As a Wii hardcore gamer, it's so disappointed that there are few adult games, weak online community, and lack of DVD movie collections playback on the Wii console. Yes, we can do it after you just read this post. On the other hand, Wii doesn't allow us to back up Wii games for only personal use.
Video game culture is a worldwide new media subculture formed by video games. As computer and video games have exponentially increased in popularity over time, they have had a significant influence on popular culture. Video game culture has also evolved over time, hand in hand with internet culture and the increasing popularity of mobile games.
It's not just the PS3 that will be doing its Netflix streaming disc-free from today : the Wii is joining in the fun as well! Notably, over three million Wii consoles are said to have been hooked up with Netflix since the service launched back in Apriland this step should make that number grow even larger. Only question is what we're all going to do with those three million redundant discs now. We can't turn them all into coasters, any ideas?
Beginning today, Netflix members in the United States and Canada can stream content through their Wii consoles with Netflix installed on their Wii Menu. Photo: Business Wire. The Netflix disc that was used for instant streaming on the Wii console will no longer be required.
However, for hardcore gamers, the Wii has always left a bit to be desired. Last generation graphics, few adult games, weak online community, and lack of DVD movie playback are just a few of the things that have led me and many other twenty-somethings to oft-favor a certain other console. However, with my recent discovery of the Homebrew ChannelI can mark one up for the Wii.
Nintendo has released a statement concerning the Wii U eShop's adult content block. Last week, it was revealed that Nintendo had blocked the sale of adult-rated content on its eShop until after 11pm. Nintendo has since confirmed that the sale of mature content has been restricted to comply with German law.
The Wii U is often woefully overlooked when discussing the latest generation of gaming consoles. It seems that the most common decision is whether to opt for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, but any serious gamer that ignores the Wii U is doing so at their own cost. Nintendo consoles have never been about the hardware inside them, but rather about the exclusive games that you can play on them.
As the Nintendo Switch continues to ride a wave of greatness following its launch earlier this year, the Wii U has effectively ridden off into the sunset. The perpetually beleaguered Nintendo console launched in following the success of the Wii, and a short five years later has found itself all but forgotten, as Nintendo gradually but inevitably replaces it with the much more exciting and much more versatile Switch. It was a failure by virtually all metrics, except the one that really matters: the games.
While games like Wii Sports Resort seem to sell by the truckload, many 'mature-themed' titles struggle to break even. Unfortunately this has lead to various games journalists and their readers making a very dubious leap of logic. In short, they're claiming that Nintendo is just for kids. According to certain elements of the gaming community, the poor sales of the above games is proof positive that Nintendo isn't supporting the adult game market and is ignoring hardcore gamers that invest in a Wii.
