    Wii Live's Top 5 Channel Idea's

    The Wii have a great innovative use of channels. Weather channel (doesnít work), News Channel, (rarely used), Everybody Votes Channel (decentÖ), and so on. And Channels we still have yet to get, such as Everybodys Nintendo Channel, Mario Kart Wii Channel, and more to come. By why donít we take a look at some channels Nintendo should start looking into? Here is Wii Liveís top 5 Channel Ideaís.

    Demo Channel

    Go ahead, say ďWii doesnít have a hard drive! It canít have demos!Ē Well, first off, Iím pretty sure that Nintendo will unveal a hard drive, or some sort of better solution at E3, but it seems they have found a different way to save space, of course, not as easy as an HDD or HDD support.
    Nintendo revealed that with there Wii Ware titles, when downloaded, the game files are compressed into a much smaller size, how much smaller? Not quite sure, but from the way it sounds, it could be more then half the size.

    When the game is booted, the file is decompressed, and the full game is played. Now, why canít Nintendo do this with Demos? With the money Nintendo has been raking in, Iím sure the costs of developing a demo canít be much. I wouldnít be surprised if Nintendo made a demo channel. Making a HDD or a firmware update for HDD support isnít hard, and once that is done, the oppurtunity for demoís is wide open.

    Chat Channel

    Why not? Nintendo is going to support voice chat soon, with IGN predicting Q3, and a headset peripheral is likely to be announced at E3, and Keyboard funcionality is already supported. I donít want to have people on my Wii Console friends list just so I can show them the Borat Mii I made. Some more communication would be nice.

    Once Nintendo finally starts supporting Voice Chat, you should be able to communicate with youíre Wii friends alot more. The chat channel could allow you and a friend, or a group of friends, to set up a chat room, either Text, or Voice.

    Stat Channel

    Lets be honest. Nintendo doesnít have the biggest selection of WiFi compatible games for Wii. So why would it be hard to track all the stats from each game in one channel? The stat channel could be youíre official source for the leader boards from every Nintendo WiFi compatible game for Wii. Some may say it is pointless, but why not? It could be useful. It could track detailed stats for specific games, such as kills and deaths, how many times you have smash attacked someone, which character is often used, all of this for Brawl.
    Sports Channel

    If Japan gets exclusive channels, then America should too. There is alot of news going on in sports outside of Wii Sports, weather itís Baseball, Football, Basket Ball, or any other sport. The Sport Channel will give you all the latest highlights, scores, player news, and why not pause Smash Bros to check out how youíre teams doing? Wait a minute. You donít pause Smash BrosÖ.

    Community Channel

    One of the things the Wii is extreamly lacking is an online community. This is one of the channel ideas that is probably least likely to come true. The Wii Community Channel is the place where you go to hang with other Wii owners. Sort of like a Message Board kinda thing, except as a channel on youíre wii. Find people who play the same games as you, add them to youíre Wii friends list, then school them online.

    There you have it. Now remember, these are just channel suggestions, weather they are likely to come true or not, these are channels we think would be cool to have. Thanks for reading Wii Liveís Top 5 Channel Ideaís

    How about a 'Playboy Channel' which could be linked to a 'Everybody votes for a Playmate'

    I don't care if they add channels, what they REALLY need to do is fix their online friend system. It's horrible.

    Demo Channel would be pretty nice, but a hard drive really is needed. Unless they did decide to compress the demo's but still. If we had a drive we could add all these channels no problem.

    Voice chat should package or launch with Animal Crossing, thats my guess. Maybe Pikmin 3? Chat Channel has a decent chance of happening in my books, at least we know voice chat is coming soon. Chat channel could lead to that community channel which is a big step up on the Mii Channel.

    I would like those three to happen.
