    If you've got a hefty hankering for a totally unverifiable Wii hack on video, complete with a horrible soundtrack and shaky-cam cinematography, then boy do we have a present for you. YouTube's finest, a certain pimmysays, has uploaded just such a video, and is making the notable claim of hacking the Wii to run game backups. Just like the rest of these fools do, pimmy's video quality is horrible, and there could easily be a cut at 1:16 -- or just about anywhere else, for that matter -- where pimmy could've stopped the camera and swapped in an actual Zelda disc instead of that burned DVD the video shows being loaded at the first. Luckily, we won't have to wait too terribly long to find out: pimmy is promising "something special" on New Years, implying an unveil of the hack for all to see. We're not holding our breath. Peep the video after the break.

    If this is legit i cant wait but im not convinced yet because i have seen many videos about this looks crazy but i also saw videos of stumping some peoples ways of "hacking" the wii.

    Hmm, it's hard to tell when the 'hacker' hasn't released anything, although it may be true.

    it could be true indeed, wouldn't hold my breath though. hopefully it will be possible to run homebrew sooner or later, that'd be fun

    Yep, I agree with you guys. The proof is in the pudding as they say, and no one's served up dessert quite just yet.
