But by the sound of it you need to know how to program. Usualy what they do is give you information you need to program. They are also called Dev kits. Sometimes they give you a special system usualy 2-3x more expensive than a normal one to use to test your things. No clue how they are doing it on wii because you obviously need to test your stuff also.
    Isn't WiiWare just the icon on the shop channel that lets you download new channels and features like the Internet Channel? I have no idea what you were saying.

    As far as I have read, they are going to/already released a game creation tool whose name is also called "wiiware", similar to the icon which we see where we can download safari, etc.
    Maybe they are going to list this tool also under that icon in future, going by that article.

    Using this tool you can create games, which will get sold in wii shop channel.

    But problem is, i tried contacting nintendo support and they don't seem to respond either yes/no.
    Feels like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

    It isn't just for consumers to use and it won't be available as a download from your Wii. They will give third party developers dev kits so they can make Wii Ware which is just channels that will be available for download from the shop channel. Do you even know how to program? If not then it would be useless to you anyway. Also the Wii uses Opera not Safari.

    In a move that's sure to delight the literally millions of Wii owners out there, Nintendo has announced that it will be offering a development platform which will allow almost anyone to create games that can be downloaded from the Wii Shop Channel. Like Microsoft's XNA Game Studio Express before it, the so called WiiWare service gives at-home developers the tools to create content playable with those magical controllers, meaning that many of the strange and disturbing concept titles we've seen may actually come to fruition starting next year. Since no one wants to sit around coding for free (except for, you know, the entire open source community), Nintendo will allow devs to sell their wares to the public -- "reducing barriers to entry," as the economists say, while giving gamers a potentially endless source of cheap and innovative content. Just remember, Nintendo, when you gift the masses with the power to create, you're definitely not gonna like all of their creations.
