    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.

    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?

    W-w-why not Spotify?

    Nintendo if your games weren't so damn fun I'd just... :/

    Didn't know Napster was still around either to be honest. I thought this was actually a joke. We need an official Limewire app.

    Oh, so sharing nintendo videos on youtube is a no go, but illegally sharing MP3's is okay?



    ...that's what napster still does, right? :P

    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 even know they were still even around and honestly who cares? Why not port over Pandora?

    Guys do have a point. I didn't know they were a thing still and we do have Spotify and other similar services. Does this mean Rhapsody will be on the Wii U for the rest of the world?

    Many could say the same about the WiiU.
    Behold, the perfect brand pairing. :P

    If you could stream music while playing games that'd be kinda neat sorta. Not something i'd ever pay for in this day and age though.

    Kind of irrelevant for me either way since I only ever play my WiiU on the gamepad while sitting in front of my PC with headphones on.

    True, but at least the Wii U is something worth checking out. Don't know how anyone could say as much about Napster in this day and age

    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...
