Wii Channel Issues – Zooming Slowly

Mym6 of the Infendo Forums is currently experiencing a little problem with his Nintendo Wii and the way Channels Zoom in. I’m curious if anyone else has noticed this.  Some channels will zoom in very slowly.  My Mario Kart and Nintendo Channels both zoom in very slowly compared to others.  If I move those channels to a blank screen they zoom quickly again. I haven’t noticed this on ...

Nintendo Channel now available for Wii

Was your Wii flashing blue this morning? Nope, it wasn’t another Mario Kart challenge .. the Nintendo Channel is now available to download! I hopped on my Wii, went to the Shop Channel, and started the download. Firing up the Nintendo Channel plays a short video preview of what the channel contains.

WiiWare launched today in Japan along with a handful of games and the reactions have been — if we’re going to reduce each to a word or phrase — muted, surprising and  “frackin’ expensive!”

Nintendo ramps up Wii Fit marketing, shifts industry yet again

Wii Fit is big in Japan (1.5 million sold in three months) and arguably will be as big if not bigger in the US when it goes live in a month or so (more people, more people who subscribe to new “weight loss” gimmicks, Wii’s existing momentum among people outside the now incorrectly described “core” or “traditional gamer”).
