    For all you pathetic idiots that want to mod your wii, or any other consoles, computre, or anything. Here are some facts DO NOT MOD YOU NOOBS! Its wrong, its cheap, its costly, its illegal, and its stupid. If you can't pay a decent price for right things then don't game at all. For modders nintendo is releasing firmware very soon, you WILL get caught! It is 100 percent illegal in the US, UK, canada, japan, spain, colombia, france, Germany, UAE, and tons and tons of other places. More countires are getting ahold of their illegal piracy. Play safe, and fair people-or don't play at all.

    right now wii modchips are kinda pointless and used mainly for piracy but people do buy them so they dont have to use their original discs or so they can play imports. i for one have (well had, it broke :( ) a modded xbox. it is the best thing ive ever done to it. i was able to backup all 18 of my games and didnt need to keep swapping out games. also i was able to mod games like halo2 to give it more on a halo1 feel (Halo2:Combat Evolved Mod for the xbox!!) and mod halo1 to have some awsome user created maps. also modding was never illegal. the only thing that is illegal about modding is being able to play pirated games. the rest IS NOT illegal

    Its a good thing that the trillion dollar video game industry has your help in catching these vile criminals. I turned in my roomate for pirating Madden 04, and a van drove up to my crib with the EA logo on the side of it. Men in black suits and sunglasses kicked in my door, told me to "go for a walk" and proceeded to pull out my roomate's braces with needle nose plyers. Thats what he gets. (get a life).

    Psh, I don't really care about this crap. I need the money more than whoever I pirate **** from. I don't mod my consoles or anything but usually if I can get something for free there is no way I am going to pay for it. If I legally paid for all of my music it would have cost me thousands of dollars. There are also some things that I would buy if they were priced reasonably, such as PhotoShop, and Windows Vista. I also have some news for you, I probably won't ever get caught.

    Ha ha, you don't think it takes money to develop photoshop and vista? Now, I agree they get overpaid, but getting it for free?

    You don't (I hope) drive away after filling up your car with gas. And oil companies are posting record profits. Why would you do that to companies? I hope you all are studying to go be programmers or music artists or something. That way you'll be screwed.

    @ conan, if that story isn't a load of bullcrap, credz to you.

    Piracy is what makes the internet go around. If you don't like it get off the internet. And you should really stop using the word mod, you can mod consoles and Pc's with out doing anything to the way they run. Do you remember Napster and all the other P2P programs that blew up and made the internet what it is today. People like you are now trying to limit the internet in every aspect. It is really sad.

    Ya it does take money to develop them but not that much, especially Vista which hardly has anything new besides Aero that just uses up all your system resources and makes it look pretty. That and your just giving your money to Bill Gates who is already rich of his ass. About the filling up your car thing, I probably would if I could get away with it. I actually do want to do something with programming though.

    i dont know where you heard that but that is 100% wrong (not the bricking part, just how it happens). the wiis get bricked when a game from a diffrent region trys to update a diffrent region system (like a PAL game updating an NTSC game or vice versa). i feel sorry for the people that have bricked wiis that actually bought the import but i dont for the people who downloaded the game

    from my knowledge, your correct also. Not sure if I maybe read it wrong but yea the games is what triggers the bricking. Where did I read about the device... hmm.. Also, Not sure how enforced it is, or if they really are doing it that much because I live in US. so its kinda hard for me to keep up the news. lol I still feel bad for little timmy. I know im never going to have that trouble. No mods for me.

    correct me if im wrong but didnt bill gates steal ideas from apple? hmm i guess that was ok because well technically it wasnt illegal? where do you draw the line there? if i download a TV show that is broadcasted thru the air for free(nbc,abc,fox) is that stealing?

    as far as the oil prices, shrubs fault.

    All Illegal Activity Is Necessary..... For Me.

    I don't mod my consoles (not since the spring device on the PS1 because that was easy as pie)

    But I do commend all illegal activity that reminds these HUGE corporate companies to remember that they cannot rip us off.

    If you take the example of UK television, look how many stations are now creating their own ON DEMAND websites, they have realised that people just download or even stream these programmes in their own time, So now these companies want a slice of their own action, but realise they cannot charge for it, because people like me will just use Peekvid or something similar.

    No one FORCES you to mod your machine and unless you know japanese, the benefits aren't all that great. All those games on your Xbox? How many did you really actually play.

    In closing,the fact that there are criminals afoot, keeps it affordable for the 100% legal taxpaying person like myself.
