A Nintendo of America representative has told Gamasutra that an earlier report from the New York Times claiming full DS downloads would be coming from a future Wii channel were incorrect, saying DS demos will be as far as the service will offer.

The article maintained that Reggie Fils-Aime had announced plans for full downloads in a conversation with the Times on future DS and Wii integration, but Nintendo of America has said the story was incorrect.

"Users can download games to play on Wii," the representative said, "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."

Nintendo has already launched its "Everyone's Nintendo" Wii channel in Japan, offering information and streaming videos on upcoming Nintendo titles, as well as DS game demos. No further information on when the service will launch in other territories has yet been made available.
