Ever heard of the Ninja Team? If not, here’s a quick briefing, they are the subjects of quite a rumor floating around about the Wii and the ability to play “backup” games. There are claims that they have been able to develop a 5-point soldered ship that lets you play the games that you backed up because you knew they would get scratched sooner or later. Another theory is that these backups can be shared via Bittorrent (the more likely option). We’ve seen this happen on the PS1, PS2, Xbox, and the Xbox 360. It seems fairly suspicious that this hack has come out so soon, but it is far from impossible.
