    What do you think nintendo should've done with the Wii channel?

    I for one think it would've been cool to be able to put a background image.

    They could in the future. It wouldn't be to hard to create an update to allow users to do so.

    What would be really smart is to make an extension system, like in Firefox. You could get the little features and other goodies that you want, and the other stuff you can leave alone. Make your Wii truly personalized.

    If only Nintendo really done their research, they would've known that customization is a selling point.

    yeah, look at the xbox 360

    the skins for dashboard are about $1 and gamerpictures/packs are about $1 too, you figure each person with an xbox will buy more than 1 of them, and there are more than 7,000,000 people w/ xboxes, and if they each buy 5 of each, that's $10, OR $70,000,000, for something that cost them about $5000 at most to make them all...

    then there are faceplates, assuming each person buys 1 or 2 faceplates, that's approximately $210,000,000 for something that might have cost them $1,000,000 to make(considering machines they have to buy, labor etc.)

    Modnerds buy Xbox, not Nintendo.

    If Nintendo was Microsoft, they probably could make it a bit easier, seeing as how Microsoft has so many developement/proprietary companies by the balls.

    there is no modding involved in that... simply removing a faceplate or changing a built in menu iption

    My post was referring to the topic in general, not your post specifically, hence why I didn't quote you in that post.

    And you are basing what you said on the assumption that the wii itself won't become more physically alterated. The wii has been out like 8 days.

    oh ok, i realize the software could be changed, but they couldn't really make a new case or faceplate etc., and god forbid they start with skins, those are horrid and they stick to console

    There are near to endless possibilities, and I'm too lazy to think of any. xP But the whole MP3 thing would be pretty cool.

    We all know that you can listen to music with an SD card, but if we had a true music player, that would be awesome.

    I would like to see a music channel where you can listen to the radio or listen to your mp3 on it.

    They should make a studio channel. Where you and a few friends can bring your Miis and play different instruments and get a band together. You could switch instruments with your friends whenever you want and the amount of control you would have over the music would have to very intuitive. Especially the controls.

    music would have been really cool.. and a streaming video source as well with like movie trailers and game trailers/previews. Possibly a lobby system that makes better use of the 24connect service, and a much quicker way to send messages to friends. It would also be nice to have a Wii Updates channel that would give information on any wii news. Maybe that's what the news channel is for but I havent been able to see that yet! By the way add my code, I've added a lot of you on this page but can't seem to send private messages :O
