not have to pay anything as long as you cancel

    before the trial runs out. I signed up for the trial at http://unlimitedgamerental.com/free-trial.php

    myself but ended up staying subscribed since they do have a lot of games and are fast with
