    While the gui/lcd navigation to select the iso's is nice, I wonder if it would be possible to say mod an existing loader say wiiflow to actually point to the chip. So that it can be used as our on screen gui letting us download covers etc, heck maybe even set it up so. That we can download gamecube covers as well.. now I don't know a lot about coding so if my idea is bonkers please tell me, and why its so.

    now all they need to do is have a horizontal version of this that has an internal space for a laptop SATA Hdd. solid state hdd would be better for some thing like this as a normal hdd would get hot and adding fans to the WODE stand would push prices up.

    will this thing allow wiiware and VC games to run too?

    I doubt it as this isn't meant to emulate NAND.

    Cause.. having your wii sit on it as a stand and plugging in a 500 gig or so usb hdd and standing it right next to it is to much of a hassle huh?

    Well YEAH! as a matter of fact it is as there is no room under my tv for the wii to stand upright.

    ROFL since theres a cable that connects the two guess you can lay the wii down and put the stand right next to it, and set the hdd on top of it.

    Well this certainly looks magical for an idiot like me who's still having issues with his shoddy softmodding... Not like I'm trying to commandeer this topic by any means!

    Thank you for sharing, very cool.
    THANK YOU Tealc & sociallyantisocial!!

    It all sounds good that you can store all your games on a HDD, but I believe the original issue was that the Wii had a memory cap that you could only store a handful of Wii ware on the system menu till you had to erase or alternate your favorite games. Nintendo did add the feature to read your Wii ware from an SD card by temporarily transferring the game to the memory. The only problem is that you can't load the Wii Ware that a buddy gave you or you have down loaded. The WODE would be awesome if the Wii could load all Apps from the HDD. The article does mention that you don't have the special "costly" DVD drive to read and write backups. If you think of it, up to now all gamers that have a Wii and have decided to make backup already own a the LG DVD reader. I guess that the only advantage is that you can have all your games in a HDD and that you lengthen the life of your DVD drive lazer. If i'm wrong on anything, please correct me. Thanks.

    This item is a year too late, you can now copy your discs using the wii itself and you can store them all on an hard drive already.

    The idea is fantastic but unfortunately 12 months too late, can you imagine if this was available LAST November...it would have sold probably thousands, now it will be lucky to sell many at all because everybody came immitate it for free.
