    lol, good idea Nintendo. Assholes who steal games deserve this. the only people who should have modded Wiis are the ones who pay the equivelent to $100.00 for a game (forget what country that is) cause thats just rediculous!

    Yea its a great idea but wont work. They will just find a way around it or mod the game
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    i say that this is fantastic! GO NINTENDO!!!

    I've always had the mentality that if u want something u have to work for it. I own over 300 dvds and a shitload of nintendo games and they are all legit copies.

    People that "steal" any kind of media - whether it be games, music or films, only hurt us honest people more because the companies that make and produce these things still need to make a profit and if they are losing money then the prices all go up on us.

    I surely hope Mario Galaxy does have this blocker. And if someone does find a way around it then whatever, Nintendo will just create another one for Brawl and another one for the next big game to come out, and so on and so forth. It'll piss the pirates off more than anything - i'm pretty sure nintendo are smart enough to know they cant stop it completely. I am in total support of them.
    What i've got so far: Wii, Wii Sports, Wii Play, LoZ: TP, Marvel: UA, Rampage: Total Destruction, WSOP: ToC, Excite Truck, TMNT Wiimote x2, Nunchuck x2, Classic Controller, Fan/Neon Lights, Wiimote Charger, Skins - Blue, Black, Pink, Green, Component Cables, Trial Opera Browser & Classic Games: DK Country, SimCity, Super Mario Bros., Kid Icarus, Super Mario World, Street Figher II, Castlevania IV, Zelda: LttP

    It will still take a while until people have hacked the rom enough to be able to find out how to disable the protection.

    Also remember, no modchip is currently able to play homebrew software, so modded roms may not work either.

    Anyone stupid enough to try to play legit software on a machine capable of playing burned discs deserves their Wii bricked. But then again, I highly doubt anyone with that little intelligence would know how to install a mod chip in the first place.

    EDIT: You don't do anything to the game with a mod chip. All it does is bypass ROM data inside the Wii.

    I know how they work, I have modded many consoles.

    At least Ninty arnt as vigilante as Microsoft when it comes to modding. Modded 360's can be detected over the internet and recieve a permenant ban (account and serial) from xbox live.

    Old PS1 titles did this with modchip detection, which is why new modchips had to be made.

    Even the SNES had games like this... later titles would refuse to boot if th elockout chip was disabled, necessitating installing a switch to turn it back on for those games. Then the lovely PAL/NTSC detection which would require another switch.

    The Genesis, that was different. Sega was cheap and used the same hardware board for all regions, with a soldered trace over 2 jumpers, language, and TV signal. Cut the traces and install switches to complete the connection, and flip them for a region change.

    I'm not in full support of region lockouts to begin with. I can understand PAL/NTSC hassles to a degree(though the factthe slim NES 2 will play Euro NES games is a good sign this is a non-issue as the TV output is handled by the console, not the game) but not language. Handheld systems lack these region lockouts completely.
