Video showing a hacked Wii playing copied games

Hey,

The movie should speak for itself. However I'm not totally convinced yet.
The author will throw the used boot sofware on the net on Januari 1 2007.

Man, if this is the real deal then the Wii is among the fastest hacked consoles. I also seems very effortlessly done.

Please note that it is only legal to copy games YOU OWN for BACKUP purposes. Copying for any other reason is illegal and can get you into huge amounts of trouble.

Of course. But we are allowed just to talk about, right? I posted this for its newsvalue. I'm also not planning on buying a Wii.

I subscribe to the "Hacker Ethic" which means that I fundamentally believe that information belongs to everyone. That said, AOA will not be party to discussions on how to steal from others. Discussing how to illegally copy a CD is wrong. Discussing how to make a backup copy of your game so that you can prevent damage to the original media is another matter.

I realize that many will consider the distinction a matter of semantics. I consider it a matter of intent. I can teach you how to forge steel and sharpen it to make a knife; you are the one who uses that knowledge to make a weapon and then go out and kill someone.

Do realize, though, that AOA reserves the right to terminate any discussion at any time if we feel that it has stepped out of bounds. Also be mindful of the rules that are posted in a sticky in every forum.

I believe the newer consoles will update their firmware/OS over the net. So, I'd suspect that some of these hacks will be short lived, until a new one comes along!

Game CD's do get scratched easily. Especially those for consoles; you've got to use the CD everytime you play, given you can't fully install it to a hard disk.

Do these games have any kind of licence key?
