like the title says, is it possible to make something that reads wii u discs on the switch? obviously there isn't homebrew yet, but would it be possible if there was?

Edit: oh shit this isn't the eof

No. That's not at all how it works. Even with homebrew you wouldn't even be running digital copies of wii u games. The hardware is too different to run it natively, and too weak to emulate it.

Yes it's possible! No it's not possible on the Switch. Cemu doesn't even run at fullspeed on really powerful machines. A tiny Switch won't be near able to do anything of that sort.

Of cause it is. All you need is the current sdk from both the switch and the wiiu. A wiiu games source code and a few programmers with enough knolage zo port the code from one system to the other. Theb just sign the code with current legit cryptokeys and ideally press the code on a card or release it to the eshop. You can even make money that way if you have the right to use all prts involved.

LOL! If it is able to do that then Nintendo Switch sale will be skyrocket!!

No, it can't and wont do that in the future. Impossible due to computer hardware differently. You are funny, by the way. However, I liked your idea and again too bad that it is just a dream.

No, just no. The sad thing is that I saw a (very clickbaity) video a while back of a dude that hooked up a DVD drive to his switch dock by usb and tried to play a Wii u game through that. People get desperate for those clicks sometimes.

The only way to play Wii U games are if someone ports it over to the Switch. Even if the Switch was fully hacked, this would be impossible for most games since they are the property of one or more companies and the source code will never be yours unless it is leaked or sold off to a company that folds and liquidates their assets, and somehow you get the source code. Even if you had the source code, the time and money it would take to Port it yourself, excluding the skills needed would be far beyond one's reach without a team to work on it. Having a whole team would still not solve the money issue, which would kill any kind of decent porting.

I mean... technically, yes? A custom driver for a USB disc reader? (assuming everything gets hacked) Not going to work for playing Wii U games, though. It'd be very useless, I'd say.

It would be completely useless for reading Wii U discs and would only read Wii/GC discs if a rawdump compatible drive was connected. This would still not allow playing games as you have already mentioned.
