    With firmware update 3.0, didn't they just add the functionality to stop some of the existing modchips from working?

    I don't think they've specifically disabled any modchips with the firmware update, but they did have to post a warning message with an update about "modified consoles", because modifications could (although not sure how likely it is) cause some unexpected behaviour and do bad things when updating via firmware.

    I do, however, fully expect them to make attempts to disable modchips in future updates, no matter how fruitless these efforts will ultimately be. Sadly, it seems that they will also be able to lock out any cool tricks that the Freeloader will use IF it's ever released.....

    you need a mod chip! Would not recommend it though... See some of the other threads as to why!

    Google it...Freeloader no longer works after the new update. The different mod chips are unfortunately I guess about to be useless as well before long. Think of all the money the core of the gaming industry loses as a result of them. Plus there was just a major bust on the mod chip industry because of the illegal side of them. The feds seem to be really cracking down. Might have to stick with what you have wiigotdawii.

    ...apart from the Gamecube disk swap trick. That works for multi region Gamecube games on the Wii....

    It's a disc that you put into your Wii, then take it out, put in the game from a different region, and then you can play it. It's the alternative for people that don't want to mod their consoles.

    Yeah, Nintendo is really cracking down on modding now. It's interesting to see how far they'll go.

    Freeloader allows you to play region locked games on the Gamecube, but this no longer works on the Wii after the last update. Maybe if you don't wanna utilize the extra features Nintendo has added to the Wii since release and will probably be adding in the future it will still work. You can also get it for use on the Gamecube if you still have the old cube itself.

    You just simply buy another Wii of the relevant region in order to by pass your region locking related issues. It's as easy as that!

    Probably because Sony and Microsoft does a much better job of stopping it then Nintendo can, atleast in the US. There are modded 360's and PS3's, it's just that with a modded 360, you wouldn't be able to take advantage of online because you'd be banned. Not sure with Sony, since online is free. Here in southeast Asia, different story. I'm in Indonesia, and I couldn't buy a non-modded console even if I wanted to. Wii, PS3, 360....there all modified over here. The person I purchased my wii from couldn't tell me/didn't know what mod chip was in mine.

    I highly doubt Nintendo will seriously "crack down" on modded systems. They may make certain updates which brick modded wii's, but I doubt it's their sole intent. Their not anal like Microsoft is. I've done system/firmware updates on my wii before. Everything is still running fine.

    Bringing up old threads = :/

    There are plenty of people modding 360s. You don't even need a modchip, you can just flash some custom firmware onto your DVD drive. But it requires constant updating to avoid being banned from Live, which sucks ass.

    The PS3 isn't being modded much because nobody has unimaginably expensive Blu-ray burners, and it isn't feasible to download and store 60GB isos.

    Gaming, music and movie industry - Listen up !!!!!!

    it is both annoying and frustrating when it comes to especially movie and gaming region locking.

    It is against the law you idiots..... Per the sony lawsuit class action based on the region locking of GAMES. It states that the region limiting of a game is not allowed. I would assume that this would mean also ntsc and Pal, the only arguement is that the different tv set ups. Like dvd players, consoles and pcs should be able to emulate the required setup being either ntsc or pal. Its about time that the industry of both movie ( dvd ) and game ( console and c ) get their act together and stop this crap. I should be able to go anywhere in the world, pick up a game, pay for it, take it home and play it. I should not have to run around in another country knocking back real bargains based on the fact I live in Australia ( PAL ) and the game or dvd in ntsc.

    You as a industry should only be concerned with the fact that I bought you damn console or movie, you should not therefor give a crap where I bought it and for how much.

    Typical example is I can by a ntsc WII game brand new 40 australian dollars, in australia the same game exact same game $70 just cause its PAL

    give me a break
