Nintendo updates your Wii system in some way every time you download a VC game or go on the internet. Nintendo will find a way to defend against homebrew attempts just as Sony is doing for the PSP and PS3.
I'm all for homebrew but like I said in another thread, I'll wait for a usb device exploit to pop up.
I don't feel it, I'll probably wait a bit before buying it
Not really. The description says it supports DVD+R and DVD-R, two formats of DVDs. That is, you can burn games to DVDs with your PC and play them on your Wii, as the hardware was designed to do.Originally Posted by cannon
No where does it say it can magically make your Wii into a DVD player. Exactly how would this work? Would the chip magically add a DVD channel to the list?
do you guys not have a dvd player god i mean the rest of the stuff sounds nice but you guys seem to make a big deal that it plays dvds. and yeah i would be scared nintendo would make my wii not be able to play online. and well if i want to play GC back ups and homemade games and imports i will just mod my gc
Can't wait to see if all this is true and if so if it's tough to install

I haven't used a Modchip since I installed one in my PS1, and I don't think I will install one now unless my Japanese skills GREATLY improve within the lifespan of the Wii.
Also, I have more than enough DVD players already, even if it would be a great addition to the Wii's abilities.

Actually, it's quite simple. The drive's chip has a firmware built into it that tells what its capabilities are. In this case we already know that the wii can read DVD type media, so it is possible for it to read DVDs. The only thing missing is the coding for it. As time passes newer hacks will get released, such as homebrew loaders. Someone will eventually release a program that will allow them to be viewed. Thanx.Originally Posted by PotatoWedgie
