    Read the forum. If this was released, it'd be big news and be a sticky. And people would be starting all kinds of threads about it on top of that. There is no Wii U homebrew yet, which would be a prerequisite. There is a rumor that homebrew is being developed, you can read that thread, but it hasn't been officially confirmed yet. It would then take probably months of work on top of homebrew to develop a ISO loader. There is also a rumor about a Wii U optical disc emulator which would be the other way to load ISOs. But those people are working on the lame PS3, not even PS4 right now, instead. So maybe next year, but definitely not this year. It sucks. I'm on vacation right now. I didn't want to bring a bunch of discs with me. So I have my digital games, plus two discs. All my other games are stuck at home and we can't play them.

    Well there is the WiiKeÜ http://wiikey.com/news/ and this is coming from a renowned Wii modchip team so I believe it is real, but it may take a while longer before it is in a state ready for public consumption.

    Right. If you like those few Wii U isos then I recommend you to get them while you can. It can be useless for now but one day.. Who knows ? For me, I would however those few Wii U isos are not my type, thought. :-)

    P.S. I wonder why they do not dumped more Wii U games? Hmm.

    The only people who can play play Wii U isos are people who are beta testing WiiUkey. They are also the only ones who can rip new games.
