    Hello everyone. A year ago I bought a WII to play GAMECUBE games. Unfortunately I got the new model Wii. Model that does not allow me to play GC games. My question is if I can buy cheap GAMECUBE, hack it and play games.
    And is it possible to hack any firmware version of the GAMECUBE?

    Hacking a Gamecube requires a modchip (which you're probably going to have difficulty finding since it's two generations old). Also if you want to burn games to a fullsize disc instead of a mini-dvd you need a special, after market case (which is also going to be difficult to find).

    Thanks for the response. I guess I'll stay with dolphin. I thought i can hack the gamecube in the softmod way like the wii.

    I guess I'll wait a year or two for NINTENDONT!!! Besides I buy only through EBAY and use only paypal.

    Older Gamecube does a bit more.
    Component video (expensive but needed for NTSC models to display 50hz in color) plus early Action Replay versions.

    That restricts you quite a bit, seeing as both those companies ban the sale of hacked consoles and modchips through their websites.

    There's GCOS for the Action Replay:

    It's a bit cumbersome.

    and

    http://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Wii-Card-Adapter-Included/dp/B000RC51Q4

    I think that's all you need, except for an SD card (2GB or smaller, if I remember correctly).
