At last, the Nintendo Wii Freeloader has become available over at Code Junkies for an incredible £9.99 before the ridiculous postage. I am tempted to buy one simply so I can play Brawl when its released on March 9th 2008. The only question is, has the latest Firmware updates from Nintendo stopped the Freeloaders working on updated consoles, such as mine?
The article and press release in full
"This is the one you’ve all been waiting for! Wii FreeLoader lets you play ANY region of Wii or GameCube game on your Nintendo Wii! At last, you can import games from other territories and play them on your Wii…
"Videogamers the world over get really frustrated when games are released in other territories long before they reach the shops in their home country, if they ever get released at all. You want to play that blockbuster survival horror which is out in Japan three months before it hits the shelves elsewhere. What about the soccer or F1 sim which only gets a European release or a gridiron football or NBL baseball game that’s never released outside the States? Or maybe you bought an imported Wii because you wanted to get it early, and you now want to play games from your own region without buying a second machine. Well, now you can. With Wii FreeLoader, you can play ANY region of game on your Wii!
"Wii FreeLoader is really easy to use. Simply insert your FreeLoader disc and load it in the usual way. When the drive stops, eject the Wii FreeLoader disc and insert the game, which then loads and plays just like it would on its own region of Wii. It’s as simple as that!
"Wii FreeLoader is 100% unofficial, but as it requires no modifications to your console, it does not invalidate the warranty. As well as letting you play Wii games from all regions, Wii FreeLoader also works with imported GameCube games when played on your Wii. It won’t work in a GameCube console, though – for that, you need Freeloader for GameCube, also available from Codejunkies…"
* Play ANY region of Wii or GameCube game on ANY Wii.

At just £9.99 as well, how can anyone resist? Be sure to head over to the official site to order a copy right away!

It is indeed awesome. I was wondering, does the freeloader make it so you can play copied games? I don't think it does, but if so it would be a big money saver for modders in general. My roomate charges like $120 for a hard mod. Anyone know if the old freeloader made it so you could play copied games.?
Why is always the rum gone?
