    They don't necessarily need the war to end and for them to come out on top. If Nintendo can just win small battle after small battle and drag things out enough, it will further taint the reputation of mod chips. That alone will keep a good number of people from taking the mod chip route.

    Ideas generally have to work to be "great."

    On a side note it's already working with three modchips.

    Fudge you and shut up! You don't know how it is in places where gaming marketing ain't very big. Here where I live a game costs $100 each! And some even more. I had a modded Wii before because I didn't want to pay so much for just 1 game which can turn out a crappy game. (here we can't rent the games) and after a while (I had around 30 burned games) and got bored of them pretty much after playing them 10 minutes. Soo... I just sold it for the same cash I bought it ($400 It was a PAL) after all that experience I understood that modding just ain't for me but I still respect people who do it.
    So now I bought a NTSC Wii (american) for just $300 and the games are way cheaper + they get released in the USA WAAAAAAY faster then in Europe. So It's all good (only thing is needed a new AC but got that covered)
    Your Pro ,or your a noob - thats life

    I own a USA Wii (sold my EUR Wii) 2x Wii motes 2x Nunchucks

    Wasn't the first modchip for this system out a week after launch?

    Bootleg lockouts didn't exist until the Sega Saturn and even then some of the early models can play bootlegs. The Sega CD and TurboGrafx-CD can play bootlegs. They didn't worry about it then because home PCs didn't have CD burners. They still had region lockout(TGCD mostly due to the CD system card).

    Strangely, they didn't put much effort into the Dreamcast. What little protection it had against copies was circumvented without chipping. Early models could run unsigned code and later models... the DC disc burner programs add in the boot code. It's how they got homebrew to run.

    So, On one hand, I support the right of people to, under the purview of "I own the things I bought", mod-chip their consoles.

    But, on the other, I don't support doing so for the purpose of theft, which is what downloading games like that is.

    So, a decent effort on Nintendo's part, give it till mid-December, and the Modder's will have found a work around.

    Mid-december? A couple posts up someone stated that the mod chip development teams already found workarounds...

    i dont md or anything but i have known people who have. why you people think wii games are put in rom format is beyond me. the wii games are in ISO format. roms are easy to hack into(so ive heard). but you have to be really smart to hack a ISO and change its sucurity features.

    i dont think any of you have noticed but nintendo is also doing this with the DS games. phantom hourglass has this feature and so does donkey kong jugle climber. (my source: yahoo answers & other forums)

    Nintendo finally did something right that will end piracy.....but it has just started another war....the war of the Philipines and the places that games cost $80-150 per game which I feel their pain and I support those who do piracy on wii to get games since they cant afford them.
    Hey everyone it's me MRCOOLGH its been forever and a half since I came back on in fact its been at least a year and a half since I was here. Last time I visited Wiichat was 02-26-2008 and I'm gald to be back everyone!
