Wii Gets Its Own Network

Video gamers, rejoice: You may never have to leave your home again.

Nintendo launched its new Nintendo Channel for Wii users in the U.S. today. The channel lets you demo games, read all about ’em, and – yep – even purchase them without ever taking your hand off the controller. The antisocial world may never be the same.

The program even adds a Tivoesque “tracking” feature that can monitor the games you play, then make new recommendations based on your preferences. Either that, or use you as a free marketing tool for Nintendo developers…I’m not sure.
