A disc that never leaves the case can never be scratched. Save your Wii games to an external hard drive with this handy tutorial for speedier and scratch-free playback.
Freaking Sweet.. there is a store in my town that rents wii games so i just technically got about 100 wii games
if this works, looks like wii is gonna become the new dreamcast.
Nah, I doubt a lot of mums/young kids are likely to start doing this so the party games for the wii are safe. However with already bad "hardcore" games sales on the wii, this could really nail the coffin on them. :/
Meh, my Wii's been chipped for over a year now. I won't even download the games any more.
@1.2 how many "moms" actually buys a lot of games?? so it is irrelevant
I just bought a used NDS phat and an aceKard so that means I get to enjoy the DS's entire library without Ninty ever seeing a dime from me(pft like that's going to make a difference lmao).
So get used games, rip it, return used games.... no, i didnt read the article.
@Jonny Drama Wow, there is an actual place that RENTS Wii games? Incredible. What's next, movies you can play at home on your TV screen? Technology is so amazing.
There is no zelda work around any more. This is only for Wiis that already have the home brew on them LOL. What You'll Need * A Wii with the Homebrew Channel installed
This is probably better news than what Nintendo will be announcing at E3. ;)
the levels of hypocrisy are mindboggling : the same people are basically saying -"nintendo sucks and killed gaming" & -"oh cool i can pirate the whole DS/wii library" fuk'n teens
I know, it shows how much people care about the industry but a lot will say "Nintendo abandoned me as a core gamer." and then download all their core games and deprive Nintendo of income.
I think Nintendo have creamed enough income off of people who bought the system. Seriously, it's nowhere near as advanced as the Xbox, yet it costs more. What the hell?
Have a bubble, its exactly what i thought.
i believe nintendo is already working on how to stop that
wii has been getting the best scenerario around. Glad to see it getting so customized.
It would be excellent if it did.
"qohelet - 1 hour ago PM Track Ignore 3 - the levels of hypocrisy are mindboggling : the same people are basically saying -"nintendo sucks and killed gaming" & -"oh cool i can pirate the whole DS/wii library" fuk'n teens" I would turn that around. Nintendo facks the consumer with a lot of shiatware and sells a supercharged gamecube for a premium price (Gamecube at the end costed 69 Euro, if Nintendo brought a motion controller to the Gamecube the games would have been the same...), and now they got facked back a bit.
" Gamecube at the end costed 69 Euro, if Nintendo brought a motion controller to the Gamecube the games would have been the same..." LOL, seriously? GCN was beyond death, marketing the GCN again would have been fatal. Developers were NOT supporting the GCN and the Wii-mote would not have been a standard. It would have been a marketing disaster. There would be no GAMES at all. qohelet is right, People cry "core" games don't sell and blame all the shovelware and MOMS and whatever. Yet here they are openly admitting that they are indeed pirating games. So next time someone cries games aren't selling or developers aren't Motivated to make "core" games, that someone seriously needs to STFU. Pirating is, in the end, hurting the third party developers more. So not sure how "Nintendo" is getting "facked back".
"GCN was beyond death, marketing the GCN again would have been fatal. Developers were NOT supporting the GCN and the Wii-mote would not have been a standard. It would have been a marketing disaster. There would be no GAMES at all. " I am not saying the games would have been made. I was saying the END PRODUCT of the game would have been about the same. There is not much difference between the Gamecube and the Wii besides some overclocking of the CPU&GPU, the only difference is a different case around the hardware and the motion controller. "People cry "core" games don't sell and blame all the shovelware and MOMS and whatever. Yet here they are openly admitting that they are indeed pirating games. " Well, why does Madworld sell 66k and why does Wiifit sell many, many millions?Thats not because of the pirating of games, thats because indeed fat mums, lazy sisters, morons and granny's buy Wiishiit instead of Madworld indeed. The 360 is hacked, yet even with pirated games out there the real games sell, unlike those on the Wii. Thus, don't say its about pirating. Its about the nongamer audience that own the Wii period. "Pirating is, in the end, hurting the third party developers more. So not sure how "Nintendo" is getting "facked back"." Because about the only games worth playing, at least those above 9 out of 10 average are the 1st party Nintendo owned, rehashed IP's like Mario, Zelda, Super Smash Bros, Punch-Out! So if people play the best games most and pirate them most, Nintendo gets facked back. I really hope they will. I hope in the end Nintendo gets its portion of backfiring over delivering a platform that sells shiatware: Wii - 50 games scoring over 8 out of 10 average PS3 - 100 games scoring over 8 out of 10 average Both are out 2.5 years 360 - 140 games scoring over 8 out of 10 average, but out a year longer. Enough proof. Nintendo fanboys are sad dying gamers.
Nice video piratefag. It's guys like him who get homebrew a bad name in as much that all the companies see homebrew is a way to pirate games. That list is obviously downloaded stuff too. Oh yeah, that GUI is fecking ugly too.
While pirating might be against my better judgment... That does look how I'd want my wii to work. I want skins and game lists and all the awesome stuff on that modded wii. Nintendo should take note at least on the customising aspect of this not to mention the convenience of running your wii with an external drive.
with this wii will lose wii
homever since you need to have the homebrew channel, and most brick their wii while they try to install, this will never be 100% garantee to work
