    i see the point about waiting for games

    Here in Aus we are still waiting for elebits (eledees false rumor) other countrys have had this game for months
    it really puts us behind the eight ball

    for example if we get the really popular online games (ps3 or xbox) months after the rest of the world it makes it really difficult to be competative as we are up against players that have been playing for months

    thats my rant

    Homebrew is a term given to a game or piece of software that has been been developed by an individual user or team - independant of any officially licensed development team.

    The legalities of using Modchips vary from Country to Country, but being that their main purpose is to allow consoles to boot and run copied games does put them very much in a grey area. Also i think that some Modchips contain bios code that is copyrighted - im not too sure though.

    At least that's how i understand it.
    Yeah basically they're intended for the burning of Wii Games.
    I've also heard rumors of people burning Game Cube games like this and turning them into Wii DVD style discs instead of the smaller ones.



    Well do you?

    Yes, some gamers will copy games they don't own. DEAL WITH IT. Theres nothing you can do about it. That being said, I don't think it should be condoned (ie its still not acceptable).

    The real point of the matter, this is how programmers are able to learn and create homebrew games and applications. Ever check the cost of a dev system, let alone simply getting authorized to own one. Note that these coders could be the same programmers who (while young now) could grow up to make the next-next-next gen video game that you enjoy playing.

    Yes, modchip's are beneficial and harmful, but in two completely separate ways.
