The bad news: Yes, the latest Wii Update has blocked the Gamecube and any future Wii Freeloaders. Bad news for us Europeans then. Also, it's rendered most modded Wii's unusable as Nintendo warns those who have modded their Wii before updating. If you don't update your Wii, you can't play newer releases. But here's the bright side. Have you ever been confused as to why so-and-so has so many points on the leaderbaord yet has only played 2-3 matches on Strikers Charged? Then there's the Action Replay and other tools to hack games for cheating online play. It's a nightmare on games like Metroid Prime Hunters and Mario Kart DS. The good news: these latest updates block these hacking tools, goodbye crappy n00by hackers, hello REAL online gamers! The best news: if there IS a new hacking device set out to ruin gamers, then Nintendo can regularly update Wii's to block these updates! Cool huh? Discuss!
