Sony Announces, Microsoft Announcing now, Nintendo is sure to follow. Everything is going digital. Great to see competition pushing these companies to unveil new stuff.

When have they ever been on time with anything the others do? [they follow their own path for better or worse]

Nintendo hasnt even gotten online gaming off the ground I doubt this will happen anytime soon. In fact...i'll put money on Nintendo not implementing movies on demand this generation at all. Who'd want to watch these movies in 480p max anyways?

Well, MS and Sony's will have HD offerings while Wii has no HD and small HDD.

TriggerHappy4124d ago

I read somewhere that, Sony was going to work with Ninty to bring HD to the wii ? I could be wrong..

Bnet3434124d ago

Wii doesn't have a small HDD, I think it's called flash memory.

Does this cost money or is it free like Play TV on ps3

mighty_douche4124d ago

each program will have a cost, abit like itunes. there was a thread on here the other day about it, they said if you wanted to download a season of family guy it would work out around twice the price of buying the dvd's, sooo yeah not free...

tonsoffun4124d ago (Edited 4124d ago )

sounds very familiar..... itunes anyone?

seriously - I already have TV on demand with my cable package, I have no need for this at all.

COOLROOM ? Again, Sony's HOME says 'Hi'
