Hackers Expand Wii Storage, Door Now Open To Filthy Pirates

Although the recent ability to run Virtual Console and WiiWare games from your SD card has stopped people moaning about the previously thorny issue of internal storage space, it hasn’t stopped industrious hackers taking the concept to the next level by enabling users to hook up a USB hard drive and run their retail Wii games from it. No more loading, no more discs.

However, while this neat trick is obviously going to help lazy couch potatoes that can’t be bothered to get up and change discs whenever they feel like playing a different game, it also opens the door for rampant piracy. You don’t actually have to own the original games to do this; all you need is the game image, and these are relatively easy to obtain online.
