    Here's Nintendos Official press release in which they go into more detail on the various Wii Channels mentioned earlier today.

    The Wii Channel Menu will be the first screen shown on the television, as it easily integrates itself as part of people’s everyday lives.

    i hope purchasing wiipoints is easy. I don't want any complex stuff. Just 'here is my credit card. Give me some points please' followed by 'here is 1000 points. Give me a game.' Looked at this way, why don't we just buy games straight off credit/debit cards?

    Yea i agree that may be more efficient. The decision to use a point system opens the door for a vast veriety of marketing methods for Nintendo.

    Gift point vouchers, free points with xx products, win points, share points? Tons of options.

    Very true. I wouldnt be surprised if they used it to sell a point a penny in the UK, or one hundred a pound. This would make it easier and more 'sensible' counting, but would make us nearly twice as expensive as the US. it would be odd to buy 1000 points for £7.50 etc....

    I can't wait to make my mii either. I wonder how much space they hold? Obviously not much if you can get them onto the 6 kb on the controller. I wonder if they can interact with each other, like nintendogs etc. You could share and have you and all your friends together on your wii, sleeping, playing games, appearing in your games.

    Nice.

    I doubt it will be a point for a penny. Unless each game is around 500 points, I'm thinking 20 points for a NES game ($3-$5????) Either way, we'll still get a great deal without having to go out and buy each individual game we can find! Nintendo is so awesome. :wink:


    Press conference will give details on price... Yes!!

    Hoping that $200 covers a Wii, 2 controllers, and Wii Sports (Or LOZ:TP) Idc

    I Dont Know859, this is a GREAT QUESTION that needs to be answered. Also, how much is a classic controller, and what the heck happened to those 'zappers'? That was never addressed. We need to make an "unanswered questions" thread around here. :scared:

    Do you think it can playback music when you are playing games?

    I wonder if your Mii also "holds" your controller settings? I'll be a bit annoyed if I can't save my sensetivity and controller settings to the Wii itself because those would probably take up less space than a Mii. There will probably be a hack to get your settings on your wiimote if Nintendo doesn't let you do it by default.

    thats a cool idea, like your playing with your Mii with full sensetivity right handed, then your sister goes on and selects her Mii and starts playing with half sensetivity and left handed

    Thanks, Sovieto.:smilewinkgrin:

    I didn't even realize you could have multiple people using the same Wiimote and since you can make and save quite a few Miis on a wiimote, that would be great.

    I also hope your Mii, like the main Mii you use, will be used as your online profile when playing against others. In one of the Mii videos, it shows a bunch of Mii's standing around and maybe that's how you could find people to play with you. Just walk around in a lobby and click on other people's Miis and have your Mii say "Want to play Mii?" and that would then launch the game. I know, as more people get Wiis, it would be very difficult to find your friends, but then they could just like enter in your Mii name and find you and save you on a friend list. I really hope Nintendo atleast comes up with a gamer-ranking system, like Xbox Live's opti-match system that puts you up against people who have a similar skill level as you.

    NO MORE FRIEND CODES!!!
