First off, I recently read there will be a new Wii released 3rd quarter 2010. So I'm doing a little research now. I'm not a serious gamer by any means. Don't really care for the run around and shoot everybody stuff. I actually own an original NES with all the Mario Bros games. That's more my style. So that is why I'm leaning towards the Wii. Plus the controller (nunchuck) is really awesome. Did someone say "Bowling"?
So, I'm wondering what sort of internal storage does the current Wii system come stock with? I.E. how many GB?
Also, what is the typical price of games that you can purchase from the online store? I know you prepay for "points" to purchase games.
Is every game available in a store also available for purchase directly to the Wii (or SD card)?
Can you purchase or rent movies too? How much do these generally cost? Are there a lot of titles available?
Is it very easy for your modems/routers to detect the Wii? I own an older modem but a fairly recent D-Link router. Works flawlessly with my MBP.
If I was to purchase a game or movie and store it on an SD card, could I take that card to my brother's house and use it on his Wii? Or are they system-specific?
Any comments on using the web browser via Opera on the Wii?
Thanks for reading all my questions!
