Freaking Sweet.. there is a store in my town that rents wii games so i just technically got about 100 wii games

Chrisny853197d ago

if this works, looks like wii is gonna become the new dreamcast.

Evocation3197d ago

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. :/

LightofDarkness3197d ago

Meh, my Wii's been chipped for over a year now. I won't even download the games any more.

blind-reaper3197d ago


how many "moms" actually buys a lot of games?? so it is irrelevant

BLuKhaos3197d ago (Edited 3197d ago )

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).

ThanatosDMC3197d ago

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.

N4g_null3197d ago

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. ;)

qohelet3197d ago

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

SpoonyRedMage3197d ago

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.

Kwertie3197d ago

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?

ChickeyCantor3197d ago

Have a bubble, its exactly what i thought.

G4drake3196d ago

i believe nintendo is already working on how to stop that
