Back in May, Bethesda Europe managing director Sean Brennan teased that the company would be making a “really big” mature Wii announcement this year. But we actually already know what that title is. A few weeks ago, Bethesda Europe revealed Wheelspin. And even though the game may be of high quality, I’m a bit disappointed to say that Wheelspin is Bethesda’s big surprise for Wii.

“[Sean] was referring to the Wheelspin Wii game Bethesda is publishing in Europe (only) and that is being shown in our booth at GamesCom this week.” – Bethesda VP Pete Hines

There has been a lot of buzz this week surrounding Sony’s Mini service for the PSP over the past few days. In some ways, the program is comparable to DSiWare, but Sony seems to be providing stronger support for developers. But rumor has it that Nintendo will be taking a similar approach.

The biggest improvement to DSiWare will allow developers to release their titles in an easier fashion. There will not be any changes in terms of pricing for content, but Nintendo will still have indirect control due to royalty rates. If, for instance, a developer were to create a game larger than 20MB for 500 points, then there would be a much higher royalty rate than if the size was under the 20MB restriction. Keep in mind that this is still speculation since Nintendo has not officially confirmed anything, though this would be a much welcomed advancement for DSiWare.
