2011 is expected to be an awesome year for gaming. Games have infused into our culture and its easy to understand why: they are a stress-reliever. Not only that, but with the Wii and Kinect from Xbox, they are becoming more interactive and good for the entire family. Some of my best memories as a kid was when the family got together and played board games. Even though the technology is much fancier, gaming together as a family offers the same results for your kids.
Wii owners can download the new Netflix disc-free streaming update from the Wii Shop Channel. Up until now, Netflix viewing through the Wii needed a special Netflix disc. This update adds Netflix as a menu option on the Wii Menu. Previously, the only console which had disk free streaming of Netflix was the XBox 360.
Sony’s Playstation 3 also requires a disk, but an update is expected to be released sometime today to allow disk free streaming.
You still need a Netflix subscription in order to take advantage of the streaming. Subscriptions start at $8.99 a month.
