Wii’s Web Brower Gets Set Free

Wii’s Web Brower Gets Set Free

This week, Nintendo announced that its Wii version of the Opera web browser will from now on be free to download. Although this software was initially “free” during its beta-testing, it later became a pay-for option and now it is going back to its roots.

Previously, the company charged $5 in order to use the Wii Channel web browser for anyone who wished to browse the Internet through their console. While some users may opt to swing their Wiimote like a baseball bat out of frustration for its lackluster GUI when using Opera, at least there is some compensation coming.

The latest version is updated to use Adobe Flash Lite version 3.1.

For owners who bought the web browser with their Wii points, the company will compensate by allowing users to obtain a NES game (worth 500 points) for free from the Virtual Console service.

Further details will be announced in October.
