The Nintendo Wii is the fastest selling video game console ever made and still is continuing to grow, sale-wise, but it looks like the Nintendo Wii, itself, isn’t finished growing. As you may already know, Nintendo’s plan for its console is to generate more revenue from content.
And to help it’s reach its goal, Nintendo is planning to launch a TV program on its console called Wiinoma in Japan by the end of this year. Along with it, comes plans for an international expansion.
The program will be available to those with both a Wii console and an internet connection, and will feature cartoons, cookery programs, brain-training quizzes and lifestyle shows. The company has plans to make most of the content free, but there will also be some pay-per-view content via Wii Points.
As you can probably see, this is going to cause some worries between Japanese television executives because this is just a next step in the Wii becoming, “the centre-piece of the living room”.
