View Full Version : Wii update stops Freeloader backwards compatibility

Nintendo has remained quiet about whether it will fix compatibility problems with third-party software Freeloader, after yesterday's Wii firmware update rendered it unusable.
The company reiterated to our sister site Eurogamer.net that because it isn't an official product approved by Nintendo, there was nothing it could do.
The Datel disc was originally manufactured for the GameCube, and allowed users to import titles from Japan or the US and play them on their PAL console.
Until yesterday, the software had the same effect on backwards-compatible GameCube games played on Wii.

You kid yourself if you think that Nintendo didn't do that on purpose.
