Earlier today, Nintendo of Japan launched the "Digicam Print Channel" for Japanese Wii owners, which allows users to order prints of photos from their SD card for 30 yen each. Users can also order Wii-themed photo albums for 1,575 yen, and special Mario-themed photo albums for 2,480 yen.
Sure, all that's cool, but users can also now order business cards emblazoned with their Miis and system friend codes.
Will the Digicam Print Channel make its way to other countries? The Japanese press release seems to mention a worldwide relesae in the future. American Wiis received an update this morning, but no one knows what functionality it adds...
UPDATE:[/color] Nintendo has sent word that the update for American Wiis added "behind-the-scenes support for a new service that has been released only in Japan." I'd say it's coming soon!
Late Monday night your Wii's blue light should have flickered to your delight. With all your might... ah who cares any more.
Anyway, the Wii firmware was updated to version 3.3 on Monday, with the update citing a new feature in the Mii channel: the ability to drag and drop Miis from the Mii Plaza to the Mii Parade, allowing you to store more than 100 Miis.
The update also, somewhat stealthily, kills the Twilight hack, meaning if you don't have the Homebrew Channel installed already and want to run homebrew on your Wii, do that before updating. Fortunately, the update does not appear to disable/delete the Homebrew Channel if you already have it installed. It does, however, make the Wii Freeloader completely obsolete...
Bummer. Check after the break for the full message.
Right about now, your Wii should be lighting up with a message from Nintendo, instructing you to perform a system update. According to Nintendo, this update simply adds a bar along the bottom of the Disc Channel, which either displays the game's title or informs you of a required update. I don't mean to accuse Nintendo of anything, but I also assume this update patches the exploit in Twilight Princess which allowed users to run homebrew...

Those up on their Nintendo news will probably remember a Wii Shop gifting service being announced earlier this year. This update allows you to purchase a VC game to send to a friend - making finding the perfect gift for that gamer a no-brainer! (... rhyme?) From the press release:
Nintendo will make your holiday shopping just a little bit easier. If some people on your gift list have visions of classic video games dancing in their heads, you're in luck. Starting this week, Wii Shop Channel patrons can use a new Gifting feature to send games to other Wii owners with whom they've traded Friend Codes. It's an easy and inexpensive way to give your fellow Nintendo buffs the gift of a classic game—no wrapping paper required. And don't worry about duplication. If your friend already has the game you're trying to give, you'll get a simple message and be bumped back into the catalog to continue shopping.
*cough* I'm sure some of the N+ mods would love a VC game for Christmas *cough*
Once you've downloaded the new Wii Shop Channel, you can use it to download another update from the WiiWare section! This updates the Photo Channel to version 1.1, allowing AAC use and a custom channel icon. From the release:
1) Personalize your Wii Menu by making one of your favorite digital images from an SD memory card as the Photo Channel icon.
2) Photo Channel 1.1 replaces MP3 compatibility with the ability to play AAC files. This new compatibility will work with MP4 audio files in the .m4a format. You can also now choose to have the songs play back in a random order.
*Please note that once the Photo Channel has been updated to version 1.1, the channel will no longer be able to play MP3 format music files. Wii games that currenly have features which use MP3 music files will continue to use the MP3 file format. These Wii games will not be compatible with the AAC files.
Ok, ok. So this isn't the guide on how to catch mew for any Fire Reds, Leaf Greens, Emeralds, Rubies, Saphires, or even the upcomming Daimond and Pearl set. This guide is for the older crowd, the crowd that started the pokemon trend, and the crowd that still has their copies of Blue, Red, and Yellow
In this very easy to follow video you will find the quickest way to obtain Mew without any Gamesharks or Action Replays. This is for the glitch crowd. The non-cheaters who never owned a mew because Nintendo never visited their village, or they did but mom n' pop didn't take them to go get it.
Are you ready? This video shows, without catching the missing no, or 'M' pokemon, taht you can catch mew with no ill-sided effects to your game. No Hall of Fame glitches, nothin'. It all appears to be just a funky fun way to catch Mew. Early on in the game I might add! so for those of you who want to start over, or who have never 'dephiled' any of the steps... go catch that Mew! get all 151![/ALIGN]
