    Hopefully this means something sweet, and not some shitty Mii DS game.

    WTF! [​IMG]

    Where did that button come from? An update within a game?

    Looks like a fake to me. The screen flicker makes me think it was on a computer and someone just created a mock Mii CHannel using flash.

    Looks like the video was recorded using a webcam or something which could explain the refresh rate flicker [​IMG]

    Mate, that happens when you try to record from a crappy camera on one of those shitty TVs (non-LCD screens)

    I'm trying to get a hold of the person who sent me the video. I'm asking for more photos/video.

    Looks real. The flicker can happen on a normal TV....

    I don't really believe a button combo would unlock it, nintendo has already announced the DS and Wii will connect together to unlock content etc, but I'd expect that to come with a firmware update.

    I definietely think it's fake. There's no ™ after the "DS". And since when have Nintendo ever referred to it as just "DS"? They always call their consoles by their full name "Nintendo DS ™". They even get anal over people calling them GameBoy and not "Game Boy".

    I don't think that's really worth mentioning.. whenever I'm using the Wii, I only really rotate the hand while I'm waiting around for something to happen [​IMG]

    if the Mii character didn't move or something, it would be a huge giveaway, but I think this is pretty well done if it does turn out to be a fake

    The hand stays exactly at the angle of my mouse cursor (a Wii hand style cursor) in Windows.

    Or if you use the Classic Controller in the menu it also looks like a "Windows Cursor". But I'm not shure it works in the Mii Channel?
