Independent Wii U developer Helix Games has expressed interest in releasing a Wii U media player on the eShop, pending fan feedback and Nintendo approval.
if its free definitely make it
They might as well throw mkv playback with embedded subtitle support in while their at it. Gateway MT6706 2008
Please do, it doesn't have a blu-ray player which is enough so this would be a very welcoming addition. I don't like that it has to be over a wired connection though when most people don't have a Wii LAN adapter. External drive support would be nice also, as most my movies and stuff like that are all on a backup drive. I personally always thought it was ridiculous having to buy something that has been so common in consoles anyway, an ethernet port. Sigh Nintendo and their odd choices sometimes.
Thought it does have a BR drive, just a derivative, proprietary design.
I'd buy it, as long as it wasn't more than 10 bucks or so. I guess it'd depend on the features, but I'm totally down for it.
That would be awesome. I dont think there are to many ways to be able to watch your videos on old TVs without HDMI. Not that I need that, but in poorer countries that would increase Wii U value a lot.
It's kind of sad that an independent developer is implementing this rather than Nintendo itself.
