    Being a fan of both the Wii and PC gaming, I sometimes find myself wondering if homebrew would allow the possibility of using a keyboard and mouse and controls, instead of the wiimote.

    Not that I don't love the wiimote+nunchuck, but sometimes it causes worse carpal tunnel than a keyboard and mouse. So I'm curious if it'd be possible to implement such a thing in the custom IOS to possibly allow it?

    I'd try it in Dolphin but it doesn't look like it has mouse support ATM.

    There's already functions for mouse and keyboard input in libogc.

    Edit: Oh wait, you mean in games not homebrew? I can't see that happening.

    Games won't ever have this, homebrew does.

    possible... yes.
    difficult... very.
    probably going to happen... no.
    it would take a lot of effort by somebody that thought it was important enough to implement. or somebody that thought it was important enough to implement paying money to somebody to spend a lot of effort to make it work.

    But the Wii isn't capable of playing real good PC games.
    It has only 88MB of RAM.

    Still, with things like the Metroid Prime Trilogy, The Conduit, etc. Keyboard and mouse controls would be great at times.
