Nintendo has teamed up with Fujifilm to offer a photo service straight from the Wii console. The Wii Digital Print Channel allows users to upload their photos from an SD card, and from there order customized prints, photo books, business cards and more. The physical order would then be shipped back after processing.
Currently the service is offered only in Japan, but it is expected to roll out to other countries soon.
With the Xbox 360 offering Netflix movies, and now with the Wii allowing photo processing, we can see how the battle for the living room is starting to take place. And interesting to note that a home multimedia PC, despite being more than capable, is not even in the running. It is all about convenience and ease of use, apparently.
