A number of our visitors have sent us emails to various sources stating that the creators have working Wii Emulators. We’d like to thank all of you for the time you have taken to send us these tips!
So, are they real?
As with most things when something sounds too good to be true it probably is. A claim that there exists a 100% working Wii Emulator, seemingly out of nowhere, when there is no fully working GameCube Emulator yet definitely sounds too good to be real. Especially when the person who claims to have created it has no known background in the emulation scene.
Video of “Working” Wii Emulator
Most of the “Emulators” we have seen look like (PIP) Picture in Picture or TV tuner cards running a real Nintendo Wii. One such example came from reader Ben, who sent us a link to a video on youtube, of a Wii Emulator. The video shows the Wiimote working menus and games on the computer.
If you take a closer look you’ll notice that in the video the windows XP theme is set to the old windows 98 style but curiously the Wii Emulator window frame seems to be a blue color and has no header. This suggests that either the emulator was created to look like that or the more logical answer is that the Emulator is just a Wii hooked up to a pc monitor running PIP (Picture In Picture). We were further inclined to disbelieve the emulator when we posted a comment to the video which was soon after deleted.
With that said we wont deny any of the stories out there but rather we’ll let you be the judge.
