@andyutd97. Nintendo’s next game console, the Wii U, is months away from launch, but its touchscreen controller is already turning heads — and The Daily has learned that Nintendo plans to implement a full-blown app store for the system.

Nintendo currently maintains repositories that act as “light” app stores: The DSi Shop for its portables, and the Wii Shop for its current console. Most of its apps are games and basic utilities like Mario Calculator. The Wii U’s as-yet-unnamed store will go far beyond this, proffering a wider variety of apps, said a person familiar with the matter.

Wii U owners will be able to use apps that operate on the Wii U itself, such as MLB.TV, and others that run independently on the Wii U’s controller. Given its tablet-like design and 6.2-inch screen, it’s not hard to imagine being able to check email, browse the Web, post to social networks and even get some gaming in.

It’s unknown whether Nintendo plans to monetize its app store with a points system, which it currently uses for WiiWare and DSiWare, or with a more Apple-like pay-to-play system.

Hope for it now.

Unlocked everything for Smash 3DS!

Guess the author of that article has never heard of the 3DS eShop...

I honestly kind of hate the Apple "App Store." I don't really like any of the applications on it, either. :I

Nintendo - Where even first person shooters ooze creativity.

I hope it does involve sales: We did miss that on Wii and DS, and still do on 3DS.. Also, the shopping interface needs to be easy to navigate through and have maybe user reviews about software, et cetera..

eShop is quite a great portal, this kind of interface and different levels of intregration with public social networks and nintendo contacts could made a very nice place to be.

I sort of hope it's named uStore. Or at least something less generic than Wii U Ware.

I'd be extremely happy with the e-Reader type function, stocked with digital comics, mags, guides, books and the like, that has been rumoured to be coming to the Wii U. If it does happen, I hope we get some kind of subscription option for the relevant ones. :D
