Nintendo Wii Emulation
The Wii is really just an improved version of the GameCube that consists of an IBM 729MHz CPU, an ATI graphics card clocked at 243 MHz, 88 MB of RAM in total, a DVD drive, wireless 802.11b/g, and 512 MB of flash based memory. Since it is so heavily based on the GameCube it wont be too long until the hardware is emulated. Even now as we speak you can run GameCube Homebrew on the Wii such as SNES or NES Emulators and with modchips already on the market you no longer need an Action replay to run GameCube homebrew.

A number of our visitors have sent us emails to various sources stating that the creators have working Wii Emulators. We’d like to thank all of you for the time you have taken to send us these tips!
Over the past week few weeks we have been watching the WAB team make attempts at figuring out what makes the Wii tick. After many attempts and long nights dumping data on several chips they have found out that the bios is in fact encrypted along with most other chips. With everything being encrypted the data that was dumped is not very useful at all. This isnt too much of a surprise to us considering where past modchips came from. The thing that is catching our attention is their dedication to open up the wii to homebrew even after many failed attempts.
When is the code due?
The Competition Entries should be submitted on or before 6th July 2007.
What can we develop?
Entries can be Emulators, Homebrew Games, Demos or Applications that work directly on the Gamecube/Nintendo Wii.
True Nintendo Wii homebrew is inching forward day by day and with this latest release from datel you are able to launch GameCube homebrew natively on the Wii. Before we had to enter countless numbers of Action Replay codes to run homebrew using the AR method. But now all you need to do is merely plug the Datel SDmedia launcher device in. This means that you now have much faster access to any homebrew applications such as Emulators. Sadly the device does not yet support Wii homebrew just yet but it is most defiantly a step in the right direction.
CYCLO-WIZ, by Team Cyclops, is the only upgradeable Wii modchip out on the market at the moment. This chip allows you to play all your Nintendo Wii and GameCube backups and GameCube Homebrew software. It does not however run Wii Homebrew. This is still a great chip though because now you wont need to use a GameCube Action Replay and SDload to run GameCube Homebrew on a Wii. (more…)
