    "Fujisoft's Minna no Theater Wii (Everybody's Theater Wii), essentially a video rental service, will launch on January 27 in Japan, after slipping from its original December release date. We already knew that purchasing the video viewer cost 500 Wii Points, but now we have concrete prices for renting content:

    * A single title for two days: 300 Wii Points
    * Two titles for three days: 600 Wii Points
    * Three titles for five days: 800 Wii Points

    When it launches next month, 3,000 pieces of video content will be available. These span 150 franchises, including Astro Boy, Transformers, Hajime no Ippo, and Dogtanian. Anime currently dominates the line-up, though movies, drama, and educational shows will also be present, if a bit scarcer.

    A further 50 pieces of content will be released every month following the launch, and Fujisoft claims its content comes "close" to delivering DVD quality. It's just a shame we'll probably never see this here to test that statement."

    Even though this isn't likely coming to America, a LOT of the casual Wii owners would LOVE this.

    This makes alot of sense and can become extremely profitable. If they ever do decide to bring this to the States I can guarantee movie studios would love to jump on the Wii band wagon.

    Just as long as it has good streaming speeds.
