Wii Homebrew Dev Tool & Game Ripper – USB Gecko

Here’s an odd device I’ve heard nothing about until today, the USB Gecko. Basically I think of it like the old school Phantasy Star Online hack for the Gamecube. I couldn’t tell exactly what it is pushing, full Wii hardware access or Gamecube acces. Since most emulators and such are Gamecube dependant I’m thinking GC at the moment. It does have some great features such as the ability to rip games straight from the Wii instead of using the specific LG DVD-Roms that are now since discontinued. Also it has a pause game and screenshot utility that can help anyone without a DVD-R who likes to review games. This little device looks promsing.
