A Stroke of genius: Welcome to the Mii Channel

For all of those who do not know, Nintendo's forthcoming console, Nintendo Wii, will be featuring built in programs or "channels" that will incorporate a variety of different aspects and expand on the idea of what a game console will be. I was recently pondering the possibilities of these channels and I have taken a real liking to what is known as the "Mii Channel".

With the Mii Channel, gamers will be able to "Create 3D caricatures of your friends and family with the Mii Channel". Let's think about that for a minute. What Nintendo has told me is that in 2 months time, I will be able to duke it out in a virtual world against my friend or even my BOSS! I will be able to take it to the courts against my virtual enemies and have a blast doing it. The ability to put yourself and others in games is, dare I use the word, revolutionary. It will be just as fun making a Mii as it will be playing with one.

Can you imagine the heights that the Mii channel alone could reach? I could be staring in my own game! I could be brawling it out with all of the characters from Super Smash Bros. Imagine the endless innovations that this channel could bring. What other system offers these kinds of innovations? Only Nintendo my good friends.

This is just the beginning also. There are numerous other channels that will allow the casual gamer to really delve deep into Wii goodness. The Weather channel, The picture channel and the forecast channel just to name a few. I think that this could really prove to be the hidden success of the Nintendo Wii and truly make the system stand out from the competition. It is going to be a great year gamers, are Wii ready?!

Don't forget ourfirst podcast!! (itunes has been acting funny but we hope to get it up there in the near future)
