Indie games coming to Wii, later then sooner

According to our contact, the Wii Independent Developer Program is “on hold” until the end of the month, because “the Wii publishers are taking all of the available inventory, and more.” In other words, Nintendo doesn’t have enough kits to cover the demand for all those crappy licensed games, let alone more original work. I’ve confirmed that others heard the same story at D.I.C.E. last week. - Ian Bogost, Water Cooler Games

Nintendo…get those kits out to these guys! This could cause a massive indie boom of Wii only support! These guys were promised kits last month, and now they are getting bumped again. Don’t drive their support away!
