    A whole bunch of tips to start designing sites for the Wii browser.

    Here's a snippet:

    First, one of the biggest questions is: What resolution will it display at?

    Their own CSS file gave it away: /* Limit page to 640 by 480 (NTSC TV resolution) */ /* Note: PAL resolution is 640 by 528 */ body { /*width: 608px; height: 456px; */

    Pictures, downloads, fonts, more:

    Nice. Then again, last time I browsed the internet on my TV was with the Dreamcast. That was with dial up and because not many people had PCs. But I've grown too used to a key board and mouse to try out new ways in browsing... like with the PSP. Man typing in a reply will take forever.

    I found it pretty easy to type at a reasonable speed on the Wii.

    I'm just curious to see the added features that this will give you, like downloadable skins for the backround of the wii menu or screensavers or something for it. It seems that this can give the Wii a lot of momentum to make it great. Lets just hope that there will be downloadable demos like xbox 360 gives you, perhaps a harddrive backup?
