Lionsgate president of digital media, Curt Marvis has said that he is hopeful Nintendo will launch its Wii movie store worldwide soon, where it is already a go in Japan.

Over on Casualgaming, Marvis explained that company wishes to sell more film and television properties through videogame consoles and different consoles are better outlets for certain genres.

"I imagine the Wii’s movie store will launch worldwide soon," he told the site. "The essential point is that the game machine is already connected into the TV, and we see it as a major conduit inside the home to bring movies via the internet into the television.

"Our horror and action movies are ideal for the Xbox and PlayStation’s hardcore audience, while the broader audience of the Wii are likely to enjoy our more mass-market properties."
