    What's the point of the Wii web browser?

    Perhaps I am wrong in this assumption, but don't at least most of you folks own a computer? If so, what's the point of using the Wii web browser? It's slower (no keyboard), can do less (can you watch movies, play games, etc?), etc. So what's the advantage other than the gimmick of using your Wii as a web browser? It seems like a waste of $5+.

    The only reason most people have it (including me) is because it was free up until June 2007. After that, it cost $5. Now, you're right, if you have a computer, there is no point in purchasing it.

    Actually in my house there are 5 kids, I have a laptop, My brother has a comp, and my other brother has a comp aswell. but my 2 sises dont, so they have to ask us if they wanna use the net, but now we tell them to go on the wii. For us its a damn gud technology.

    I find it a lot easier to use if you are on wiichat. People will give you their wii codes and you can just enter them right away onto your wii...laziness mostly lol

    I got it when it was free too. I used it once. I typed in www.google.com and was amused to see it on my TV for 2.4 seconds, and then I moved on with life and never opened the useless application again.

    there is actually a load of things that you can do on the wii browser that are cool. You can stream all you files to your tv using ORB which is good if you don't have a massive computer screen and if ninty didn't include a wii browser everyone would moan. you can also play some good online games made for use with the wii remote.
    My opinion is neither copyrighted or trademarked, and it's price competitive. If you like, I'll trade for one of yours.

    It's slower (no keyboard)
    The Wii supports USB keyboards and, in my experience, the Wii Browser actually loads a tad faster than my computer's browser.
    can do less (can you watch movies, play games, etc?)
    Yes, you can watch videos and play games; the Wii Browser supports Flash.
    So what's the advantage other than the gimmick of using your Wii as a web browser? It seems like a waste of $5+.
    The advantage, as I see it, is having an extra outlet for Internet access when any and all others around you are taken. It's not worth the $5, but I got it for free.
