    from what i see right now, shopping channel is not offering that many games. plus, i own a 100s of NES/SNES/N64 games in total... it kind of sucks to have to buy them again. i wish there was a way to submit a serial number or something to prove you own the game then download for free... or an ability to play roms.

    I would just like to ask why you would want to buy all these games that you already own? Isn't that just a big waste of money?

    I already own plenty of NES/SNES/Cube/GBX games, however I would buy them again as my consoles are stored in the loft. The Cube games I would re-purchase if they were controlled by the WiiMote.

    theres no emulators ported for the wii so u cant play the roms..and no homebrew yet.. but theres emulators ported for the gamecube since the wii are able to read gamecube files .. if u have the right files and right equipment its a simple hack.. heres a how to site below .. its been out for over a month already.. so far all my emulation and homebrew has been on the original xbox.. i cant wait til what the wii can do..

    yeah you can dude,

    you need the SD adaptor for the gamecube and a gamecube action replay.

    go to www.codejunkies.com to get them

    The only reason why it is illegal to run ROMS and emulators is because there is no proof that you own the game, so how is nintendo supposed to know that you own the game or not? Now what i don't understand is, if I own the game for the console it's meant for, if I go somewhere, how can I legally play the game on a portable console? And even if they did sell the same game for a portable console, why pay for the same game twice?

    Well what about games like Diddy kong and 007 since Nintendo wont put up the cash to get the rights to (games Nintendo should still own) so if you are playing TOMS your never see on the Wii Im fine with it but games like Mario Kart and Zelda buy the games.

    if you didnt create the rom yourself then it is illegal because it goes against copyrights law.


    wii doesnt have any homebrews yet.. the only way to play emulators is with gamecube ported emulators and there arent any N64 ported on the gamecube.. i doubt goldeneye007 will be release.. even on a pc there are some glitches so i doubt nintendo could make a good emulator to run it.. they cant even get mario kart to run perfect.

    Hey, I didn't say that, JarrodDRagon did, so I don't know why you quoted it saying I said it

    As for running ROMS on the Wii, possible or not, legal or not, whatever or not, the quality of the ROM won't be the quality of what you get from shop Wii shop channel, I say this out of experience, I ran into ROM trouble myself, just pay for the game, and for the games that come from RARE, i'm pretty sure that someting will go through, or they will make some kind of software portal to those game or something, it's not like nintendo to leave us out in the cold like that, metaphorically speaking of course, nintendo wouldn't have us freeze our a**es off, lol

    Nintendo has always done everything in their power to give the costomers what they want and have NEVER been greedy about it. Roms suck and can occasionally crash systems, including affect other files on the sd card. I would definitely suggest NOT trying this method, it really sucks if the file is damaged or damages other software on your Wii. I would just buy the game, guarenteed to work, great prices, and above all else it doesn't leave you at risk of damaging your system. Believe me I've done enough of it to know what CAN happen....:idea:
