Finally, You Can Order Pizza With Your Wii



Nintendo just launched a new Wii Channel that beats /pizza. The Demae Channel (Catering Channel) lets users point and pick dinner with the Wii remote.


Categories include pizza, sushi, bento boxes, Chinese food, Western food, and others. Pizza Hut falls in pizza while KFC strangely falls into the “others” group. Once an order is placed users wait for the food to arrive and pay the delivery person in cash, not Wii Points. The service also plans to offer coupons to cut the price of meals.


Similar to the Wii no Ma Channel Nintendo has a third party partner running the Demae Channel. Yume no Machi Souzou Iinkai, a door to door food delivery corporation, is handling the day to day business. Actually, the channel looks like a Wii interface for an existing food delivery website Yume no Machi Souzou Iinkai currently operates. Since the infrastructure is provided by an outside party it might be difficult for Nintendo of America to create a Western equivalent.
