More IGN Mailbag Tidbits
Matt over at IGN has updated another mailbag. In this issue, Matt addresses the Wii’s online offerings to come like demos, homebrew, and add-ons. Here are the juicy details:
I interviewed Nintendo of America’s George Harrison a couple months back and he said that the company would eventually offer a variety of content on the Wii Shopping Channel, including add-ons and demos. I think Nintendo also wants to nurture a homebrew development scene of some kind. I’d be surprised if we didn’t hear more about all of the above at the Game Developers Conference in March. In the meantime, all I can tell you is that Nintendo’s online network is in its infancy and can only improve over time. Eventually, I’m positive there will be demos for everyone to download and try.
I really hope we hear more at GDC this coming March. If Nintendo started some homebrew development and provided more downloadable content, that could really kick Nintendo’s online service into overdrive. And, being a site dedicated to Nintendo’s wifi network efforts, I can’t wait to see what Nintendo has in store for us.
