Looks like Datel is opening up the doors for homebrew on the Wii. This is very exciting news to the scene. While all of what you see is only able to launch homebrew in gamecube mode, it is still a great step in the right direction to bring homebrew to the mainstream. Where previously you needed to order strange products from questionable e-tailors, now you can just walk into your local ebgames to get the tools you need for homebrew on your wii or gamecube.
Here's what codejunkies posted on their website:
There's a wealth of really excellent home brew material out there for the GameCube, but how do you get it to run on your happening console? Our GameCube/Wii SD Media Launcher has the answer...
With GameCube/Wii SD Media Launcher, you can run all your home brew Cube software on an unmodified GameCube, or on a Nintendo Wii in GameCube Mode. All you need to do is download the program of your choice from one of the many web pages dedicated to amateur programming on the Cube (Google for 'GameCube home brew' to find dozens of sites). Drag and drop it onto the 1GB or 2GB SD card supplied with the Media Launcher, then plug it into your Wii or GameCube. Launch the application CD on your console and the home brew program is run from there. Easy!
Everything you need is in the box. The pack includes a software CD, 1GB or 2GB high-speed SD card, a USB SD card adapter and an SD media adapter to fit in your Cube's memory card slot.This will be in stores very soon for about $50. For more information visit the official site codejunkies.
