I just bought a Nintendo Wii, and was wondering if Skype can be installed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Currently, the Nintendo wii does not support skype. The only third-party app wii supports is Netflix. On the upside...well sort of a downside now that you've bought the wii... is that Nintendo is supposedly coming out with the Wii U (sometime in 2012) which will have video capabilities and may also be compatible with skype. Hopefully the rumors are true and they'll find a way to make skype compatible with the 'old' wii as well! :cathappy:


Hope I helped, have a wonderful day! :]
