Nintendo says 100 WiiWare games in development

No plans for demos or a long-term Wii storage solution

Senior project developer Tom Prata said 100 new WiiWare games are incoming, though Nintendo has no plans for demos or a long-term Wii storage solution.

"There are about 100 games in development for WiiWare at various stages of completion," Prata told IGN in an interview published on Friday. But gamers won't be able to demo said downloads before buying, much like Xbox 360 and PS3 owners often can.

"We do not intend to have a 'try-before-you-buy' model that requires developers to create demos," Prata said. "There are a variety of places to learn more about WiiWare games such as the Nintendo Channel where consumers can find game information for WiiWare together with retail Wii products, Virtual Console and DS games."

On the subject of Wii's limited 512MB internal storage space, Prata maintained: "Consumers have the option of either deleting the game and downloading it again for no additional Wii Points, or transferring the game from Wii to external SD memory card."

Previously, Nintendo has likened the file management and limited storage space of Wii to that of a refrigerator, suggesting gamers should "pull something out and put something back in" when software isn't being used.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
