Nintendo Announces WiiWare

Newsweek has a piece up on Nintendo’s WiiWare, which will bring new downloadable games to the system, much like those available through Microsoft’s Xbox Live 360 Arcade.

Skeptics in the gaming community, however, point out that Nintendo’s online offerings to this point have been lacking at best, with an online friend code system that can best be described as “lacking” when compared to the Microsoft service.

That said, fans and critics alike will have plenty of time to argue over predictions of the service’s capabilities as the first games won’t be available until Spring of 2008.
