    I was browsing Gamespot and saw an ad for this website that says it will let you download wii games and burn them for a subscription of $29 ...this must be a joke right? How would that be possible if the wii doesnt play backups? [​IMG]

    The site is http://www.wiidownloader.com

    Theres plenty of idiots on the internet that believe that they've won a XBOX 360 or something everytime a banner pops up, my aunt went crazy celebrating once thinking she had won a car, but it was just a stupid pop up lol [​IMG]

    Nope, it's still there.

    Q. What is included with a Wii Downloader Membership?

    A. With your WiiDownloader Membership you receive instant access to millions of files ready to be downloaded. This includes but is not limited to Wii Games , WiiSoftware , Xbox 360 Games , PC Games , PSP Games, movies, television shows, video games, and music making our network one of the biggest online.

    Q. Do you offer a money back guarantee?

    A. Due to the nature of the site being a digital product once you have accessed the membership area we cannot offer a refund.

    Nice, no money refund.
