No Wii-kly Update This Week — Enter WiiWare


As promised, WiiWare has finally launched today. Wii owners can now head to the Wii Shop Channel and start downloading any of the six previously announced launch titles. With the launch of WiiWare, there won’t be any releases on the Virtual Console today, but the normal Wii-kly Update schedule will resume next week.

Only one of the six launch games matches the releases that Japan saw when WiiWare launched over there, so there’s a good chance you don’t know much about several of the games. That’s where Game|Life comes in, as they’ve posted a WiiWare launch guide which should be able to help you decide how to spend your Wii Points.

Be sure to come back and let us know what you think of the service and any games you buy.

I have to free up some space on my Wii to download all this stuff….that is my only gripe about the Wii…..lack of internal drive space….. :mad:

That’s far from my only gripe, but it’s certainly one of them.

This could be potentially awesome. If they do it right.
Will people be able to recommend these games on that new nintendo channel on the wii? Cause I know I won’t be spending much money on a virtual console game until I know it is worth it.
