Nintendo releases Movie Service

Yes, that's right: Nintendo has released a Movie On-Demand service kinda like what the PS3 and Xbox 360 have... only in Japan though.

Is it me, or do the Japanese sometimes just do this to torment us? Not only do they get Japan-exclusive games, but now only they get cool stuff like this too. I can just imagine Satoru Iwata rolling around in his big pile of money, laughing at all of us.

Or, they could just be using Japan as a test market for all of this.

If it does come to America, it could mean the beginning of Nintendo trying to catch up to Microsoft and Sony. And if doesn't, it could just be the Japanese keeping all the good stuff for themselves again.
