To be honest i am waiting for the inevitable price crash of the Wii.
I have never paid for a nintendo system until usually 2 years after it's release (except for the SNES) by which time most of the top games are down in price as is the system.
The funny thing is its the console i play with the most and for the longest time so hence i get my moneys worth out of it, i still play mario kart on my gamecube and n64, also ocarina was a game i went back to after getting bored of my ps2.
I must confess to being a nintendo fan boy of old but circumstances always prevent me from jumping on board as soon as the newest sytems are released, (usually a lack of funds)

you wont see a price crash of the wii any time soon,its already cheap and it sells like hot cakes which also prevents it going down in price.

Nintendo's WiiWare service is now LIVE in Japan.

Like a Star @ heaven Click here for a rundown of both the service launch, and of each of the debut games.

The WiiWare service is currently slated for May here in Australia.

Nintendo Announces WiiWare Launch for Australia



Nintendo’s new game download service for consumers and developers


Melbourne Australia, 20 May, 2008 - Now the Wii Shop Channel offers Wii™ owners more, with today’s launch of WiiWare™.

WiiWare is a new game download service, accessible via the Wii Shop Channel, where users can download a variety of new games in exchange for Wii Points. The Wii Shop Channel is free to access and is where WiiWare and Virtual Console games can be downloaded.

Whereas Virtual Console allows consumers to download classic games, WiiWare offers brand new titles, and is also an opportunity for video game developers to create new games for Wii. Developers, no matter how big or small, will be able to create new downloadable games to be sold through the Wii Shop Channel. Changing the way developers create Wii games and how players access them, WiiWare will make it possible for smaller, creative titles to take centre stage. The combination of low development barriers and unique game experiences, through use of the Wii remote, will enable developers to try new ideas with lower risk in a quicker, more creative and affordable way.

WiiWare games will come from celebrated developers such as Square Enix, creators of FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a King™; as well as up and coming developers such as Frontier, creators of the unique platform adventure Lost Winds™, and other independent developers with great game ideas.


The first WiiWare games available include:

Lost Winds™
Star Soldier R
Dr. Mario & Germ Buster™
Toki Tori Take 2
TV Show King
FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a King™


WiiWare also empowers consumers to determine with their Wii Points which games have the ability to become the next big thing. Consumers will assist in the creative process as their choices will directly determine the success of current projects and direct the plans for future ones.

There will be something for everyone on WiiWare with a wide range of games from varying genres, concepts and price levels.

A broadband internet connection is required to access WiiWare.
So far I've downloaded Dr Mario & Germ Buster... Very Happy

Here's links to the respective profile pages for each game on WiiWare World, with full details, prices, and reviews for each game.

- Lost Winds™
- Star Soldier R
- Dr. Mario & Germ Buster™
- Toki Tori Take 2
- TV Show King
- FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a King™

I checked out all of Dr Mario & Germ Buster's game modes last night, and it's pretty solid.

HEAPS of different game modes, and while Germ Buster may look like a gimmicky version of the original game, it's actually a lot of fun, and full of it's own strategies.

The ability to send a multiplayer demo version of the game to anyone on your Wii Friends List is a welcome addition too (I haven't tried this feature yet).

In all, I'd say that if it was 200 points ($3) less it'd be a must have, but at 1000 points ($15), it's pushing it a little.

Hi,

I'm looking for 2 Official Gamecube Controllers. Super Smash Brothers Brawl will be here soon, and I'd like another two for when mates come over. I don't mind if they're used, just as long as they're not greasy from eating chips and playing at the same time Razz

I don't really have anything to trade, so I'll buy them off anyone who's willing to part with two.

If no one has got any, are there places other than ebay where I can score some for a decent price?

Thanks, hope to hear from someone Smile

^ Nintendo Japan released a new Wii-themed GCN controller with a 10 foot long cable.

Compatable with any GameCube/Wii, and a decent price.
