You can't play your downloaded games off the card, though - you have to put them back into your console's flash memory. You can see how this would be a problem when your flash memory is full and you need to keep deleting and transferring your online-purchased games every time you happen to want to play something that's on a card. That's how virtual console games work, anyway. Hopefully Nintendo will have some master plan for Wiiware games, which you have to assume will be much larger in size than an NES ROM no matter how small they are.
