Nintendo Wii will come with Opera browser

Nintendo's next-generation games console Wii (formerly known as "Revolution") will come with the Opera web browser, it has been revealed. This will give users of the Wii the ability to surf the Net, and they will be able to navigate sites via the new Wii remote controller.

"For our Wii console launch in 2006, we required a browser that was fast and secure, with support for the latest standards, including AJAX," said Genyo Takeda, senior managing director and general manager of Nintendo's Integrated Research & Development Division.
Wii is expected to hit the stores at the end of this year.

How do you do it on the PSP or the Xbox/360 ? At least with the Wii you can hope they bundle some kind of hand writing recognition (*cough*pictochat*cough*). You wouldn't be able to have that on any other console. ;-)
