You know, I have been very tempted to pick up a Wii - I know several people who have them, and they all say that it is extremely entertaining.
Nintendo may just have tipped me over the edge.
Reportedly Nintendo has released a game creation kit, allowing independents to develop games for the Wii without having to sell their souls or mortage their homes.
Small developers will have the opportunity to develop games for the Wii and sell them in downloadable form through Nintendo's WiiWare system on the Wii Shop channel. Apparently you start designing the games on a PC, but must complete them on a console.
Apparently Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo America, stated that it will allow independent developers without large budgets to market games and possibly become the next smash hit.
Now who has Wii's in stock....
