So it IS possible then without hardware changes? Ninty have no excuses as to why they haven't FW updated to put that in, hopefully they will do pull a Sony re: the PSP and introduce the feature to counteract the hackers getting a foothold.
Anyway, all of this is making me consider picking a Wii up here again, my one has a permanent residency at my sisters as I wasn't playing it enough, mainly due to game pricing and game delays, if these developments keep on coming, I may as well get one for US games and DVD playback.
