It probably doesn't matter to any of the net savvy AusGamers users, but Nintendo have announced today the formerly 500 points costing internet browser for Nintendo Wii, is now available as a free download so you can "enjoy browsing the internet from your sofa", according to Nintendo.

To grab it, just log into the Wii Shop Channel and you'll find it featured for free download.

That's pretty cool; I was always surprised they charged for it. Is it still Opera?

I would quite happily not get my 500 points back if they would upgrade the flash player to be more compatible with the modern internet.

The same thing that happens to everyone who pays full price for something that gets discounted the next day, nothing.

You mean aside from the fact that they got to use it all this time while everyone else didn't?

From what I remember reading it's not Nintendo's or Opera's fault but adobe. Adobe has something against upgrading past Flash 8.

Oh and to answer my own question, from wiki:
Those who had paid earlier would be awarded a free NES game from the Virtual Console costing 500 points at the end of October.

The above should be added to the news article.

Glade nintendo isn't as cold and heartless as some of you are.

I'd be happier if it was the new Opera 10.

Opera 10 is ace. All it needs now is something like AdBlockPlus.

It said something about an updated version of flash in the update note. Can't check because mine loads to a black screen, probably conflicting with some of my homebrew hacks.

I've done the update and during a quick test the updated flash will still not let me view sites like the past shows of Rockwiz from sbs.com.au, youtube.com has always worked for me though, sitting on the lounge watching old comedians is a good way to spend my lunch break.

It did mention the 500 point credit to be spent on a SNES game but I didn't see anything good there.
