Nintendo Channel is Really a Spy

Wii Channel
If you own a Wii, you probably know that the Nintendo Channel went live in the U.S. yesterday. You probably got all excited and messed with it all night, right. Yeah, it’s a lot of fun.

There’s one problem though. It spies on you. You won’t even notice it, but it will note your gaming setup and console configuration s and it’ll report everything back to Nintendo. This includes TV preferences, daily playing habits, WiiConnect24 settings, and more.

It’s a little weird, but if you want to keep playing those demos on your DS, you have to leave the “information exchange” on. I wonder if there’s a little camera hidden in the sensor bar that records you too.
