Wii Video Service Also DS Compatible

BOOM widget 58340Nintendo's previously-announced Wii on-demand video service planned will also be compatible with the portable Nintendo DS, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Speaking on the ad-supported video service, Iwata said "If the Wii and the DS are connected, it should be possible to download video through the Wii and take it with you on the DS".

Iwata also teased that "when the service begins, you'll see how we're going to do it differently in a Nintendo-like way," explaining "there are a lot of on-demand video services...so we're going to do something different."

Though the service is currently planned only for Japan, asked whether it will stay that way, Iwata noted that "if it does well, we'd like to take it overseas."
