Fellow Wii users as I surf the net and visit forum after forum I am amazed at the amount of questions there are regarding Wii Homebrew. Could this be because it’s a relative new kid on the block or is it because there has been such a big growth in Wii sales over the Christmas period? Or is it the financial meltdown that everyone is experiencing that is forcing people to find cheaper alternatives for new games.
One of the questions that are raised frequently is, Is Wii Homebrew legal and will it void the warranty of my Nintendo Wii. This stems from the fact that you most probably have heard of all the great features that this software will enable you to do with your Nintendo Wii. As most of us are law abiding citizens and would prefer not to install software on our Wii that will compromise its warranty this is indeed a question that you could have been wondering about.
The good news is that Wii Homebrew is indeed Legal and it will not compromise the warranty of your Nintendo Wii. The reason for this is that Wii Homebrew is software and not a mod chip (peace of hardware) that you need to install on your Wii. This software will then open up your Wii to do things that it was suppose to do in the first place. Like playing DVD’s, MP3’s, older games that you have from the days of N64, SNES, Sega Genesis and many more as well as backing up your existing games. There is however one word of caution that I need to bring to your attention. Now some of you might think that this is obvious but bear with me as I do need to spell this out. If you borrow your friend’s game and you make a copy of it to play on your Wii that would be illegal. So please do keep this in mind.
This then brings me to another question that also pops up frequently and that is how to install Wii Homebrew. Luckily the answer to this question is very easy, all you have to do is to download the Wii Homebrew installer software and install it on your Wii by following the easy laid out instructions that they provide. When that is done you need to carefully read the provided instruction on how to use there software. No need to panic as I can ensure you they do tell you exactly what you need to do and that’s that, you will be enjoying your new found freedom in no time.
All and all I think this is a must have for all Nintendo Wii gamers, new or seasoned, that want to play DVD’s, MP3 or older games on their Wii. To find out more about Wii Homebrew please feel free to visit my Wii review site by clicking on the link below.
