(Newser) – Nintendo plans to launch video programming for the blockbuster Wii game console, reports AFP. Players could access original programming online to watch on their TV sets. The service will  be aimed initially at the Japanese market and expand to markets worldwide. Rival Sony already uses its popular PlayStation for online movie sales and advertising, and Wii players can now use their consoles to play games, surf the Internet and shop online.
