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.
