    Nintendo Aware Of Mod Chips

    Perhaps you are not familiar with mod chips, but nevertheless we would like to draw your attention to some important information.

    Modification microchips (mod chips) circumvent the security embedded into Nintendo's products. To install a mod chip into a Nintendo hardware system, it is necessary to dismantle the product and, in some instances, remove components.

    The use of mod chips voids the manufacturer's warranty. In addition, the installation of a mod chip can damage the functionality of a Nintendo console, sometimes rendering it incapable of repair. Mod chips have been adjudicated to be illegal in various countries around the world, including the Unites States, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. Most European countries have also already adopted laws prohibiting the circumvention of technological measures for copyright protection. People caught installing or selling mod chips may be subject to criminal charges.
    This is taken from the Nintendo Of Europe official site, this shows that they are aware of them and they are warning us, to me it seems like they are in full control and are warning us before they inforce updates that screw up your system. That's my opinion on what they should do.

    Yeah, I personly wouldn't bother getting a Mod Chip in any console that connects to the internet, simply because they are always in control.

    I haven't modded any console that I have bought and I don't intend to begin anytime soon.

    It's not so much that, I'm letting the people who think that Nintendo don't know about them also the people that think they can get away with it and the people that are looking into modding their Wii that Nintendo are aware and that you should think twice before modding because I think they are in full control of ou Wii with online updates + Games that they release can also update your system I believe (like on PSP).

    I think they knew of this from the beginning. The system updates are a great way to ensure that your modded wii gets screwed over.

    Yeah I think they have to always be aware of companies trying to help users scam the "system" to proft themselves. However not they have released this statement, as I have said I think it' warning and wanted to post it here.

    I am assuming its a future event. "It will happen unless people stop modding" sort of thing.
