Will the Wii U have an app store?
Rumour has it that the Wii U will feature a “full-blown app store”. Unlike the Wii Shop Channel and the 3DS’s eShop, which focus on games and the most basic of utilities, this Wii U store will feature a “wider variety of apps”. A Major League Baseball app was specifically mentioned as a possibility.
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.
The source of this information remains anonymous, but it’s certainly a tantalizing possibility to consider. It would fall well in line with the other current rumour of eBook-like content coming to the console.
