    What kind of Homebrews would you guys love to come to be true?

    I'd love to play emulator games in 1080p or on the gamepad, hacking cheats/codes and looking if some unused content can be found in games.
    Oculus Rift support for Wii U games.
    USB Controller Support for Wii U games.

    I'd just like to know what others like to see :)
    I hope its not piracy, just as it's mentioned here very often..? :sad:

    With two screens, the DS can potentially be emulated properly.

    Better N64 and PSX emulators (full speed), DS would be pretty awesome, heck, even Dreamcast would be sweet :D

    I'd like to see them do a 3ds/2ds emulator (like that would ever happen). I'd settle for DS emulation, and fullspeed PSX, N64, and Dreamcast emus too.

    This is probably more vWii, but I'd be interested in seeing Okami with touch-screen support. The wiimote was pretty good for the celestial brush, but the gamepad seems like the ultimate control for that game.

    SteamOS uses x86 processor architechture, the WiiU uses a PowerPC processor, so that wouldn't work.

    Programs:
    A Media Player that can handle BlueRay rips.

    Emulators:
    Qemu?
    Dreamcast
    N64
    PSP
    3DO
    CD-i
    DSi
    PSX
    Saturn
    ...all those things last gen consoles couldn't manage or could barely manage.

    Ports:
    Again, anything that the old hardware could not do, though of course I'd LOVE to see GzDOOM or ZDOOM, DOOMsDay and naturally Odamex, gotta have Odamex!

    Definitely media players that could handle anime at hi10p and with subtitles, I don't like streaming services.
    Then an emulator for the DS, it could be done somehow.

    Other emus not so much, as with recent development I understood they could just be sent from a Pc to the gamepad and if that is possible then something like Retroarch on the Pc would just be perfect on the gamepad.

    Backup loaders? They might as well stop production of the console now.

    A decent Media Player for the Wii U would be nice
    Homebrew Games from the Community
    Maybe some Emulators (To be honest, the virtual Console sux pretty much ... sadly...)
    Some cool other homebrew like
    - ftp
    - nand backup and recovery (like bootmii... but i doubt that this will be easy to code..)
    - maybe some sort of otheros support (i mean.. they said it could have been implemented technically...)
    hm, thats about it iguess

    Get off your high horse. Gamecube ISOs are in the same category as a Wii/U ISO.
