i'd like to post two quotes from the casual games mailing list.

a)
somebody who has a friend, that has a friend, that works on wii, tells:
> a wii dev kit costs $1,995.

b)
somebody looked at the official website and posted:


Some public Wii devkit pricing info can be found on the WarioWorld site;

#4. Software Development Kits: Approximate development costs range from $2,500 to $10,000, depending on the size of your team. Financial stability is expected by approved developers in order to purchase the necessary development equipment for your project


Pure speculation, but I imagine that some of the related terms might be changed if applying strictly to WiiWare (for example: #1 Developer Qualifications).
