    Internet Channel: Full version update

    An update on the functionality and why the full version has been delayed...


    http://us.wii.com/story_internet.jsp


    To be fair reading thru it, it doesn't tell you anything you couldn't have guessed at..i.e: made some changes due to feedback, added extra controls, made searching less of a pain etc etc...

    MINI RANT:
    But to be fair - why should the full version be charged for at all?!? When you think about it, the browser is sort of standard for any converged gadget - they want you to surf the net to look at all the products they are trying to get you excited about and promotional material anyway, WTF should you have to pay for the privilege when nobody else charges for something so basic on a system.

    I just can't understand the philosophy on this issue, what's a bigger insult is to offer it for FREE and then start charging for it after a certain period...can anyone answer this one cause I am stumped.

    Sure there has been a lot of dev gone into this feature but they want you to purchase: hardware, games, VC games and NOW buy a bog standard browser....I am at a loss

    Damn I saw the thread title and thought it was available.

    And it does seem..odd, to charge us for it. But isn't it free if we download it before a certain time, if so then I'm not bothered.

    Edit: Maybe the free bits a gift for the true Nintendo fans who's already got a wii?

    Sorry to disappoint but what about the 'true' fans who can't get hold of a Wii before that date (and god knows let's hope they can) - why penalise them because of supply issues beyond their control!

    true fans allready got it :P
    You can get a hold of it in Norway now anyway, or you can buy mine.
    Allso they can give it free for a period of time. They can say becuase the delay it will be free for eks one month. If you dont got a wii the delay would not effected you, and if you dont hear about it before its over the delay didnt effect you either. So that way they wannt be unfair against anyone.

    I agree that it's stupid to be charging for such a common and simple program after a certain period of time.

    I preordered mine (online) in August. You aren't a true fan unless you either preorder early (online) or queue up over a long cold night.
    I will be going to oxford street bright and early for the next gen console though
