sorry bad english not sure If this is correct forum to ask it. I am sorry. I cannot find answer in google, to say the truth I became more confuse in the search, maybe I am not using right words in the search. I hope someone can help me, I have very few money and I have fear of to buy something that I regret afterwards. questions: 1- a hacked Wii compatible with gamecube that can play pirated wii games can still play original wii games and original gamecube games ? I see in google someone saying that a hacked wii can play only wii games cannot play anymore gamecube games, even original genuine gamecube games. this is true ? 2- a original gamecube memory card is a fortune here in Brazil, but a non original is cheap, but, is reliable ? In google some people say that this do not matter and others say that the save data is corrupted all the time in a non original gamecube. Here in Brazil have 2 options, which one is more reliable ?
