    well that's what happens when you don't want to pay for games legally... not meaning to sound harsh but deal with it

    Well you update your Wii, beat Punch-Out!! and downgrade back to whatever version you want. Not a big deal.

    And Dice,

    What does upgrading have to do with buying games legally. How about if he had some Trucha signed games. Emulators that will get blocked by new firmware, or something else.

    Why is it always piracy if someone doesn't want to update their Wii?

    Hahaha Yeah prettttty sure they'll want me to upgrade, won't they?

    Is Nintendo not requiring mandatory updates from 3.2 on their new games?

    Nintendo requires you to have the latest firmware to access the shop channel. Don't assume everyone is a pirate.

    Why wouldn't you update? If you aren't a pirate, then there is no need to not upgrade.

    If you are, stop using some hacks like twilight hack to run your stuff and get a modchip.

    No, upgrade to 3.3 and click into Wii Shop Channel, than downgrader your Wii to like 2.0 (The Wii first firmware) and then you see a white channel (and that is wii shop channel) click on it and then come the music and the backround from 3.3. Start it and its work!

    I don't update even though I have a modchip, cause it will stop trucha signed discs and freeloader to stop working.

    That way I won't be able to play custom version of Guitar Hero, uncensored No More Heroes and a whole lot of USA/JAP games which do not reach in Europe or will get here really late.

    I don't want to update because I like using homebrew. I couldn't care less about the Backup Loader, that's just a nice little extra. I just want to be able to run PlayStation-games in the future, watch DVDs and play games in emulators or ports of their engines.

    That said, if there's a game which is really good (for me that's not Punch-Out) I'd upgrade and just hope for Team Twiizers to do something about it.

    GeckoOS rules and I like the fact that it integrated the cheat system as well. Too bad it's dead now. there won't be any more updates according to the author.
