Wii Ethernet Kit

Nintendo revealed to CVG today that it will release an Ethernet Kit for Wii, which allows users to connect the console to a standard internet router without wireless support.

It's undoubtedly good news after concerns that the lack of an Ethernet port on the Wii meant that the console could only connect to the internet via wireless link-up.

I always find it weird to see opinion pieces reminiscing about a time when the article's author wasn't even alive to see it. This "switch" to profit over creativity in the industry started way back in the NES era when Nintendo controlled the number of games each publisher could release in a given time. This, in turn, made publishers carefully choose what was going to be released.

Things only really got better with the 3DO and later PlayStation, which changed how licensed games were handled. That improvement more or less lasted a generation and a half. By the time of the Xbox 360, we had another enormous cash cow trend in the form of the "casual audience." Since then, there has always been this chase for the next biggest thing to maximize profit.

It's not new; it's been going on for more than ten years now. And it's not going to stop when we have the production costs of the industry going higher and higher.
