Napster, once renowed for being the epicentre for music piracy, have agreed to a music streaming deal with Nintendo of Europe to bring their streaming service to the Wii U.

The Napster Wii U app will take advantage of the Wii U's unique features. Current Napster subscribers can listen to their tunes on their Wii U whilst for others, there is a free 30 day trial.

If Nintendo can get Stage 6 and Geocities support, then this gen is over.

EDIT: Here's some more info, Napster are now owned by Rhapsody and they are known as Rhapsody in the US and rest of world. Apart from in Europe where the Napster brand is still alive.

You can sign up for napster and pay £1 a moth for 3 months, (10 a month after that)
quidco offering £10 cashback on new sign ups so you couldin theory be up £7 if you cancel it at 3 months

I didn't know Napster still existed. Why wouldn't Nintendo just go to Spotify like any sane person would think to do? I'm guessing financial reasons. Still I can't imagine this thing getting much interest, and so to that end, I must ask, why bother?
Many could say the same about the WiiU.
Behold, the perfect brand pairing. :P

Why still use the Napster name? Everyone (I assume) would have a bad taste in their mouth from the law suits from years ago. Whatever, I guess. Now if only I could find my old Myspace account so I can log in...
