Troy Wolverton: As a game console, Nintendo's Wii U console has gotten mixed reviews. But as a living room digital media device, it's clearly not ready for prime time.
Nintendo has made digital entertainment a priority on the Wii U. At launch, the device was able to stream videos from Netflix (NFLX), and Nintendo added an app for Hulu Plus days later. Earlier this month, Nintendo updated the console with an application called TVii, which is supposed to turn the Wii U into a portal for all your living room entertainment options.
