Definitely a hint at the possibility, but I still find it funny how Nintendo has yet to comment on this "news."
An actual, physical store or a download service?
This is cool, but I may just continue burning dvds. Also what about the wii's memory?
It's a download service like the Virtual Console, probably.
Anyway, I just buy my DVD's cheap and play them with DVDx and Mplayer. I'm also guessing that they'll be packing it with crappy "family" titles and nothing that will actually be good.
Due to the Wii's lack of internal memory, I imagine this will download to your SD card or something. Personally won't be using this. I'm happy enough with DVDs still.
I doubt it. That would get mighty expensive if you were saving movies to SDs. Figure one large (4GB) SD card can hold maybe one movie. So, after you've paid for the movie and the SD card to save it to, you've already pretty much shelled out the cost of a DVD and the gas to go up to the store to buy it.
My guess? It will be an On Demand-type thing, which would be as useless as many of Nintendo's other channels. Again, though, Nintendo hasn't issued any statement about this idea.
One movie in .avi format is 700MB, a 4GB movie would be in 720p quality which the Wii can't even display. But yes, using SD cards is still a waste of memory. Unless they will be using a different format, which could decrease the size greatly.
Hmm. IOS57 is in the works and it seems like it will improve USB capabilities.
Connect two and...
Guaranteed you won't see anything beyond kiddie movies and stuff for soccer moms on it, doubt you will see R rated films thats for sure.
and strong bad
