    I am curious, with most of the popular emulators working on the Wii why use VC?

    I havn't kept track of the latest releases but I know that the SNES NES Genesis and GameBoy Advance emulators run on the Wii now. Wouldn't you rather play the original unedited version of the game than pay 5-10$ for a limited selection from the VC store?

    The emulators do not include the ROMS so you have to add them to the ISO before burning them.

    I found out that some N64 games also work using the Zelda emulator, mostly only Nintendo titles though. I havnt tried N64 games but Nes/Snes/Genesis worked well.

    One limitation is that you can only have 1000 roms per folder, so if you plan to have a complete list of roms you will have to create subdirectories.

    You mentionned "burning," does that mean you need some sort of Wii mod ie. WiiKey and then burn the ROMs and emulator to a DVD in order to play these ROMs on the Wii???

    No you dont need a modchip. They will work with one but you can use the Gamecube ActionReply memory card backdoor if you want to preserve your warranty.
