    Wii Modchip, I need answers

    Hi everyone, I have been thinking about getting a Modchip put in my Nintendo Wii but was wondering if it changes anything? can u still download VC games and can u still play people online? Also if you Modchip the Wii can u still only play region coded games and is there any chance of the console breaking or freezing if it has a Modchip in it?

    The modchip basically allowes you to play games from different regions, But if your Wii breaks your messed because your not supposed to open up the console

    Why not just play region games, I mean is it that hard to wait for a game to come out in your region...

    No its not hard I could easily wait just thinking about getting it done for cheaper games.

    Does it put the console at risk thats what I'm wondering?

    Not really,
    But if it breaks, By putting the chip in you void your warranty and you won't be able to get a replacement,
    But no, No harm should be done if it's installed correctly

    Depends on the chip really. Most will let you play non-region but there are still some issues between PAL and NTSC. I've heard that playing a PAL game on a chipped Wii will brick it. But Japanese NTSC games play just fine on a modded Wii.

    My recomendation is stay to your local format (NTSC or PAL) and you'll be fine. There are some chips claiming to allow PAL on NTSC systems, but i'm not willing to be the beta tester on that for 250 bucks.

    jan22, all I can say is read up on it. The mods mean you are opening the case and soldering wires to between 5 and 9 different points. If you can't do that, don't even consider it unless you go to a dealer willing to do it for you.

    Beyond getting it in, it's unlikey Nintendo will have a way to brick your console for having it because as is notes in this thread, the chip only adds data to the stream coming from the disc to make the disc appear as an original. It does not do anything to the bios itself the way xbox mods do, which make them detectable by xbox live updates. Even still, if Nintendo tries to make the chip not work, most allow you to either update them (to get around said "fix') or to simply shut them off.

    Do your homework though. You need to know what you're doing.

    and BTW, you should be buying these games and backing them up. Stealing all your games online only means game prices go up for the rest of us who pay for them. Thats how new and better games get developed.

    As soon as you open up the console, you will void your warranty. If anything happens to the console after that point, you are completely on your own. Just a word of warning.

    Joe_Duffy: Even an NTSC game from Japan could potentially brick a Wii from the US if the firmware update on the game disk was newer than the firmware on your Wii.
    If you are careful with what code you run then the modchip is completely safe.
