The Nintendo Wii is set to get a Video On Demand service this December, called みんなのシアター Wii / Wii Theatre for Everyone, and developed by Fujisoft, with anime and movies to be available via streaming download. Each episode is projected to cost from 100-400 Wii Points (or ¥100-400), and the WiiWare itself another ¥500.
The service might more appropriately be called a “rental” service, since it looks as if the files will only be viewable for 72 hours after purchase. The format will be standard MP4, so it looks as if their promises of “DVD quality” visuals will be possible, although it is not clear what exact quality the offerings will be.
As you might expect from Nintendo, they are emphasising family friendly and children’s programming, so expect plenty of Kanokon to feature.
i thought it was pretty cool
then i read it could be just a rental =___=
well,for movies it seems allright,but for animes /=
if they are one price for more then one anime,then thatd be better
but who cares,Japan gets all the good stuff and America doesnt care about anime
