It was the last console to the Netflix craze and its users have a significantly lower online connectivity rate than the PS3 or Xbox 360, but Nintendo's top man in the US is claiming that it's been a success.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said that nearly one million Wii owners have "participated" in the console's Netflix connectivity, reports Gamasutra.
However, the vague term "participation" is mysterious, and Fils-Aime did not expand on what he meant by that.
When it comes to user experience with Netflix connectivity, the Wii is probably the least comfortable, mainly because it is a closed platform and not designed to handle third-party apps like this.
The PS3's process is also cumbersome. Like the Wii, it requires a special Netflix disc to launch a program that enables users to stream any of Netflix's "instant" movies or TV shows. The Xbox 360 was able to build the software into a firmware update.
Regardless, the Wii has a massive installed base. That is, it has historically sold more than the Xbox 360 and PS3 combined, in the US. So if Netflix is attracting just a small fraction of that group, it should be very happy.
