Copying Wii Games: Is It Really Important?
on February 16, 2011 at 05:32 AM
A lot of unfortunate things can happen to a Wii game disk. While is hard to calculate the full cost of every mishap in life, you can easily figure out what it will cost you if you damage or lose one your Wii games. It will cost you the full face value of that particular game to replace it. Again. It will also cost you time and gas money to make a trip to the game store. It may even cost you some friends, when they find out they can't come over and play their favorite game anymore. You may think �Who needs them!� But the truth is, you at least need your gaming buddies so you can have someone to compete against, and ultimately rub it in when you kick their butt all over the screen. You can avoid all this hassle by learning how to copy Wii games. Imagine this: you take just a few minutes of your time to research some software that will burn replicas of your game disk for you. Once you find an application that looks promising, you pay a one-time fee, and download it. Once installed, you start making copies of all your games. These programs will usually remove the copyright encryption for you automatically, so the copying can be completed without error. You can then stow away or lock up the master copies of your game, to ensure that your friends or siblings don't get their grubbly little hands on them. They don't need to be disturbed ever again, unless you need to make another copy. Once your originals are put away for safe-keeping, you can use the copies of your disks for general, every day game play. You don't have to be super-concerned about them being scratched or stolen, because they are ridiculously cheap and easy to replace. When you buy a case of disks, the cost of a single disk is negligible. At the very least, nowhere near the price of a new, packaged game disk to replace the one you didn't take the proper precautions with. Just as example, let's imagine a few scenarios that might cause you to replace a disk. One, the disk could be scratched, scraped, or scuffed. This happens quite easily, sometimes incidentally through everyday wear-and-tear. It could also get misplaced � under a sofa, coffee table, or game center. It could be stolen, otherwise known as being permanently borrowed by a buddy who conveniently forgot to tell you her borrowed it. Or, it could be outright ruined or destroyed, which can happen if it's stepped on or left near a hot furnace. Considering these scenarios and how common they are, wouldn't it be much cheaper and easier to burn back up disks of your games, rather than fretting and wasting money on new disks to replace the originals? If you aren't convinced that you need to learn how to copy Wii games, test this theory out for yourself, and see how long it takes before you're sick of blowing your paycheck on replacement disks.
