    Meh, somewhat useless for the tons of people that chipped their Wiis, or like myself, have a Wii from two regions. >_>

    I've seen at least 3 topics about this. Some people need to either need to learn how to use the search engine or learn to read.

    Ehm, no dude. Even if you have a chipped Wii, its still not region free. So chipped wii users are just as happy for this freeloader as anyone else [​IMG] (Esoesially we PAL users [​IMG])

    I'm sure Nintendo will end up blocking this and, as usual, Datel will force you to pay for an updated disc. Unless you are really desperate to play original imports, I wouldn't bother with it.

    Unless Datel has some way of getting around that. I doubt Datel would be that stupid to not learn from there mistakes.

    How are they 'forcing' you to buy an updated disc? (Most people with modchips will download it anyway)
    Do they even have a different choice other than releasing an updated version?

    Datel never learns anything. [​IMG]

    Nothing is really known at this time about how Datel has managed to make this work. Keep in mind, though, that the Action Replay was thwarted numerous times by PS2 hardware revisions. Since the Wii can be updated so easily by Nintendo via the internet, I'm sure they'll end up killing the Free Loader sooner than later.

    Sure, people with modchips will download the iso of the Freeloader (assuming it even works) but, since you already have a modchip, why would you even want to use it?

    If my memory serves me right, Datel could keep putting out revisions for this like there did for the GC Freeloader. I remember a magazine trying to review it and they reported that it was glitchy and can't work properly. Then they mentioned it was because Datel didn't send them a revised copy which they reported as working perfectly. It's either going to make Datel money if they keep putting out new versions or lose them money by having to recall and replace.

    Codejunkies.com = Datel
    If they say they have it in stock, I'm assuming they're not lying

    Silly question, will it allow backups? I remember some bootdiscs like this did(for other consoles), but does it work on wii?
