Wii emulator so accurate you can buy games from the Wii Shop Channel
 

 
Third-party emulation has always been a dicey issue for hardware and software manufacturers alike as it offers access to content people may not legally own, but that's about to change in the case of Wii emulator Dolphin, which has become so adept at emulating Nintendo's decade-old console that it can access the official Wii Shop Channel and directly purchase games from Nintendo.


As for the benefits of Dolphin, it upscales Wii games into HD resolutions, whereas the console itself was beholden to 480p. Now you can play games like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario Galaxy, or Xenoblade Chronicles in a way that looks more glorious than ever.

Purchasing online games isn't the only new breakthrough the Dolphin has achieved, as it can now allow players to export data onto an SD card, just like a real Wii.

It's worth noting that while the Dolphin works with Nintendo's first-party shop, it's still not officially given Nintendo's blessing.

There's still a little rigmarole in setting up the Dolphin, but there's some handy guides out there to get you started. In short, we finally have a way to play Wii games in HD without skirting the legally grey terrain of software piracy. And they look beautiful.

i have dolphin. it can do wii, & gamecube as well. unfortunately my computer isn't fast enough to play games without crazy latency delay

i'm restricted to N64/PS1 and under (w/ a separate emulator), but for better builds dolphin is def worth a download

i can connect my PS4 controller to my computer and play whatever

what a time to be alive

Dope concept, unfortunately I doubt anyone is gonna buy a game this way seeing as how if Nintendo do decide to shut it down one day all your sh*t will presumably be gone.

Nice idea at legitimizing the emulator though.
