[=WiiWare=] is a service from Creator/{{Nintendo}} that allows people to download games to their {{Wii}}. Unlike the VirtualConsole, which lets you play old games from the past, [=WiiWare=] is composed of mostly original titles.

It can be thought of as the Wii's approximate equivalent of the XboxLiveArcade and PlaystationNetwork. Like the Virtual Console, [=WiiWare=] games are added to the roster once a week. Some games were playable online, such as ''[[VideoGame/DrMario Dr. Mario Online Rx]]'' and ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}} Party''. Some games also have [[DownloadableContent extra content that can be downloaded to the game]] for an extra fee, known as [[RevenueEnhancingDevices Pay + Play.]] Much like the other console's digital download services, [=WiiWare=] has spawned some unique titles of its own.

Compare DSiWare.
