SAN DIEGO, Dec. 27 -- The thousands and thousands of people who were lucky enough to unwrap a new Nintendo Wii this holiday
season can now play all their digital music through the gaming device with new technology from MP3tunes -- http://www.mp3tunes.com. Developed by
Rodney Powers for MP3tunes, owners of the Wii can now use the device's controller to wirelessly stream their personal music collections from their own Music Lockers. Music stored in MP3tunes Music Lockers can also be played on the Sony PlayStation 3, Windows Mobile devices, a variety of
Internet radios and more, thanks to the MP3tunes open API (Application Programming Interface).
"The Wii is the latest popular gaming device that, with MP3tunes' technology, actually becomes a home stereo system," commented Michael Robertson, CEO of MP3tunes. "Consumers shouldn't be limited in where or how they enjoy their personal music collections, and we will continue to
announce new ways MP3tunes is fulfilling its vision of giving people access to all of their music, anywhere they go."
MP3tunes is offering free playlists to sideload to the Music Locker for
immediate access on the Wii and other devices. "To demonstrate how simple it is to add playlists to a Locker, we've created, in partnership with CDBaby, a terrific New Year's Eve music set for our customers," commented Emily Richards, President of MP3tunes. "With just one click, this New
Year's playlist is sideloaded to your Music Locker for access on dozens of devices -- with no listening limits." Sideload the playlist to your MP3tunes Locker at http://www.mp3tunes.com/
