    Unfortunately it is not. Maybe someday but not anytime soon.

    Shame. How about GC controllers for Wii games like Brawl/MKWii?

    Same situation. It's definitely possible, but difficult to do and would require patching the game and how it accesses IOS slots (and potentially writing a new cIOS for it)

    That's what would go in the new cIOS ;)

    You could do that in userland as well.

    I suppose, but I think most people are looking for a persistent hack. Still, that is an option (not that it matters if no one builds it :T)

    Well use a HDD, backup your games and make the usb loader patch the games for you. :-P

    Or Riivolution, but yeah. This conversation proves the point that it's possible, there's just a general lack of interest
