Has anyone tried Feed My Wii? Seems to good to be true.

Seems to good to be true. If Nintendo sends out a software update will it brick my wii or remove feed my wii? Has anyone tried it? I can't seem to find concrete reviews online.

Oh dude, you're so going to get flagged for using an affiliate link in a post. Even if it's not yours.

It's obvious for fakesies: Something Awful muses about it.

Oops, should be despite what the site says...

Yes, you're probably paying $50 for a link to download FrostWire or some free application like that. There are tons of sites that do this. They're all scams.

From the bottom of the page:

"FeedMyWii.com does not provide a direct database for downloading. FeedMyWii.com provides members with the necessary software, tutorials & unlimited technical support for their downloading needs..."

Translates to:
Fifty bucks for a copy of Limewire and an FAQ.

Reeks of scam and an expensive link to a BitTorrent client. Plus, even legitimate video encodings for the Wii have to use the crap Motion JPEG codec for playability. Not worth your time.

Yep, totally voting for scam here. Simple rule is that if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Even if this had been legit, who has a Wii that has enough spare room left on it to download movies, games etc? I got like 2 blocks left.
