Note that currently there are no fully working Wii Emulators eside for the one supplied with the Nintendo Revolution devolpment kits that were sent out to Nintendo licensed developers.This Nintendo made Wii emulator for testing games has not been leaked or made ublicly awailable do to strict Non-disclosure clauseses in Nintendo contracts. This emulator togather with Hardware emulatiors is used for testing Wii roms that are in production. But the best known homebrew Dolphin GC emu has been evolving into a Dolphin Wii.

About Emulators in general

A software emulator allows computer programs to run on a platform (computer architecture and/or operating system) other than the one for which they were originally written. Unlike simulation, which only attempts to reproduce a program's behavior, emulation attempts to model to various degrees the state of the device being emulated. High-level emulation uses a combination of the two approaches in an attempt to retain as much accuracy as possible while having the advantages of simplicity and speed provided by simulation.

A hardware emulator is an emulator which takes the form of a hardware device. Examples include printer emulators inside the ROM of the printer, and FPGA-based emulators.

A popular use of emulators is to mimic the experience of running arcade games or console video games on personal computers and new generation consoles like Wii Xbox and PlayStation 2. Emulating roms on modern desktop computers is usually less cumbersome and more reliable than relying on the original machines, which are often old and hard to find, let alone repair.

In a theoretical sense, the Church-Turing thesis implies that any operating environment can be emulated within any other. In practice, it can be quite difficult, particularly when the exact behavior of the system to be emulated is not documented and has to be deduced through reverse engineering. It also says nothing about timing constraints; if the emulator does not perform as quickly as the original hardware, the emulated software may run much more slowly than it would have on the original hardware, or it may run too fast to be usable.

Nintendo has stated that Wii will be backward compatible with all GameCube software and most peripherals. This backwards compatibility is achieved through a set of ports on top of the console concealed by a panel. There are four GCN controller ports and two GCN memory card slots as there were on the GameCube itself, so the GameCube microphone should be compatible, as well as the GameCube-GameBoy Advance cable. There is no indication that the Wii has the high-speed port of the original GameCube, which means that unless otherwise indicated, the GameBoy Player (which required this port) will not be compatible with the Wii. This also means that in part functionality of the Wii is already emulated with GC emulators like: Nintendo Dolphin - Dolwin - Gcube and WhineCube.

Virtual Console is t Described (by CEO Satoru Iwata) as “the video game version of Apple’s iTunes music store”, the service will feature classic titles from past Nintendo consoles (from the NES to the SNES and N64) as well as from formerly competing systems, such as the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16. Virtual Console may also offer new and original content from independent developers. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has indicated that new small-scale titles could be developed and sold through the Virtual Console at a price of between ¥500 and ¥1000 (approximately US$4-$9, GB£2-£5), and that free downloads may be offered as a bonus with the purchase of specific Wii titles. This part of Wii - that is Virtual Console can already be emulated on PC. Here we have a list of emulators for each VC system that are already working on PCs
