    Some Wii Online features not ready for launch

    In a press release issued today, Nintendo have announced that many of the Wii's online features will not be available come this Sundays North American launch date.

    These features include the forecast channel which will debut on Dec 20th, and the news channels which is slated for Jan 17th 2007.

    The press release also suggests a delay in the Wii Opera browser with the passage, "more information about the availability of the browser will be released in the coming weeks."

    Nintendo did however confirm that 12 Virtual Console games would be available on launch day, including Donkey Kong, SimCity, Super Mario 64, Sonic the Hedgehog and Bomberman '93.

    The release also confirmed that new VC content would be released every Monday and established pricing for Genesis and Turbo-Grafx games at 800 points ($8) and 600 points ($6) respectively.

    Not good news, I wanted to be really spoilt for choice on what to do on my Wii
    This means you're: A Smart Gamer

    What does it mean?

    You have a good grip on the gaming world. you know what games you enjoy, you remain somewhat even in a debate through the consoles. undoubtably a "Super Fanboy" has called you a fanboy when you are not one but rather just stating facts. you are invalueable in a discussion on consoles.
