Welcome to Wiimbledon

Don't you think it's slick how the Wii easily connects to your wireless network after you set it up. While the new virtual reality UI on the Wii is fantastic, the big news is the UI combined with the internet. You can see where Nintendo is going with this.

What always made Nintendo the most fun was playing with friends, and the wireless Wii gives way to a whole new world of playing everything from the 8-bit goldies to the new Wii sports games with people across the globe. Nintendo's games, old and new, lend themselves to playing in pairs, in groups, and in tournaments.

Welcome to Wiimbledon. It's not very hard to run Wii Tennis matches asynchronously and keep stats on a central server. I think Ninetendo has this and more in mind, and you get a peek at that through the Mii Parade. Nintendo is making their first play in the a very important arena.

Yes, my Wii name is, much like everyone else's in the family, Ruthii.
