    WiiWare was announced sometime this year from Nintendo. It's basically an actuality of what Nintendo said they would do for original content on the Wii Shop Channel.

    It will let indie developers make simple games on the Wii to sell on the Wii Shop Channel, through the Wii Ware section (in the UK, Wii Ware is called Wii Software). Nintendo will check the games themselves for bugs and they will release it onto the Channel. It's a great oppurtunity for small budget companies (which can be anyone who has received at least 1 Wii dev kit from Nintendo) to become successful if many people download their game. And because of the cost of games this gen becoming expensive, even big developers/publishers can release unique, creative games without fearing bankruptcy or severe losses, like what happened with Okami and Glover Studios.

    Hope that helped. ^_^

    It could be Channels, like the Metroid preview - but the majority will be original downloadable games.

    Go to the Wii Shop Channel, and instead of the US channel showing the Wii Ware area, us Europeans have Wii Software. It says that on ONM too. :)
