As the Wii
The keyboard support is extended towards the Internet channel as well as the Everybody Votes channel. Apparently, keyboard support is modular for the console – meaning it doesn’t apply to ALL the channels. What’s cool though is that the new firmware update also supports Bluetooth enabled wireless keyboards. All you need to do is attach the dongle to the USB port at the back of the console and you’re ready to go!
Will we be seeing Wiimote + keyboard combo games soon?
On another note, NIntendo is also shipping free Wiimote jackets in the USA and Canada. While it may not be enough to replace those plasma screens that succumb to Wii Sports casualties, at the very least the jackets will protect your $50.00 investment. 🙂
