WSJ: “Making it personal on Nintendo’s Wii”
Our friends over at MiiPlaza.net just got a great article written up in todays (3/16/07) Wall Street Journal.Ã‚Â This comes just after one day of WiiNintendo.net getting a large write up in The New York Times.
David Merrill, a 28-year-old graduate student in Somerville, Mass., struggled recently with a popular feature on Nintendo Co.’s Wii videogame console. Try as he might, he just couldn’t get the game character he created, called Mii, to look like himself.
Frustrated, Mr. Merrill turned to the pros. He shelled out $5 to a Web-based service called Mii Station (www.miistation.com), run by a Tokyo entrepreneur, which creates look-alike game characters for Wii based on photos. Three days later, he received a Mii with spiky hair and a really big smile that he says pretty much captured his essence.
Both articles are really positive about the Wii and both talk about two completely different things, this positive exposure for the Wii should really help in sales and over all interests.
