DS Downloads a no go if sharing is disabled

At times it’s amazing that Nintendo has done so well with the Wii. For starters, it has sold millions of units in today’s gaming market despite the underpowered graphics and terrible online environment Nintendo crafted. It’s almost as if Nintendo is mad they didn’t think of Xbox Live first, so instead of just copying Microsoft and reaping the benefits they’re purposefully making the online experience a living hell.

The latest culprit for Nintendo’s poor online choices is the Wii-to-DS experience. Should the user decide that he or she doesn’t want Nintendo accessing the download data on their Wii, then the user loses the ability to access downloads for their DS. Why this is so important to Nintendo that they would make it so their most successful handheld doesn’t work to its full potential, because of a settings issue, is rather puzzling.

Just chalk it up to another weird online Nintendo quirk we all have to get used too. But at this point, it really doesn’t surprise us anymore, does it?
