I finally got around to turning on my flashing Wii Saturday to run a few updates. I have to say, the Wii is a little faster launching channels after the update (one of the supposed fixes), but other than that, the new shopping channel and the tacky clock are not that thrilling. One thing that is pretty exciting though is limited keyboard support!
I have yet to try this, but it sounds pretty interesting. Though, I don’t really know why they didn’t enable this in the Internet Channel. While it is nice to be able to search names of Virtual Console games when shopping, I would have much rather preferred to be able to type in web addresses and make blog posts (without having to point at the letters!).
The other big update was a ‘Metroid Prime 3’ Channel, that really only shows some videos. While the videos were nice, I still think it was a weird way to present this new game. We should get a free level or a sample of game play!
