Wiibrew: It’s Not a Beer or New Type of Jewish Person

I’m still not real familiar with the Wii Homebrew scene, but it looks like a fairly interesting community for Nintendo’s next-gen console.  I think it’s a collection of game developers that make fairly simple, yet addicting games and apps for the Wii.  By the looks of things, I think you can just download these games and apps and then run them on your Wii, a la some slight tweaks and hacks to the OS.

Wiibrew is a Wiki community and Wii Channel that focuses on creating and sharing these applications.  If I was more of a Wii fan I’d look into this topic a bit more, but for now I’ll spend my extra time thinking of ways to make money without having a real job.  For those of you that are interested on downloading Wii Homebrew games I’ve included a How-To video below.

First you’ll want to read this guide on how to get the Homebrew Browser on your Wii’s SD card, so you can then use it to download apps.  This is not the same thing as the Homebrew Channel, but can be integrated with a little help from your resident geek.  The process looks fairly straight forward if you have a little bit of technical know-how.  If you get it working let us know how things pan out.


This whole Homebrew stuff for the Wii actually seems really cool.  I’m a big fan of free, and it looks like most of these games and apps are just that.  Hopefully, one of you D.E.B.’s get off your ass and try this out.  Come one, spread your wings and geek!  You’ve been converted to Wiibrewism…
