The sad part is games might get raised because of this and hard working people that do not steal games get shafted in the end. So this really sucks any way you look at it.

I would love to know why I got a disagree. The only thing I can think of is that the people that disagreed with me like pirated games and like taking things that do not belong to them.

stealing psp games is cool...stealing wii games would be very cool :)

EDIT: and with the very large installed base of wii owners most of whom have no clue about piracy, software sales should be pretty good for Nintendo games which would not lead to an increased price. Every console is plagued by piracy and it rarely affects the software especially if they are successful although their are few exceptions(dreamcast, psp). If anything hardware is positively affected look at the psp's sales the past couple of months and then look at software sales for the system in either case its a win win situation.

Stealing is wrong, period. You should be ashame of youself committing a crime. You broke the law, that's all there is to it. I don't download PSP games eventhough I know how to set things up. If I think it's worth my money, I will buy it. they deserve it.

How come these hackers haven't figured out how to Back up games work with Twilight Hack yet? PSP hackers had it on priority.

I know Gamecube games were backed up using a browser redirect with phantasy star online. psp hacking started with a browser redirect of wipeout (one of the launch titles) not sure of all the stuff they do now.
Wii had a browser redirect of shop channel, which was quickly patched. Not sure how they back up games now, i never really looked into it.

psp hacking apparently was just too easy.

" do not use this to install illegal software"

Well....yeah people will really obey the disclaimer.................

people rip on them for not releasing a hard drive, but if they did...they would rip tons and tons of games, then never connect to the shop channel again. Plain and simple...

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!! !!!!!!!!
