    The One Reason for the Wii Delay

    Nintendo is attempting to block Wii modchips in newest console revision.

    Link: http://www.digitimes.com/systems/a20070327PD201.html

    In Taiwan, 80% of the Wii's are sold with modchips. Nintendo is running scared.

    Same thing happened to PSP's, Sony scrapped everything already in the production lines to make a new revision of the motherboard in order prevent the downgrader working.

    Interesting. So they are already sold with the Wii, does that mean they cost more in Taiwan?

    They can do that with firmware. Modchips are illegal in the US, UK, and canada where i think mostly everyone here is from. Modding ia for noobs. -_- Still thats cool, nintendo and other gaming companies have bin attacking piracy hard latly, which i like. Modders deserve to die. >

    Street price in Taiwan for a modded Wii is about $300 - $350 with the Wii Key modchip.

    Modchips aren't illegal. If you are using them to play illegal games then they are but just having a modchip to play backups isn't illegal in the US.

    I wouldn't say this is the "one" reason, but one of a few, Main reason I know of was it was nearing the end if the Fiscal year for nintendo, that's all
