    I agree...the possibility of this being permenant too (can't be remevod via updates) is also quite interisting

    I would just like to say in a shout out to all Australians that I am currently in talks with distributing this mod in Australia upon release.

    From what I understand it runs the isos from an SD card. Those things aren't cheap enough yet to buy a lot of them. I'm guessing there will be a way to hook it up to a HDD in the future though.

    Yaeh I really like the idea of this, especially the ability to run NGC backups.

    It says in the video they insert an 8GB thumbdrive, so it already works with an external HDD.

    i guess wii games would be harder to emulate but the emulator based games would definitely be fnished soon (though soon is still quite far)
