    FREELOADER FTW!!! That's technically not stealing games, only giving Australians a chance to play a game that America gets 2 years before us.

    Don't if you are going to update your Wii. The updates will kill the modchip and can disable your Wii so it won't owkr anymore. And you don't want to go out and find another Wii again.

    Well, I hope I won't get flamed for this, but I considered buying a modded Wii, and yes, it was mainly for the appeal of free games, but I didn't because I was scared I'd mess up a perfectly good Wii.

    I do, however, have a R4 for my Nintendo DS. If you don't know what a R4 is, it's sort of a modded game that allows you to stick in a micro SD card with games you can download online.... and I can honestly say, it was one of the best things I've ever bought. And I won't lie, I only actually own 6 of the games I've downloaded, but I'd say 90% of them aren't. If getting games was as easy on the Wii as the Nintendo DS, of course I'd get a modded Wii. I haven't touched half the games I have, but it's nice to know I still got a bunch of games I can play later.


    People are lying if they say they don't want free stuff or don't care about it. They just either can't do it, won't do it, or can't admit it.

    I agree if I happened to have 2 of the same console with one or both out of warrantee I would probably mod 1 for homebrew apps. $50 per game really isn't a lot of money to begin with, and I don't need many because Id rather beat the ones I own which tend to take some time, so having every game available doesn't appeal to me at all anyway. The only people I don't blame for stealing games are people who live in certain countries where the price for a game is equivalent to $100+ USD and they have to wait forever for games to be released where they are, just waiting isn't a big deal but when you have to wait for a game for 4 months or so more than the rest of the world and then pay double or triple the price then I can't really blame someone for just stealing it since Id probably do the same.
    So are there honest advantages to modding a Wii? Yes (however most people don't mod for those reasons or at least not only for those legal and honest reasons
    Is modding risky? Yes but not overly
    Is modding a bad idea? Well that really depends on you and what you'll be using it for. Also in case your Wii does somehow get bricked (or in some other way screwed up) do you have the money to buy a new one/will you be content not being able to play anything?
