Wii Flash

December 1st, 2006

I thought the fact that the Wii is including the Opera browser, which is very portable and works amazingly on small screens, was an interesting bonus feature. Then, in passing, I noticed something that changed everything.

It supports Flash. What version I don’t know yet, but it could change a lot of things. Since the Wii is PowerPC-based it’s not too much of a stretch to hope for Flash 9 support since it’s already out for the old PowerPC-based versions of OSX. Then again the Wii might not be powerful enough, so they might be using an older version instead. I don’t have a Wii yet so I’m dependent on the info that leaks out onto the Internet but I’ll find out soon enough.

There’s an interesting article on Wii-based web design here for those interested.

EDIT: There’s an even better article here.
