    A large percentage of Wii will never connect to the Internet. How is Nintendo going to update these standalone console?

    I don't see any point of modding a Wii in the US, as all the games and DVD's are out in the US first. However, modding is popular in Europe where games and DVD's are usually released 6 month late.

    If Nintendo has never implemented regional coding, then there is no need for modding.

    Be fined for what? Wishing someone luck? Way to think...

    By the way, I don't have a mod installed.

    To answer many questions:

    1. People Mod their Wii's so they can play copied / downloaded games. Only a small percentage Mod so they can play imports.

    2. I doubt any WiiChat stuff would report those who Mod their console, this would be far too much effort, plus it would be pretty anal.

    3. Nintendo could easily release a firmware update to counteract the Mod chip. However, I imagine if they do, it will be when Wii's are in high supply, thus forcing those who have Moded to purchase a new Wii.

    4. Those who do not have access to the Internet... well if Nintendo really wanted to, they could include the firmware update with one of their titles, say Metroid or Super Smash Brothers. I.e. If you want to play the game, the disc will first flash the firmware.

    5. I would Mod my Wii, but i) I am far too lazy too, and ii) I get free games anyway, so I have no real need to.

    Personaly, I think the likely hood of Nintendo releasing a Mod chip block firmware update are so slim that I wouldn't really worry about it. Nintendo seem to 'fluffy' to do anything agressive.

    so, an update.

    1. all my original games work
    2. the two US games I got cheap on Ebay now work
    3. I can play all my old SNES roms with an emulator without having to pay £5 a game on VC
    4. VC works fine as it always has done
    5. no change in internet browsing as far as I can tell
    6. I have ripped Zelda and Wario Smooth Moves, burned them back onto a DVD-R at 4X and they too work fine (so I don't just download games, I want to own the original but only use it once to backup, then it won't get scratched etc)
    7. I have downloaded SSX Blur and like it so much that i'm going to BUY it on Monday, I plan to do this with several games, if they suck they'll go in the bin, if you're good i'll actually go out and BUY THEM!
    8. As far as I know the modchip doesn't enable DVD playback but even if it did I doubt i'd use the Wii for that anyway, my £30 DVD player is far superior!

    You're never too old to Wii!

    Sounds really good, however I really do hope Nintendo release a firmware update to counteract the Mods......
