    There should be a HOME for Wii

    well with the home comming to the playstation 3 they should have a wiiware that is like HOME. They could have bulliten boards that have ads on it so they would be making money in the process.

    Im kinda suprised they haven't mentioned plans to further there SIM type setup. We got as far as Mii's interacting with eachother "way before PS3 Home was started" now they just need to up it a notch and give us better online community for the Mii's to wander and play in.
    I'm sure something is in the works like that already.

    imagine that eh? there could be a community which could have wii games intergrated into them. for example, u are wandering about in the virtual city and u see a game of wii sports baseball going on. u join the game.

    Unfortunately Iwata had say virtual world isn't really one if Big N concern atm. I've never heard of ps3 HOME so wouldn't know what that is but I think we're not gonna get much more of mii unfortunately. I really think that's a waste.. we only use them in like 3 or 4 games now.. if Big N really make a community out of the mii channel it'd sky rocket :3 but then again they actually removed the NPower forum so that lowers my expectation even more.

    Actually. I thought of this years ago. When the Wii was first announced as "Revolution".
    I was gonna send Nintendo a letter with all the ideas but then Nintendo told me they were not allowed to take gameplay ideas from the general public. You have to be employed by Nintendo to give ANY game ideas or input.

    My idea was a little different though.

    I don't know much about Home so my idea may be in another league, but I figure Home should be similar. My idea was sorta like a dating sim. Where you could meet and chat with people and make friends or even have a "virtual girlfriend". I wanted to make the game be placed in a mini city environment. With a nightclub being the center of the game. I thought this would be a cool and interactive way to meet friends and later play online games with them.
    The point was mainly to build a Wii online community. It would have been easy to find people who have the same interests as you. You can then invite them to a game of Wii bowling or simply spill a martini on a girls dress. Anything was possible.

    I put so much thought into this game only to be turned down by nintendo.

    When Nintendo first anounced the Mii I thought it was gonna be HUGE!!!
    I could only imagine my face on so many games!! And when EA announced MySims I thought BINGO!! A big Mii community. Unfortunately EA decided to make more work and create their own character models when they simply could have used user created Mii's.
    It strikes me as odd how a lot of 3rd party developers are turned off by the Mii idea. I think the Mii idea is amazing. But unfortunately no one is taking advantage of it.
    I really had hoped Mii's would be a secret character in Brawl. (Using the Wii remote as a weapon and other fanboy moves) but I don't think it happened. (IF IT DID PLEASE DONT TELL ME I AM AVOIDING BRAWL SPOILERS)
    AND WHY THE HELL did Nintendo not make Wii Sports online?? With just this one little game,
    Nintendo would have created an online community far greater than Xbox Live.

    I really wondering what is the big deal with HOME at this point? I mean you meet up with friends on line to watch virtual movies? This is really becoming a gimmick to me and but hey if it takes off then good for them. I would like a version of quake as my HOME any way.

    Some thing not needed? Yep I don't think many people NEED Home. People Do need a Wii. I hope it does well but really why would I want to watch a movie virtually with friends? I mean why does that not sound very lame? Hey but maybe it's like animal crossing to people. The trophy and house sounds ok but the gamer tag for the xbox is much better. Now if they made HOME like a city with demos of games running or some thing then I could understand that but really I need to see more before I can say yes people will actually use this really if you are hyped about it then can you tell me why I want to be hyped about it too!

    I can really see a future for an idea like this. It would definitely be good for online play and for interaction, and for finding out how many Wii users there are around.
    Nintendo DOES need to start taking advice and ideas too, I mean, we are as smart as them anyway...
    meh...
