***Wii with built in hdd with 20 game selection***
My son broke his leg...so to the hospital we go...which turns out to have not been for nothing...hehe
to make matters short
by his room was a portable wii :D that we had wheeled inside his room
[ the wii was encased in a stand along with a lcd screen and a dvd player]
unfortunately the stand was make out of strong metal with the nintendo name stamped into the metal. and also the wii name on the very top of the stand. I couldn't get into it as hard as I tried
This package was produced by nintendo for the hospitals..even the switch for switching between the wii and dvd player has the nintendo name on the back.
we turned it on and was met by a new menu screen.
The menu screen was a side scrolling wii games menu of 20 games.
you would just point to the game you wish to play and Press "A" ..then into the game you go.
needless to say I was totally consumed on how to get into the stand without any tools....
The only thing I could do was use a flash light to look through the ventilation grills......
I could see that the wii had extra holes in the case with different wires coming out and going here and there... the usb port was used...the was No hdd visible inside the stand so I can only think that it was where the original dvd drive used to be.
This probably marks a changing point with wii development...as it is only a matter of time ..before 1 of these will end up in "certain proper hands"
After doing some research locally... apparently about 40 of these portable units were received by all our local hospitals less than 2 weeks ago... by nintendo and the starlight foundation for the youth sections of the hospitals
Props to "N" and the Starlight Foundation for making this hack a reality....

Damn .. what are you trying to get at here? i'm kinda confused on what your point is =\

Hey ModderMan, How is your Son, hope he is going to be fine.
So this all sounds like a custom made Wii for Hospitals, which as you say, can have huge impact on future Wii development.

Instead of commiting a crime, why not just ask a friendly nurse if you can borrow it for a day or two and in the mean time you can leave your wii with them with 40 back-ups :)

unless u want to give them the original disc
(backups are illegal if you dont have original )
i suggest you follw this sortof fool prof plan:cool:

Yes, back-up are illigal if you don't own the originals, I just assumed the 40 backups were of the originals that are bought and owned as you don't want the kids scratching up your discs.

i am sure because you wouldn't want little kids who are sick handling your originals that can easily be scratched :mad:
