Wii users will browse the Internet using their consoles, navigating sites via the new Wii remote controller, a two-handed, motion-sensitive system that allows players to mimic actions on-screen with the movement of their hands.

"For our Wii console launch in 2006, we required a browser that was fast and secure, with support for the latest standards, including AJAX," said Genyo Takeda, senior managing director and general manager of Nintendo's Integrated Research & Development Division.

This Wii system really looks quite amazing - they're trying hard to reinvent the video game industry with this platform.

Good move with including Opera!

You know, I've been completely ignoring the "console wars" (well, as completely as possible without burying my head in the sand), because I could care less about console gaming.

But when I went and looked at that article, and followed a link through to a video demonstrating the nunchuk controler, all I could think was "Holy cow that's cool."

I want one of those nunchuk controlers for my PC. Kicks butt against a regular mouse. Developers use the were "intuitive" to describe ease of controls use so often it's become meaningless. But looking at that controller in action, I can tell it really would be intuitive.

Could someone please get Nintendo out of the console market and get them into redesigning the PC interface?

This is absolutely huge for Opera. I read that Opera received an intitial payment from Nintendo for the work, and Opera is getting a cut for every unit sold.

Based on the E3 videos I saw for the Wii, this thing is going to sell a lot of units. Opera, say hello to a cash waterfall.

Surely that should be "Nintendo", not "Ninentdo" in the message title? ;)

That thread relates to the DS, not the Wii.
