That's neat and all, but I mean for something that's 480p, it's kinda pointless when I can stream from my other two consoles, or the cable box itself... or an apple TV or something in HD. Or just y'know walk to the rental store. Urgh streaming media sucks on my shoddy internets anyway.

I take it HD wont be available? 
 
In Europe we have Zune for the xbox 360, and I love the service... only thing is the poor selection of movies. There's only like 50. What's surprising though is that 2010 is one of the movies. Which is a fairly unknown movie in itself, but wait - they don't have 2001. I wonder how they pick them :P

Cool I guess, I will probably give it a try to see how it compares to the 360 for me. Probably can't stream HD but my internet blows hard enough it doesn't matter anyway as I have never been able to stream anything in HD from the 360. Might be more stable though, who knows.

I'd hate to be Netflix or Nintendo when the complaints to roll in,  Wireless, streaming video and a slow CPU with little in the way of hardware acceleration for processing said streamed video do a not a good mix make.

It takes 20 minutes to teach a Wii to play DVDs.

i don´t mean the homebrew crap. I want it out of the box or through a firmware update. I shouldn´t be that hard for them to do...
