Iwata: Nintendo considering Wii to DS video-on-demand


During an interview with the Wall Street Journal (registration required), Nintendo president Satoru Iwata hinted that the company's Wii no Ma Channel, intended to bring video-on-demand to its latest console, may be extended to allow video content transfers to Nintendo DS for viewing on-the-go.

"If the Wii and the DS are connected, it should be possible to download video through the Wii and take it with you on the DS," Iwata told the Journal, explaining that, "When the service begins, you'll see how we're going to do it differently in a Nintendo-like way. There are a lot of on-demand video services, so there's no reason to do the same thing, so we're going to do something different."

Iwata also indicated an overseas version of the service could happen, saying, "We'll start the service in Japan, and if it does well, we'd like to take it overseas."
