A new service called Knibble is currently on beta test stage. This company founded by CEO Sashi Chimala offers 5,000++ games ready to play off the Internet Channel of your Nintendo Wii. Purchasing the Wii Internet Channel from the Wii Shop will set you back 500 points which is roughly equivalent to $10.00.

Sashi Chimala is the chief executive officer and Knibble Wii Founder. He remarked, “We are very excited to offer Wii users with an entirely new and broad set of games, all easily reached from their Wii console. The success of the Wii has completely opened up the casual gaming market. We are very happy to be a part of it and look forward to the future of online casual games.” [source]

This statement is actually loaded. Chimala is saying that the casual game market can extend to the console industry, allowing developers to create games that can retail for free or for a mere price of $5.00 to $10.00 per game in the future. This market was once a PC-only model but now the Wii has opened the doors to developers eyeing console games (still the casual players at that) for their products.

If you don’t own a Wii, you can point your browser to the same website, and play some of the casual games in company’s beta stage.

Does this give people more reason to buy a Wii? You can basically play over 5,000 new games apart from Wii Sports after the Internet Channel is downloaded — and surf the Internet as well.

I tested Wii when I was in LA. My 11-year-old friend was obsessed with it. Kids these days don’t get enough exercise. The Wii is a great way for them to move away from being thumb-punching couch potatoes.

Thing is, the games are such prototypes. Skeletal characters? It’s like a kid drew a circle, added a head, and submitted it to the Wii developers who turned it into a game.

I’ll wait ’til they come up with better graphics.

i just saw this wii game website on the net, and my mom in law enjoys playing speed solitaire in a flash wii game.

me, enjoyed surfing the web using my wii.

too bad that the wii has a low memory, that some flash content failed to load.
