    Well Europe will have WiiFit end of April, but I'm more interested in when they plan to give us WiiWare.

    Wiifit in Europe first??? Wow. The same was the case for Endless Ocean. It seems that they release the novelty games in Europe first.

    STRANGE!!!!

    There are already confirmed a Final Fantasy Cristal Chronicles game, some kind of "Pokemon Ranch" game were you can use your Mii to play with your pokemons or something, a plataform game called Eternity's Child that is looking really good (http://kotaku.com/357661/eternitys-child-l...sounds-prettier).. and I think that are also some indie games annouced..
    There are also some rumors that Sam & Max might be released via WiiWare.. anyway, we can expect some good things from here.. Indie developers with nothing to lose making some creative fun games for the Wii.. that's what I'm expecting..

    Ahh, that sounds exciting - I thought it would just be a load of bad downloadable small minigames

    OOOHNOO!!! There is no approval by Nintendo necessary for wiiware titles [​IMG] Yikes! Let the shovelware floodgates open. Plus, what's the deal with the May unveiling? We were all under the impression WiiWare was to be a spring thing. May's more of a summer thing. Whatever.... Glad it's finally coming, though.

    I don't know.. I think "shovelware developers" can win more money selling games on discs. Nintendo is saying that WiiWare games will cost as much as the VC games and people who buys shovelware are mostly people that are not used to download games, specially on consoles. Well.. only time will tell..

    So far Wiifit sounds a good idea. The only way nintendo can really fail is if the wiifit board eats batteries or is overpriced.

    WiiWare comes out on my birthday [​IMG]

    Really looking forward to that Pokemon Farm game, and the Final Fantasy game as well.
    I'm sure they're going to be pretty expensive to purchase though [​IMG]
