The Nintendo Wii is finally joining competitors to offer movie downloads through the world's leading game console.

Sonic Solutions' Roxio CinemaNow announced today a partnership with Japan's Fujisoft Inc. to deliver Hollywood movies through the Wii in the Japanese market. Instant-streaming downloads will be available through Fujisoft's video-on-demand service "Minna no Theater Wii" (Everyone's Theater Wii), which debuted earlier this year in Japan.

Videogame consoles have become a leading way for consumers to watch movie downloads and streams on their TV sets. Microsoft rents movie and TV show downloads on its Xbox Live, playable through the Xbox 360, and offers Netflix's streaming video service. Sony sells movie downloads through its PlayStation Store, playable on the PlayStation 3.

Sonic, meanwhile, has been aggressively expanding the number of devices on which Roxio CinemaNow is available as it competes with larger competitors iTunes and Amazon Video on Demand. Earlier this month, Sonic announced a partnership with Best Buy to sell downloads on the retailer's Web site and on yet-to-be-named devices sold in stores.

As a bonus, every movie streamed to the Wii will substitute the lead actors with either a chubby plumber or a gorila and you 'll be able to use bongos to fast forward.
