Plucked from Nintendo's brain trust and tucked into the tail end of MTV's recent interview with Reggie Fils-Aime is the latest Wii channel concept: Nintendo Power
. "We have a tremendous amount of old Nintendo Power
content ... that we could present to consumers," Reggie told MTV
The interview (the one where Reg dodges the "Where's Metroid?" question
) doesn't delve further into the thought, leading us to believe the digital archive is a ways from fruition. Still, coupled with Virtual Console, a back catalogue could provide a valuable resource for those digging around for tips and strategies -- or just general information about games of yesteryear. And, of course, Nintendo is never one to underestimate the nostalgia factor, always eager to find another familiar
to resell to old-timers -- that's assuming the archive would be pay-to-view. Would you subscribe (again)?
