Will Wii See Hackability

The GameCube wasn’t very hackable. It used the Mini-DVD’s and even ripping them and finding DVD’s that were the same size didn’t work. I don’t think we’ll be seeing the type of stuff that can be done on the Dreamcast of Original X-Box, but the Wii might offer more than meets the eye.

“It also will be home to new games conceived by indie developers whose creativity is larger than their budgets.” wii.nintendo.com

The out of the box Virtual Console and the Homebrew abilities lend me to believe that the hacking community will take this to the max. I don’t feel the need to copy Wii Games, but being able to have vairous emulators on hand could make things very interesting. I don’t put anything out of the relm of the modding community. If there is a way to do something they will figure it out, no matter how complicated the process will be.

If the Wii has an SD card slot for storage, or a USB for a harddrive storage. I see a mass storage and media device. If it’s got the Wi-Fi going for it. Connect you computer to it upload files or plug the usb drive to your computer upload what you want. Movies, music, pictures programms for all this will be comming down the pike sooner that we think.

Depending on what “Indie” developers are required to purchace or have access to, we are going to be in for a treat.

I’m waiting to play After Bruner on Mame with a Wii-Mote.
