Wii Game Gifting

Nintendo has announced that friends can now buy VC titles for friends

Also today in Japan, the company unveiled a new channel for its console which will allow Wii owners to give Virtual Console games to one another as gifts.

"We think this will be a breakthrough in encouraging customers to spread news of fun games via word of mouth," Iwata told the AP. "We also hope to spur more users to connect their Wiis to the Internet." Such statements stand in stark contrast to Iwata's position during the GameCube era, where he said that consumers were averse to consoles with online functionalities.

Unfortunately, no further information on the Wii game-gift channel was available as of press time. Nintendo of America reps said they had no further details, but urged Nintendo fans to "stay tuned."
I'd love this option, if I actually had someone to give them to!

I have many wii friends, just no one to gift games to

That's a pretty cool idea. This is a good time for them to announce this as well, with the holidays coming up.

So can you give a VC game that you already have purchased to a friend, or do you have to specify that friend as the recipient when buying the game? Otherwise that would be a cool way to let friends "borrow" VC games. They could just "gift" them back to you when they were done with them.
