Comcast, the nation’s leading residential broadband Internet provider, and video game pioneer, Nintendo, have teamed up to offer an exclusive deal available to new Comcast Triple Play customers. From today until August 17, 2008, those who sign up for Comcast Preferred Plus or Premier Triple Play package* will receive a complimentary Wii™ system, merging together the joy of a super-fun video gaming experience with the power of super-fast Internet speed.

“By connecting to our high-speed Internet, it will be easy for our customers to access all the fun content and features their Wii has to offer online,” said Greg Butz, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Product Development. “The Wii offers something for everyone, so pairing the Comcast Triple Play with the Wii system provides great entertainment value for the entire family.”

The partnership between Comcast and Nintendo will give new qualifying Triple Play customers a free Wii system and it will also allow them to hook up their Wii to Comcast High-Speed Internet for great online experiences:

* Play friends over Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection in games like Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and more
* Surf the Internet on a bigger screen by downloading the Wii Internet Channel from the Wii Shop Channel using Wii Points™
* Visit the Wii Shop Channel to download classic Nintendo games or discover new exciting titles made for Wii

That’s a pretty huge deal that Nintendo just signed with Comcast now!  I could see a TON of people taking advantage of this offer, especially the remaining people in the world without a Wii ; )
