    As in the instant messenger?

    Opera -> Meebo.com

    And... it's actually quite a bad idea. (No offense) After trying it... it's a pain in the ass. Even with keyboard support...

    Probably more interesting (to me) would be a Wii IRC client similar to the one the Dreamcast had...

    If it can be done on the DS it sure as hell can be done on the Wii but that does not mean someone will actually go ahead and do it.

    I wouldn't really see how aim would work on the Wii unless you use a keyboard but then again its better on your pc.

    Right behind you
    I really don't see the point personally since it would be the only thing running on your wii... im is good on pc since it runs in the background.

    If it's to get AIM on your TV, well I still don't see that...but then granted, I can hook my laptop up to my tv anyways.

    You could just use aimonpsp.com using the opera browser. Not the same, but a decent substitute imo [​IMG]

    It'd be neat to have AIM running on a Wii, but it'd be about as practical as a shower cap on a trout.

    Once SoftChip goes alpha I'll consider starting an IRC client.

    Thta would only be useful if you had no other option. Using the webbrowser is hard enough in my opinion.

    I think wii should have a system kinda like the 360 where you are easily able to communicate with other gamers.

    AIM? I dunno, maybe a custom wii messenger would be better.

    One serious downfall of the wii is the lack of being connected with other players elsewhere.
