    Top 5 things or Apps your Wii can do other then playing games

    I have been playing games on a softmodded Wii for about a year. I just recently got back into updating it and I found out there are a lot more things you can do on the Wii other then just play games, so it got me wondering what else can the Wii do that the casual softmodder didn't know about?

    For me...a lot of my exploration into homebrew has been about playing games meant for other machines. I love emulation! I don't think there's that much that people don't know about. All you have to do is take a quick look over the applications list on WiiBrew and you can kind of figure out what's out there and what you can do. Or alternately you could download the homebrew browser and search through it to see what's out there.

    Why, emulate of course... NES, N64, there are many others (and all to one degree or another work to some point, lol --- strictly a "your mileage may vary" thing).

    Emulators allow you to emulate other old school consoles, arcade games, and PCs on the Wii. For example you can play old C64 or NES games (amongst others) on the Wii via an emulator.

    True indeed. But most of the old old school ones are near if not perfect. The more modern the system the more problematic the emulator.
