    Apparently very soon wii user will be able to load wiiware + vc titles directly to your sd card and also play them of it.
    So im thinking Nintendo will have to do a firmware upgrade.
    Now the challenge is to see if the wads will still work.

    Welcome to last week, this has already been posted.

    And no you won't be able to play them off the SD card. All this "solution" is, is that you are able to download games directly onto the SD card when your Wii memory is full. THATS IT! You can't play the games off the SD card.

    And I know this because the main man from Nintendo said so:

    “We will make it so that, when there is not enough room on the Wii’s internal memory, you will be able to purchase and download Virtual Console and WiiWare software directly from the Shopping Channel to an SD memory card. We will also make it so that you will need to go through just one process in order to transfer Virtual Console or WiiWare software stored on an SD card to the Wii console and then be able to play it. We would like to deal with this issue utilizing two methods. Since the updates to realize these new structures will require significant revisions to the Wii system, and these changes need to be made by taking care of a variety of different angles, this method will become effective beginning next spring. For some of you, this may be considered late. But please know that we really appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We are working hard so we can begin the service as soon as possible.” - Satoru Iwata

    Again Nintendo has got it wrong.

    from what iwata said, it should be something like this:

    "your wii memory is full... do you wish to download the game to the SD card instead?"
    of course you should click yes...
    "downloading... download complete. Remember to make room on your wii memory to be able to play this game!"
    now, when browsing the SD memory, you could click on a game, and instead of copying, there would be swapping between the SD and the wii.
    of course, this is just speculation [​IMG] But thats what I understood.
