so i heard it got hacked...
what the hell does that mean?
It means we're one step closer to Wii homebrew.
and what kind of benefits will that provide?
It means you'll be able to make your own drinks with it
You've seem homebrew games and applications for DS, right?
Well, it's a step closer to getting homebrew games and applications for the Wii!
well, i understand that. but what will the wii be good for? what will be the use of it if we already have computers that can do most things?
only thing i can think of is emulators, heralding the death of the virtual console
Imagine using the Wii's SD slot to play Divx movies from your very own Divx Channel. Or having a Linux Channel. Stuff like that would be very cool.
That would be REALLY cool...We're getting closer...
what about playing divx movies from a dvd in my dvd player
......or we could make it shot DVD's at a rate of 5dvd/s and then upgrade it to be able to pierce walls
well, we can make a wii homebrew game that utilizes Head Tracking and make a game w/ 3d environment. for now, head trackign can only be used by a computer w/ wii remote & sensor bar, but if we can make a homebrew game that go with it, then F*CK YEAH!
watch head tracking on youtube to see what i'm talking about.
well you can also create new games for the wii... or maybe a wii action replay channel, or a wii new menu or soft mod since now they can start dumping ram data and discover new things about the wii. Wii mail, wii IM messanger, support for webcam, anything you want you wii to do...
or what else? a real multimedia player that plays also dvd? I would like to see that for example....
headtracking seems pretty cool, but i still can't see the point of all these funky ideas in a real world setting.
Well it would allow independent game developers to utilize the wiimote in a seemless way for the end user. creating wiimote games for the pc requires the user to set up a lot of software, and additional hardware. All the noncommercial, yet interesting and unique ideas people have for wii games and demos could have a place on an sd card wedged firmly inside your wii.
Surely that justifies homebrew software.
Well sphere9 is particularly right. Homebrews are pretty pointless when you have pc, maybe other console and stuff.
If there will be homebrew scene like psp's then it could be cool, but usually homebrew coders don't do nintendos so much : D
think about never having to waste a dvd on a crappy wii game again....think of being able to mount iso's from a external hdd plugged into the wii.
I'm just waiting for the one MUST HAVE feature - a custom firmware, or a way of changing the language on a Japanese firmware console.
Thats the most exciting possibility I think, along with a Linux channel. I think this will be one of the first things to come out of it. Once they've done that, it will make it easier to test ISO's for homebrew developers.
This is also one step closer to a Wii Freeloader hopefully.
You're one dull person.
