    Think We Can Put Roms Onto Virtual Console?

    Do you think there will be any hack to put roms from the internet into the virtual console? I'm not talking about ripping Nintendo off but getting games onto there like Golden Eye and Perfect Dark that the big N dont have the rights too?

    I seriously doubt it. They probably have some sort of check to see if you've got a legitimate copy of the ROM. They did say a while back that ROM's will not be able to be transfered to a different Wii console. That being said, I'm sure SOMEBODY will come up with a way to mod the Wii. But having multiplayer Goldeneye and Perfect Dark over a hacked ROM would not be possible because (as I understand it), Nintendo servers merely connect one Wii to another (P2P network style). This means that the server itself has to recognise which game you're playing to connect you up with players running the same game - and if it's illegal (which it definately will be), Nintendo won't support it from their end.

    Hope that makes sense. Still, whilst Goldeneye and Perfect Dark were amazing games, they weren't the only amazing games on previous Nintendo systems.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    I think that within weeks of the Wii release, we will see exploits for virtual console, and for external drives / storage.

    I'm sure that Nintendo will do what they can to prevent that. Plus with a 24hour connection to the big N's servers i'm sure they will be scanning to find out if anyone is using things they shouldn't be.
    When I read about the evils of drinking I gave up reading.

    sure they can try to stop hacks. but if there are enough dedicated hackers they will give nintendo a headache, and yeh, i think the VC will be hacked in no time. maybe im underestimating nintendo, i hope so because nintendo is the greatest and shouldnt lose anything

    I agree, for a while it will probably be a big circle. Hackers find a way round copy protection/detection, then nintendo try to find a way around the hack and then the process starts all over again.

    yah, find a way to transfer games to a friends console somehow. maybe each VC code comes with a coding that the wii has and the wii will only play games that match. people will find a way to change it through opening the sd card in their computer and messing around, then copying it onto another sd card with the friend's wii code and then they have it

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.
