    The line-up of content stored on your SD card is visible once you click a new "SD" icon in the bottom left of the Wii system software homepage, with up to 20 pages (240 titles) to fill.
    Good for some of the older NES & N64 games

    Running games from an SD card... Just seems like they've dropped their guard, here come the pirates. And not the nice kind like me, I'm talking the dirty robbin' thievin' kind.

    Pirates have been doing things like this for a long time already though!

    Well, you can run them from an external hard drive now too according to some sites, and it isn't a new thing, just more 'mainstream' now you can use SDHCs in the Wii

    That will make getting games a lot easier, but pirates will probably have the time of their life now unless Nintendo has some surefire way to protect against it.
