Most of the people who mod chip their wii's, usually have very little care for the current laws. Almost the equivalent of how underage drinkers care when they are at a party getting wasted for a good portion of their youth. As for the ability to brick wii console's over the chip, I don't know details about the chip itself, but I highly doubt it is going to go away. If in the crazy event that Nintendo bricks a wii, then wouldn't it be worth the $250 to get a new one modded to play your $1000+ game collection you have copied?Originally Posted by lasher702
For the most part your firmware theory is completely based off crap you pulled out of nowhere. Until it actually happens, you can't say "I told you so".
