Wii + Warp Pipe = Del.icio.us Tabbed Browsing 46

An anonymous reader writes "The folks at Warp Pipe have developed a simple yet useful tabbed browsing interface for the Wii with del.icio.us bookmark integration which makes browsing on the Wii more efficient until the fully realized Opera build hits later next year. The web application does not require registration, this video overviews the interface and feature set in this early release."

    But the difference here is that it is by no means a major selling point, or something very much hyped by Nintendo. The fact is, all the concentration in both marketting, and I'm guessing, to a certain degree, in design, was in game oriented development. The problem is that Sony is trying to sell there system as "Not just a video game console", which is sort of a slap in the face of the gaming community. Also, one also has to wonder whether the high concentration in additional features could have taken away from other areas.

    At least, publicly, Nintendo's approach has been: here's a great videogame console, and we put a lot of thought into making it fun and intuitive... and oh, btw, we're throwing in a web browser with it. Whereas Sony has been yelling and screaming, using the additional, non-game related features as an excuse whenever people heckle them about the price, as in:

    Press: What are you doing selling a $600 game console?
    Sony: Damnit, it's not JUST a game console, it does other things too like play HD video and can surf the web.

    It's all in the presentation, and Sony leaves you with an uneasy feeling that game-related content (including pricing it like a game console) was sacrificed a bit to make room for this other stuff. THAT'S what concerns us.

There's no future in time travel.
