MP3tunes Announces Custom Technology for Wii, Plus More Music for New Year's

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/

Or you coul just use photo channel

The Photo Channel doesn't play mp3s anymore, it's an interesting alternative, but there are other services that allow one to do more than just play music. It's interesting though in the fact that if you store your files on their site then you could go to someone's house and play your tunes through their Wii, but I don't see that happening. Especially once February pulls in. It's nice to see people making stuff though, work that Wii!

If you want MP3 on your photo channel, then simply downgrade it.

That works if your Wii shipped with Photo Channel 1.0. But for those with newer Wiis, shipping with 1.1, that doesn't appear to be an option.
