Second update: Those who downloaded the Wii Internet Browser for 500 points can now receive a free VC NES title (thanks Ronin180!)

Update: Apparently the latest update is for the Ambassador program (earn free VC titles by helping others connect online) in Europe, but again, there are no noticeable changes for North American Wii systems at this point.

A new Wii update is ready for installation – in North America at least. However, the purpose behind the update is unknown at this time. Additionally, the firmware number remains at 4.2 after the download . The DSi Shop is back up as well, although the handheld does not have an upgrade to download unlike the Wii. We’ll update this post with further information as it becomes available.

    There is a change. If you bought the Internet Channel, you can now get a free 500 point NES game.

    Since the last one bricked numerous Wiis, could this be the same thing, only safer? I never updated out of fear and I’d like to know.

    Same here. And I’d like to download the new LostWinds (and heard you have to update for that).
