More Wii News
Nintendo released more information about the new Wii console yesterday and while part of it ticks me off, the other part makes me happy so it all evens out.
First, the system will be released in the US two weeks before its released in Japan. Personally, I think thats a crock but what do you do? At least when it comes out here, all of the internet functions will be enabled while the US release will have almost no internet functionality on day one.
Second, this is the part that makes me very happy, the Wii will be region free. For the non-gamers out there that means I can buy games from the US and Japan and both will be able to play on my machine without me installing a mod chip. I think this will also hold true with Gamecube games as well.
Other news that came out was that the system will have an SD card slot for storage which means that I will probably pick up a cheap two or four gig SD card for the system. I am really excited for the Wii to come out now, I wish I just didn't have to wait to get it. I think it will be a truly new gaming experience and I am all for it.
