Wii Backup Disc

by on Jun.11, 2010, under Wii

There was a time when it was really very difficult to backup Nintendo Wii disks. Lots and lots of game enthusiasts search all over the Internet to get instruction on how to copy Wii disks. Play Homebrew, Backup and Import Games on your Wii Without Voiding the Warranty. To their dismay they do not get the answers that they need. All they get as an answer is that it is virtually impossible to back up Nintendo Wii games unless you are into piracy. If you want to learn how to copy Wii disks, read on and find out what the materials you need and what you need to do.

The first thing that you need if you want to learn how to copy Wii disks is a DVD-ROM that can read and backup Nintendo Wii games. Always remember this because this is very important. Not all DVD-ROM drives can copy Wii games. If you purchased the wrong DVD-ROM drive, you will not be able to proceed further.

Once this tool is available, you need to have the following programs in your computer: Rawdump 2.0, WIN RAR, and net Framework 2.0. From the Raw Dump program, you need to extract the contents of the original disk. This program will need the assistance of the WIN RAR application to compress the file. The first process can take a few hours to complete. Extracting files from an original disc takes too long so you might want to watch television first.

Once the files have been extracted and compressed, you may now burn the disc as you normally would for other files. Once the burning process is complete, you now have a backup disc that is ready to be used. You may now store the original disc in its case and just use the backup file. This way, you will not worry even if it gets scratched because you already have a back up file.

Where to Look for a Cheap Wii Remote Controller

by on May.30, 2010, under Wii

If you have a Nintendo Wii then you will probably want to buy a cheap Wii remote. You will have already got a Wii remote when you purchased your system, but having another one will enable you to play games with other people alongside you, instead of just playing on your own.

Buying a Wii remote is not difficult, but I am sure you would rather buy a cheap Wii remote, instead of paying the full price for it. So where do you start? You could look around different gaming shops and try to find the cheapest deal. However you will probably find that there is not a lot of difference in the price. The place to look for a bargain is Ebay or some other auction site.

When purchasing off an auction site such as Ebay there are somethings that you need to watch out for. The most important aspect is to research the person you are buying from. This will entail, how long the person has been selling for and how many satisfied customers that the person has had. This is easily done as Ebay provides the information that you require.

It is going to be better to buy from someone who has been selling for a year or more and has had lots of positive reviews. This will mean that the person is a serious seller, and has built up a reputation for reliability. No seller wants to have negative reviews on their account, as this would affect future transactions.

If you make the choice to buy a cheap Wii remote from a seller who has only recently started selling and only has a few reviews, or a seller who is selling a Wii remote for a slightly higher price but has a good record, then it may be worth your while to opt for the second seller. I am not saying the first seller will be unreliable, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Another good idea would be to purchase a skin to go along with your cheap Wii remote. The skin goes over your Wii remote and prevents it from leaving your hand like a missile. So in conclusion, don’t bother buying another Wii remote from a conventional store, you’d be better off taking the time to search on-line auction sites like ebay. Doing this will not only allow you to purchase a cheap Wii remote, it will save you money that you can put towards games.

The History of the Nintendo Wii

by on May.02, 2010, under Wii

Lorna Goldsborough asked:

The vision for the Nintendo Wii was in the works as early as 2000. However, the public didn’t get a taste of the concept until mid 2004. The goal of Nintendo with this product was to revolutionize the home gaming console industry. Many consumers were very excited about the ideas but some worried that they wouldn’t be able to materialize.

Those doubts were soon cast aside though when Nintendo revealed their concept for the wireless controller at a show in Japan in 2005. In late 2006 The Nintendo Wii was in high demand. In fact, stores couldn’t get enough of them to fill the demands for the holidays. Many people were paying thousands of dollars for them on eBay and other online auction sites. There were also plenty of charity fundraisers selling high volumes of tickets due to the prize being a Nintendo Wii.

The road to such success was one that took many twists and turns though. In 2001 Nintendo released the GameCube. It was quite successful but the researchers for the company felt that so much more could be accomplished due to the technology we have available. As the same time the Nintendo DS was being finalized. Many of the concepts of these two early works though are a crucial part of the overall design of the Nintendo Wii.

It took the visions of both developers, programmers, and engineers to get the Nintendo Wii that we love today to take shape. They had a variety of concepts they needed to implement. First, they needed to make it affordable or people weren’t going to buy it no matter how good it was. Nintendo make it known from the start they wanted the Wii to be family oriented. Therefore it had to be offered at a price that the average family could afford to buy it.

Next they wanted to go beyond the basics of playing video games. They wanted to give players a chance to be a part of the game. This was different from simply enjoying playing the game. Being able to use the right tools and accessories would make a huge difference in this area. A great deal of effort was put into offering very realistic movements and graphics to allow this to happen.

Last but not least they wanted the games to be fun and interactive. They wanted parents to be willing to buy this type of gaming console without worrying that their kids would become inactive in other aspects by playing it all the time. They wanted to make sure people of all ages were going to be able to have a great time using it as well.

The name of the Wii was changed many times before it was released. One of the top names that was considered was Revolution. However, the executives of the Wii had a worldwide vision for this home gaming console. Therefore, they wanted a name that would be simple to pronounce in any given language.

Since the goal of the company was to offer something that everyone could enjoy, using the word WE in it was something that many people loved. The spelling of it was changed though to give it a more distinct element that would be connected to the Nintendo brand in the minds of consumers from all over the world. This is a marketing strategy that certainly was worked out well for Nintendo.

No one can question the success of the Nintendo Wii though. It has won many different awards in the few years it has been on the market. Since September of 2007 it has been the top selling home gaming console. Even though other companies are trying to copy the standards that Nintendo has set they haven’t been able to generate the same consumer following.

The Nintendo Wii was just released in both China and South Korea in 2008. There are plans to launch it in Morocco and the Philippines later this year or in early 2009. This is due to customer demands from those regions. Many people there already have them but they have been paying a premium price for them on the black market.
