I remember the days when video game consoles were for playing video games. Now even the wimpiest console is a full-on computer, capable of storing data and accessing the Internet and even ordering Netflix. Netflix has just announced a partnership with Nintendo. Starting this Spring (NYT) Wii owners will be able to order movies through, or stream movies from, Netflix via their console.

This service will, of course, require a broadband Internet connection and at least a $9/month subscription service. If you pay for their DVD-by-mail service, you qualify for the online service at no additional cost. Customers will need to install a free software disk on their Wii first, however. The fact that the Wii is not powerful enough to handle HD videos has renewed speculation that a Wii HD will hit sometime this year.
