A whole new range of possibilities have opened up for Nintendo users with the announcement that the Wii has gone wireless.
Wi-Fi routers will be available for the console, meaning gamers playing on the handheld Nintendo DS will be able to get online via the wireless connection from their Wii.
Also, PC users will be free to take advantage of the wireless connectivity, surfing the web via the new Wii router.
Detailing other features for the router, Stephen Ebert of Electricpig reveals: "As well as a router it has other options. 'Bridge' enables gamers to connect to another router in the house to communicate with your DS and Wii using Wi-Fi, while 'Auto' lets you switch your households network over to the Wii router."
The devices are expected to retail from around £35 to £45 and will first be marketed in China.
