Wii Netflix Streaming

If you’re a gamer who doesn’t own an or PS3, then you’ve been left out in the cold as it pertains to streaming. All of that changes this Spring, though, as Netflix and Nintendo have announced a partnership that will allow you to stream Netflix instant content using your console. Similar to the Playstation 3 scenario, you’ll have to insert a Netflix disc in order to view content, as opposed to the Xbox 360 method, which has Netflix built right in to the dashboard. No firm date has been announced just yet, but the Netflix streaming disc will be free with the cost of your Netflix subscription.

Wii Deals

Hey guys, just a reminder, the Nintendo dropped in price over the weekend, to $199, down from $249. That’s the first price cut we’ve seen here in North America for the wildly popular console. If you’ve been on the fence, now’s your chance at picking one up. Near me, both a Gamestop and a Target sold out of them this week, so the tactic may prove successful for Nintendo. Amazon does have Wii in stock right now, so go ahead and grab one, if it strikes your fancy.
