Downloading free Wii games is an idea that makes every console owner foam at the mouth. Wii’s are pretty hard to find these days, and are slowly winning the next generation console war. In the rest of this article we’ll show you how to download free Wii games..
The humble, affordable, underpowered Wii has already left a large impression on the history of games consoles. There are more Wii owners than any other current generation console, and most of them want nothing more than to download free Wii games. In order to do that, there are a few things every Wii owner should know about downloading free games…
1-Firstly, you need to decide on your definition of “free”. It is possible to download free Wii games of a few different kinds. The most obvious kind is the new games and big releases that you’d find in stores. You can usually find these to download if you know where to look, but it’s only legal for you to download them if you already own the original. You may wonder why people bother, but it’s purely to use as a backup, so they can use that version and save the original from being scratched or whatever. It may sound crazy but it’s true, and yes people do download free Wii games just for this purpose.
2-The other kind of game is the homebrew kind of game. A game that’s been home brewed is just what the title suggests, a game that’s been made in someone’s home, IE, not a big professional release. These games are obviously of a slightly lower quality than the big releases, but hey they are free, and you can find some genuinely interesting stuff. It’s quite common for new gaming ideas to first be used in homebrew stuff, things like physics and ragdoll effects.
How To Go About It:
If you are intent on downloading free Wii games as backup software for games you already have, you can’t just slide the copied disc into the Wii and have it work. Nintendo are far too smart for that, any disc that doesn’t contain special code and manufacturer information will be rejected. To prevent this you’ll need to install a new chip inside your Wii, on one of the empty serial buses. That’s right, I said inside. You’ll need to open your Wii, and there will be soldering and everything. Feeling queasy? Doesn’t seem like such a great idea now does it?
You’ll be glad to hear that it’s a lot easier to download free Wii games of the homebrew variety. You’ll need a few different things – An SD card, an Action Replay for Gamecube, an SD card adapter, and some software called Sdload. If you have all these things it’s literally as simple as connecting it all together and using the SD card with the code in Memory Slot A, and using the Action Replay in Memory Slot B. Once you’ve got all this done there are a big list of codes you’ll need to use to unlock the Action Replay cartridge, there’s not room here, but these are readily available on the net.
