what exactly is wiiware? I heard about it but don't no anything about it
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. ^_^
Yeah I was gonna make a comment but Squiddy kinda just said it al....
So it's one of the best thing that Nintendo could have done to get a good spot in this war.^^
Actually wiiware is wii channels that nintendo releases
wrong, squidy is right, well actually both of you are right realy.
It could be Channels, like the Metroid preview - but the majority will be original downloadable games.
thx for telling me can be locked now
It should'nt be locked, we can use this thread to discuss Wii Ware.
I really can't wait for it, tbh. It could be the channel that we (the hardcore gamer) have al been wishing for.
oh ok then :dance2:

Fells like a Nordic game whit the letter ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¤ in the tittle.
wiiware is a download channel in the wii shop channel, and in europe the name is wii software
Were did you hear it was called Wii Software?
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.
Separate names with a comma.
