    http://www.wiikey.cn - the only modchip that supposedly allows you to play NTSC games from other regions (Japan)

    Not out yet though.

    You'd kind of expect so, considering its name is WiiKey. :p

    I suggest waiting and avoid getting the Mod chip, that WILL void your warranty that you have with Nintendo (and if you've purchased a warranty from the retail store you bought it from.). It's already been confirmed that the people who've made Freeloader for the Gamecube are in the process of making one for the Wii.

    You're not worried about the warranty, simply because you did not purchase the system. And I doubt anyone would want a broken Wii for parts at the current moment, and the highest you can probably sell it for is 60 dollars. Also, stop double posting, there's an edit button for a reason. LEARN how to use it.

    I don't know how people could expect to install a mod chip and not void the warranty. Yes a Freeloader's coming out someday, but there's nothing stopping Nintendo from releasing a firmware update to disable it. The advantage of an upgradeable modchip is that it's pretty much guaranteed to work forever (just don't update until a new firmware's been released).

    And if the manufacturer stops releasing firmware updates, it'll be picked up by the community.

    Oh, and I paid full price for my Wii. Little solder ain't gonna hurt, and if it does...it's only money ;)

    The Freeloader is a simple disc, I doubt there would be a firmwire update to block that, while as for the Modchip, you can continue on your "upgrades", but they'll just keep updating the firmwire until these "upgrades" become too expensive for your pockets, then you accidently cut a wire here and there, and your left with a faulty system. You know for a fact Nintendo will not stop releasing Firmwires, unless the Wii becomes obsolete and they focus on their next gen system.

    Yep, great minds think alike ;)

    It'd be a lot easier to block a specific software than to block a chip which (for all intents and purposes) offers the same data to the Wii as if the chip wasn't installed. To be honest, I'm not sure how Nintendo would detect the chip in the first place, but if it does happen, that's what upgrading's for.

    Regarding that, the modchip upgrades are offered for free on the 'net as ISOs. You burn them to DVDs and insert them into your Wii to overwrite the modchip's firmware. Free :cornut:

    I'm probably gonna wait on mine for a while, because one of the big reasons I want to play is because I'm trying to learn Japanese, and I can't think of a better way than by playing Japanese games ;)

    My Japanese isn't up to that level yet though, so I probably won't be modding my Wii for a few months.
