Here's the rumor: Ninteno's Wii U, which should be coming sometime this year, will feature an online app store that offers more than just games. The Daily reports via an unnamed source that some apps will live on the console while others will be meant for the tablet-like control device.
No other details were provided, but the basic fact of the Wii U including some kind of app store seems like a no-brainer. Consoles are already jam-packed with content-adding apps of various types, and the Wii U's tablet controller offers some unique opportunities that wouldn't otherwise fit on an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
It's tough to put any stock in a rumor, but this one holds more water than most simply for making complete and total sense. Is it true? We'll find out later this year.
