Nintendo Boosts BT's Wi-Fi Rollout

Posted: 23rd Mar, 2006 By: MarkJ
Gaming giant Nintendo has extended its partnership with wireless broadband operator BTOpenworld, including the rollout of 600 co-branded Wi-Fi Connection hotspots into retailers across the UK and Ireland:

To access the service, consumers need to walk into a store with a Nintendo DS console and any Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection compatible game. The consumer then needs to turn on their console and choose the Wi-Fi Connection option from the game’s main menu.

In addition and to coincide with the release of Animal Crossing: Wild World on Nintendo DS, over 500 of the Wi-Fi enabled stores will also offer anyone the chance to download playable demos of current and upcoming Nintendo DS titles via ‘Download Stations’ attached to their Nintendo DS interactive units for free.

The roll out commences from today and all 607 stores will go live by summer 2006. The hotspots and ‘Download Stations’ will be located in GAME, Gamestation, HMV, Toys R US, Smyths Toys and other selected independent retailers across the UK and Ireland.

The hotspots will provide retailers and their customers with free access to Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection service. More @ netimperative.com .
