The nintendo Wii can play PC games

Yes, that's right, Nintendo fans can start laughing at Xbox, and PS3 owners.You can now in fact mod your Nintendo Wii to play PC games. Of course it comes with the risk of never being able to use the actual Wii interface ever again. The basic idea is that you can fit the parts of your PC into the case of a Wii. Technically its not a Wii anymore, but hey, who's going to know? Now all you got to do is put up the Wii interface as your desktop, invite a few friends over, throw in Crysis, and amaze them for life. (Wii)

Since the wii can already output better graphics than the 360,i'm not surprised
Captain_Sony  +   2457d ago
Hmm I cant agree with that because the 360 has had many games that look superior to the PS3 and your statement also implies its more powerful than PS3, especially when games like GTA4 run at 720p on 360 and only 640p on PS3. It's sad that in your attempts to make one console look bad, that you also make your chosen console look bad, but whats even sadder is you do not even understand you are doing it.

taking the Wii components out to swap in PC components is not getting the Wii to play PC games. So, no. The Wii cannot play PC games. Misleading title and lame story. All they did is swap cases. Not very interesting or useful. I don't think anyone would be stupid enough to believe that headline.

For their next trick...they should show the step by step process of how they can turn an ordinary sock into a sock puppet.

You're too funny...

You can do this with PS3 and Xbox as well.

The question is

Actually you can play some PC games on PS3 for real without swapping the parts.

This has got to be the stupidest article ever
SaiyanFury  +   2457d ago
Umm...yeah...sure. No doubt the Wii has games with decent performance, they don't compare with even a mid-range PC's performance graphically. My PC can play Crysis at a resolution of 1680x1050 with 2xAA and I get a framerate that varies between 30-40 FPS. The Wii at the same settings would completely choke. If you're wondering I have a Core 2 Duo OC'd to 3.5GHz, 4GB RAM OC'd to 933MHz, a 9800GTX video card, a Soundblaster X-Fi soundcard and a 22inch Samsung 226cw monitor. Sorry, but the Wii would not be able to play Crysis. Especially since it's hardware isn't designed to play HD games and the hardware isn't exactly up to date with the current HD consoles. Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 would have a harder time running Crysis at very high resolutions compared to a high powered PC. The Wii simply doesn't have the number crunching power necessary to run the game.

Complete waste of time... Someone never bothered to read the article and wasted their time with a post that is pointless when applied to whats said in the story.

Let them have that one because that the only way any Wii game will look as good as a game for 360 and ps3 lol

Why would someone want to do that? It's an interesting PC mod I guess.

Misleading title...

But the wii case is pretty nice looking, It would make a nice blu-ray player

Cardboard boxes can be turned into PC's as well. I read the first two sentences in this story and was done.
DanteLinkX  +   2457d ago
I wonder....
If I take out 360 guts and put ps3 guts inside, THAT WOULD TOTALLY make teh RRoD die right? or is it teh box that is cursed? who knows?

This story is full of #$%@%@#
A 360 and Ps3 (case) can play PC games too if the guts are taken out and replaced with a



Misleading title please everyone report this story.

You know what would be better?
Putting a PC under the table where the Wii is and just say the Wii is doing it, which is basically what you're doing anyway.
