Netflix for Wii will no longer require disc

People who use the Netflix Instant Streaming service on their Wii are in luck! So first of all, your streaming discs won’t work anymore. How do you get your Netflix goodness back? You’re going to need to download the Netflix application from the Wii Shop Channel. You’re also going to need to have one of the $8.99 a month subscriptions or higher. Like before though, you won’t be getting any HD streaming on your Wii. Nintendo has limited the Wii’s output to 480p so that’s what you’ll get when you’re streaming Netflix.

Nintendo announces 3DS

Today at the first day of E3, Nintendo had some big news. The much awaited Nintendo 3DS is here! The 3DS has an upper 3.5-inch 3D display which requires no glasses. The bottom touchscreen remains unchanged. There is a slider on the side of the device which allows you to adjust the depth and appearance of the 3D affect on the upper screen. That little dial thing on the left is called the “Slide Pad” and is similar to an analog stick. Other features include a motion sensor, gyroscope, 2 3D-capable cameras, and DSi game compatibility. There is no official word on pricing or release date yet but we do know that the 3DS will come in blue and red. According to the people we’ve heard from who are at E3, this thing is pretty cool!

Well it’s about time! The Nintendo Wii is now able to stream Netflix videos like the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Wii will require a special Netflix “instant-streaming” disc in order to use this cool new feature.

There won’t be any fees besides Netflix’s basic monthly subscription fee. Sign up and get an instant streaming disc here: Netflix sign-up page Read more »
