    I think we should have a different type of game for the wii. Basically, whilst your waiting for the loading screen to go by, the game will show you a short advert. By doing this there will be lest of a cost for a game for the wii, and this saving will past on to us. So u get entertained whilst waiting for a game to load or waiting for any loading screen.

    feel free to post your thoughts here.

    How will this put sown the cost for the game?

    And are you so impatient that you can't just wait a few seconds for the game to load?

    i think that would get annoying unless the advert changed everytime but that would mean waiting for it to download

    I think it would work in the Wii Shop Channel - showing some gameplay videos of the game you downloaded whilst waiting, or summat similar.

    In disc-based games, the Wii is too fast when loading compared to 360/PS3 so the ads would be a waste. Besides, sports and racing games get plenty of advertisements.

    did you know that to develop a wii game, it costs about 1/5 of the price of developing a PS3 or Xbox 360 game? why cut costs on wii games, when they are a hell of a lot cheaper

    Yeah it would be nice to have it in the Wii Shop Channel rather then just watching that retro Mario hit the blocks...

    Well ive only played 3 games and they have short loading times (like 2seconds) so i think its pointless in games but like others have said it would be great in the shop

    Nice idea. as long as it doesn't interfere with gamplay and price (other than down it). Like posters or adverts on a game like gta would make it more belivable.. or something :p. But zelda with nokia commercials in the middle of a battle wouldn't make me very happy...

    ever play a game called downhill domination on PS2? well it had ebay adds on the courses... all it does is pocket the devloper a bit of cash... and they mostly don't bother to use it in the reduction of prices
