Why pay to download classic games from the Wii’s virtual console when you can run your own emulators for free?
Thanks to the Wii’s backwards compatibility with GameCube titles, you can boot up the GameCube flavor of Action Replay to launch SD Load, an application that lets you run any GC homebrew from an SD card.
On the GameCube you’ll need a separate SD reader, but on the Wii you can just use its own built-in SD slot.

I predict that within a matter of months we’ll use this boot method to install the Wii equivalent of the DS’s FlashMe – custom firmware that lets you run pretty much anything you want. It’ll happen. Just you wait.
