    You guys really deserve a slap in the face. You supposedly support Nintendo, wait for their product for years, praise them, etc then you buy stuff that completely kills some of their products? I think you should actually support them and not do stuff like this. You sit here and say how good they are and then completely stab them in the back. Just buy their stuff, or if you feel like it switch to another system, but stop bein such a'holes.

    Yeah I totally agree, and nintendo love to stop it going on which is good.
    Im guessing your talking about the mod chips? I personly dont think they will work I also think nintendo have the control to stop them through firmware, therefore you potentially destroy your Wii, which when it happens don't come crying back to nintendo :)

    This is the second time I'm posting to something like this. What if you want to buy a game that simply isn't released in your region? You can legitimately buy the imported game, support nintendo, but because you live in another region, you cannot play it?
    Nintendo could've made the Wii's region free, and then mod-chip's wouldn't be as popular. I do admit lots of people use them for illegal 'backups', but the fact remains, that is not their only purpose.
    Is it a 'stab in the back' to make homebrew software and run it on the wii? I don't think so, it simply gives individual programmers the freedom to experiment with new software. Look at the PC-Wiiremote scene, it's exploding because it can be tweaked with. It isn't harming nintendo at all, if anything it's better for them because they're selling wii-remotes to those without wii's!

    Edit: Typo

    You're being too general by using the term 'hacker'. You deserve a slap in the face. There are those who hack it for illegal purposes but there are those who aren't doing it for illegal purposes. it's not like every hacker wakes up and says, "I feel like screwing up Nintendo by making a uber 1337 haxxorz!!11!!". Many of them exploit the console and make it better than what currently shipped out as. For example, overclocking them, adding DVD functionality, and tons of other things to make the Wii even better than what it really was when it was in the box.

    And don't be jelous because they can do it and you can't. I envy them very much (for their skills, not their actions)

    For me it boils down to this....

    I purchased my Wii for my very young kids. I would love to be able to let them put in backups of the games I buy instead of destroying the originals. This is not different than what I do on the iMac they use. They dont even touch the originals. So the games last longer. I dont care about being able to watch DVD's. But being able to run homebrew software is always fun. Bootlegging is not always the reason for buying a mod chip. Thats like saying people should not be able to put a better engine in their car because they may speed. No one would agree to that, so why do people agree to the anti mod chip crap?

    Hackers....Hack on! I have already purchased 3 wii motes, 2 nun chucks, 3 nintendo gloves for the motes, (2) game cube controllers, (2) mario ddr pads, the system and (3) games. Never can anyone complain about my spending money with nintendo.

    As others said, not everyone who "hacks" is going to be pirating games. Some people want to make their product do other things Nintendo never thought of, or legitimetely want to use a backup of their game because their kids tend to destroy stuff (my friends 2 year old stuck a DVD into their VCR, which scratched the DVD like crazy, and was unusable).

    At my work place we use the term "hacker" to refer to our programmers. Hacker is not a "bad" term but it has been given a negative connotation.

    Hackers are the true innovators of technology. They take the basic stuff thats put out by the corporate world and turn it into something worth having. I say support the hackers! Hell where would Sony be if the "Hackers" did not make the mod chip for the original playstation? I am sure that at least 40 - 60% of the people that purchased it did so because they could get "Pirated" games. Sonies success had nothing what so ever to do with quality. The Sega Saturn and the Dreamcast were much better pieces of technology during the time.

    Once again...Hackers hack on:thumbsup:

    Thank you! I am 100% for unilligal (which looks like its not a real word and probably isn't. And spelt wrong anyway) hacking. Australians arent getting many of your American LAUNCH games until MARCH! I can;t wait that long for Trauma Centre/Excite Truck! And its CHEAPER to import it! But I don't support illegal copying of games :nono:

    most people are not knowledgeable about hacking.. they like to think of it as playing illegal backups. its way more then that. i would like to see glovepie ported to the wii i love messing with wiidrums and wiitar. things are just getthing better with all the wiimote hacks. people who dont even own a wii are even buying wiimote just for wiimote hacks. there are a lot of great homebrew creaters out there and i would like to see what the wii can truly do. so hack on.

    Also with the modchip hack, what's wrong with that if you are using it for a legal reason? And also, it's not like you can use the modchip without the Wii. So you can't not support Nintendo by buying a modchip because you have to buy a Wii before you can use the mod chip. So buy buying a Wii, you just gave Nintendo $80 or whatever Ninty profits from each system.

    I won't pirate any Wii games (maybe Gamecube but that won't affect Nintendo now)

    Other than that, I pirate all my PSP games.

    gamecubes arnt easy to hack.. took me a while and with time and cost.. atleast for the mini dvd version its almost not worth it to do it... now to put it on a full size dvd to play on the Wii it might be easier.. good luck finding a burning program to copy GC games though.. i only know of one... and it takes forever.. i am kinda suprised they went to the full size dvd.. but didnt bother to add dvd playing capabilities... im sure it wouldnt take much.. i understand why they didnt do it with game cube... except the panasonic version... just more cost to add something everyone has or can pick up for 20 bucks at any store.. i do like the SD card though that is awsome considering all my cameras and camcorders use SD cards and now i can add picture,music,and movie play onto my stereo system without having to burn it onto a dvd first...

    ? ok. This makes no sense dude. You dont even give an example of a hacker in your little rant.

    That is the only thing that you use to refer to what hackers are supposedly (according to you) doing to nintendo. It doesnt make sense.. you dont even say what these "hackers" are doing. The only thing I can think of that you mean is "hackers" buying mod chips that change the system. Well sorry but that isnt what a "hacker" is, hackers alter systems via internal programing. Using a modchip makes you a "modder" not a hacker. Thats two diffrent things. The only other meaning i can get from that quote is you think it is bad for people to praise nintendo then not buy their stuff... are you talking about buying third party products and not nintendos first party ones? That has Nothing to do with "hacking".

    Rand...

    The next time you want to go off about how you think people are "a'holes" (wtf) you need to leave a little more precise and educated form of crticisim. Right now... all that you've done is PMS like a little b*tch.

    Pull your tampon out long enough to make sense next time ok buddy? :thumbsup:
    peace.

    guys some people might want modchips to play games from another region, did you ever think about that maybe not all people that want to hack or want modchips are trying to rob nintendo of money. If nintendo had taken region locking off alot of people wouldnt bother with modchips and the like.
