Wii gets Media Centre application to stream music, films and photos via Wi-Fi

It's called X-OOM Media Centre, and it enables the Wii to stream music, films and photos from a nearby PC via Wi-Fi, with navigation around your digital media collection controlled by the Wiimote. It also gives access to over 1,000 online TV channels. The app comes out in October, and will cost £29.99 in the UK. Nintendo hasn't made a big deal out of Wii's multimedia features, but it seems third-party companies are keen to plug the gap and make the console a true home media centre.

Welcome to the future. Glad Wii owners can now stream media too.

The future is last January apparently...

Wii's had it since then, shortly after release.

Look at the current third / fourth gen games like Halo3 and Ninja Gaiden 2, and you can see that the xbox360 has maxed out graphically. They look pretty similar or even worse than first gen titles from the PS3 such as Motorstorm and Ninja Gaiden Sigma that's a remake port made by a branched off bunch of unimportant kids inexeperienced with the PS3. With an important title like Halo3, you'd think Microsoft would make a giant graphicall leap. But they couldn't.

Grand Turimso 5 is only the beginning for the PS3, and you can tell that no xbox360 game ever will graphically compare. It'll only get better and better, wheras the XBOX360 has had two to three years already and there has been no sign of a graphical breakthrough at all. Grand Turismo 5 is a graphical breakthrough as Motostorm. I'd argue that the xbox360 cannot do Motostorm with all it's dust and mud and particle effects and lighting and physics.

xbox360 is a 60mph car. PS3 is a 200-600 mph Lamborghinni beast. Microsoft plays dirty and changes laws and rules so that all cars faster than it must run at near 60mph so that it would be "fair" to them. They also place sneaky roadblocks and other dirty tricks along the way. But that is bad for ALL gamers. Because graphics will be capped off at 60mph instead of 600mph for this gen unless the PS3 finds a way to counter the bad people...

Microsoft has committed the crime of knowingly releasing faulty hardware to the public.

Microsoft has committed the crime of restricting all graphics power to their maximum level for all consoles in the race, which is pretty low.

Micrsofot and xbots have committed the crime of unethical business practices as you see in this room and through bribed media and secret handshakes.

All gamers suffer because of the xbox360 because all graphics are being capped off at 60mph when it should be 600mph or more this generation. We'll have to wait and see if the PS3 can outmanuever the unethical practices of their competition. You only resort to dirty tricks if you feel you cannot win fair and square.

It's like the xbox360 B-student arranging with the teacher so that all students cannot earn higher than a B grade. I say let the A students earn their A's and stop interfering...!!!

I do not believe that this gen should be capped off at 60mph with the xbox360. ALL GAMERS SHOULD REBEL AGAINST THIS, EVEN THE XBOTS.
