    I don't think so. It should be released in ten days! That's not an awful lot of time [​IMG]

    I'm note surprised, with the advent of trucha signer. The ARDS came out very soon after slot-1 encryption was cracked.

    It's only for Gamecube games on the Wii I think [​IMG]

    Well the CodeJunkies site indicates it's also for Wii games, and even that it's available now for purchase :wtf:

    Freeloader?

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/freeloader

    Yeah, Datel fits the definition. They leech information out of the scene community for their own gain. Slot-1 encryption broken? They release the ARDS, which gives them millions of dollars and opens up online hacking to the mainstream masses. Trucha signer released? Now an AR for the Wii is coming too, I can just feel it.

    A freeloader for the wii which runs gamecube games has been released ages ago, so if this is true, it will indeed most likely be able to run wii games.

    The way it worked for the cube was: You put the disc in, wait till it loads (takes less than 10 seconds) and it asks you to switch with your copy of the game you'd like to play and then it boots.

    I'm curious what this thing will do. If it will be able to just play the games you can play with a modchip as well, or that it will open up to 'all' wii games. We'll see...

    Assuming the bit for wii is true and not a error , then I guess the software will block the updates from running. Either that or they'll go with the usual X accepts no responsibility for damage caused by this product , import software is run at your own risk etc , and if you brick it , then tough.

    Strange how they can claim it works for all wii games though , the chips haven't even managed 100% region free yet , but datel can [​IMG] .

    From Datel's site: "This is the one you’ve all been waiting for! Wii FreeLoader lets you play ANY region of Wii or GameCube game on your Nintendo Wii! At last, you can import games from other territories and play them on your Wii…"

    it seems it works the same way as the old gamecube freeloaders where you put the disc in the Wii load it up and then swap the disc, the only thing i'm concerned about is nintendo attempting to block it again, this would save me loads of money as i won't have to buy a usa Wii [​IMG]

    Yep. I'm pretty sure they already had one of these a while ago and Nintendo put out a FW update out that rendered it useless.

    100% region free support? That's pretty handy, if it works.
