Nintendo's Wii Games Channel

After the successful launch of the Wii news channel (check out link for article and screen shots) the web is filled with speculation that Nintendo will be offering a video games channel soon.

The channel would consist of gaming news and also a variety of original games (i.e. not classics as already offered) made by an array of independent developers.

The British magazine turned website Computer & Video Games, took the liberty of contacting Nintendo in order to confirm the rumour and this was their response.

"Nintendo has developed a programming system that will allow small independent developers to make games for Wii download service. We cannot confirm at this time in what format the new content will be delivered, but in the future there will be original games available for download through the Wii Shop." The idea is great, and as long as the games are good that's one channel we'd tune into.
I'll keep you guys updated as developments arise.

Thanks CVG and Gizmodo!
