    I don't expect the wii to survive for 1-2 years after the release of the Wii U. I mean, IMO the Wii was already dead before Skyward Sword came around. SS is like a final salute to the Wii

    I think it will last sometime.
    The wii will live through the wii u when it is dead.
    One wii drought and it deem it is dead already. Gosh...

    Um... the people who are like I won't get it until it hack. Not only would it be likely not to happen for a while, but you are as well falsely telling devs
    we didn't support this console or game. (If it is enough people with that mindset.)

    I wonder how devs will balance the wiimotes and umotes?

    I think it's all about perspective, because as long as my Wii can run the Just Dance games, my girlfriend is going to keep it alive for a long time...

    Yep, times like this I'm glad I hacked the Wii;

    Programs like Snes9xGx, FceuGX, Wii64, WiiSX, CFG USB Loader, WiiMC and Wii Mednafen are all awesome. Being able to use these programs made the risks of bricking during the hackmii installation worth it. Heck, I even went as far as to disable region locking and forced system/ games disc updates so I can play the games NOA is asinine enough not to release. Hackers do what Nintendon't want to do.

    I play the majority of my Wii games on my PC. I don't think a system ever really dies. Just that the elite hardcore gamers stop bi7ching about piracy and give the community some needed relief.

    Lets face it, we ALL (people over the age of twenty five) have used a SNES emulator at some point. Maybe the system itself will disappear, but the games will live for ever. Even the bad ones. No system ever dies completely. Unfortunately...

    I'm 30. I grew up NES. I didn't play much SNES or even genesis, but my all time favorite game is Super Metroid. There have been a few hacks of the game which bring back the glory of that game with a fresh new playability, and there are even some uncompleted projects of hacks of Super metroid that will probably never be completed, but I can pley that game and it's hacks and never get bored. I personally rate it as the best game in history.

    The wii is great and all, but it is certainly at the end of it's life cycle and I won't feel bad to say goodbye to the wii once the wiiu gets hacked for homebrew... if that ever happens.

    Umm, Nintendo re-released it on GBA a long time ago and GBA ain't going anywhere for a long time. I'm excited for the WiiU but I'll always love the Wii and it will be my DvD player and my PS3 will always be my Blue Ray player. Even if they stop making games all the utilities that hackers have made make this console never obsolete for me :D

    Google is your best friend. :D

    j/k. I quickly googled it but could not find it on a quick search. There are many hacks of it, but the one that I remember the most was 'Super Metroid Redesign' and 'Super Metroid Alliance' which is still unfinished and probably will never be finished. I know there are MANY hacks, but it's been years since I downloaded them so I forget where I got them. The only thing that sticks in my mind is Zophars domain... but that might not be where I got the hacks... it's been way to long.

    Send me a PM if you want, and I will send you the IPL files or whatever the hell they were that had that uncopyrighted changed data.

    Off of my memory, there was also 'Super Metroid Impossible' which was a hack that you needed to be a supreme player and know all the glitches and strange abilities for it to be beaten without cheats (I got 20 minutes into it before giving up).

    I'm not sure if this LINK is allowed here since it is only a link to a page and not an actual file, but either way hopefully you will grab it before it gets deleted. And I'm pretty sure Super Metroid has been claimed as abandoned ware, so if that is the case then this should be completely legal.

    Here is another LINK that may have some useful info, but certainly no chance of copyrighted data.

    Like I said, it's been a long time since I've looked into this and I already have my completed roms so I haven't had to search for a while. But I play Super Metroid Redesign at least once a year, and now that I can play it on my android phone and use my wiimote with it, I am in happy land. People look at me funny using a wiimote to play a game and having a small phone sit on my knee while I'm at Chuckie Cheese kinda watchin my kids :D

    Damn youre right, forgot about that.
    But the point was that if the console and its games would just disappear, there would be a lot of good games gone. There is no "unfortunately" with the consoles never really dying.

    There are a few relatively unknown consoles that somehow got emulators. It's heresy to speak their names. aLttP is also on the GBA. I prefer the GBA version to be honest, Right now my current SNES game is Illusions of Gaia. I plan to play Mario RPG next. I'm waiting for FF6 to be ported to the DS/3DS before I play it the whole way through. I'm hoping the 3DS gets hacked because I want to see what awesome N64 and PS1 emulator the community will make using the 3D screens.

    Regarding the Wii. It'll probably stay around for a while. At least till the Wii U gets hacked. I emulate it at 1080p on my PC along with PS2 games so I don't bother with my real consoles anymore. I also don't need homebrew since the PC is the ultimate homebrew machine. Plus dolphin can run ciso and wad files directly now. Why chance bricking a wii when I can be 100% safe on the pc?


    What's missing? Besides doing the dungeons out of order for the Cane to make the other dungeons easy as pie. Speaking of which, I got the 3ds zelda bundle and I was pi$sed when I found out they removed getting the golden scale early glitch. I'm also unable to perform the the glide and the sword and sign glitch. Kind of a downer. I'm going to try getting the Oasis early glitch but it isn't looking promising.

    I'm also one of those guys who plan to keep their Wii for a long time, even though I plan to pick up a Wii U possibly on launch day.
    And the reason it's very simple: CFG.
    Until somebody will come up with a way to hack the Wii U, I plan on actually buy the games this time around, but only the ones I really like and deserving .
    I'll keep my Wii and I will play all the games I didn't come around to play and finish just yet ( a lot ! ) in between Wii U major releases.
    Also the Wii it's non bad as an emulator box ( now that I gave up my gaming PC ), just today I had some fun installing WiiUAE and enjoyed some classic Amiga games.
    Also VERY important detail, my Wii is also hard chipped with a Wiikey, meaning that I'm able to play every Game Cube games I can get my hands on trouble free.
    Yes, my Wii is long from dead and will stick around for years, I'm pretty sure !
