    #1, it appears the "Globe" view in the Forecast Channel actually uses real constellations. Link

    #2, Madden 07 apparently uses the Forecast channel to determine the Weather for the games played Link


    Some pretty cool stuff. Props to Nintendo.

    That's really sweet, and I don't even like the Madden games.

    When I was playing Animal Crossing on the DS I would thin how cool it would be if it wasn’t just the same time in the game as real life but also the same weather so it’s pretty cool that there is a game that dose that now.

    Another thing I though would be cool is if in racing games, or GTA is if you could link up to radio station web sites that have streaming audio and have you local real life radio station in the game.

    Or a station from the location you're racing on, if it's supposed to be a real place?

    in Madden, what happens when there's a storm...will the (season) game get canceled (which would be cool).

    and with this news...Animal Crossing will be even better yet. sucks that Oregon likes to rain a lot.

    Ya, I know. Aside from Wii Sports and racing games I'm just not a sports game fan, but I want to rent this game after I get Wi-Fi just to see this feature.

    Another undocumented feature is that you can spin the globe and plan your next vacation around where the cursor points to.
