Correction: No DS Full Game Downloads

NYT article contained a typo, but demos are still on.

Nintendo contacted the media this morning to correct a statement (http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3165181) made in a recent New York Times interview with Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. In that story, Nintendo apparently confirmed gamers could eventually download complete Nintendo DS titles through their Wii. Previously, Nintendo had said Wii-to-DS downloads would be limited to demos -- and that's still the plan.

Currently, Nintendo does not intend to allow anything more than DS demos via Wii. "Users can download games to play on Wii, and, in the future, the Nintendo DS will be able to receive demo versions of some DS games from Wii, but not the entire game. The demo will be erased once the Nintendo DS is turned off," said a Nintendo representative.

Sorry, folks.
