    Hi

    I havent had a Wii long and with all my previous consoles I eventually Modded so i could play backups of my games (ahem)!

    With my Xbox i didnt mod for a long long long time prefering to just buy the best games and I carried on like that.

    Are there any real arguments against modding apart from the risk to the actual console etc

    Ill give you some advice from a WiiKey user.
    Don't buy a Cyclowiz, theres lots of problems with them including only been compatible with some Wiis
    My WiiKey works great, my friends Wiifree also works great.
    If you are good at soldering surface mount components, you can do it yourself but I recommend getting someone who does it regularly.
    The quick solder joints don't line up (its weird) so wires must be used on all joints.
    At this point you can only backup games with a specific DVD ROM (LG). Its only about $20. You can always download backups through torrent sites but they are big files 4GB. Hope that helps you make a decision

    Wii smurf Id say that your the noob. Should I scratch my originals instead of play my game backups? And who cares if it's illegal ,your thinking that suddenly the big N will go to your home and arrest you?
    My advise is get Wiikey you could play other region games with it. Like buy a game from JAP and play it on a NTSC Wii .

    I have modded a PS2, it was definately cool to be able to "Backup" my games and without limit play whatever I wanted. On the other hand after awhile of having it I would burn things just to have them. I hardly finished any of the games (112 at last count) and I don't think I enjoyed them nearly as much as the games I bought before the mod. So essentially its a really really personal thing. I would say no, because of the warrenty, and no because I want to enjoy the games I play. Yes if you have a burning desire to be able to play burned "backups".

    I agree with lasher. I feel like if I were to mod my wii and start downloading backups the appeal of them would be lost. You don't pay anything for what you get and so you don't value it as much. I definately see the positives in modding though. You save a pile of cash simply put. Get to try alot of games. Personally I'm not comfortable voiding my warranty, but that's me.

    If your using mods to get games for free then you do not support nintendo or any other company that you are modding PERIOD If you are using it for diffrent reasons then thats better but I woudn't reccomend it anyway.

    Im an idiot for giving my opinion! :incazzato: I dont have a problem with people that MOD or whatever and well done to those who have and are enjoying it. I just think that the console is produced in a certain way (funtions etc etc) and it should just stay like the way it should be thats all.

    Your and idiot for agreeing with the other idiot who says that people who chip their consoles are noobs. You call a noob who just saves a loads of cash?
    Think what your saying.

    And erm how is he/she saving cash? if its illegal im tottaly against it!! If they are downloading and copying games thats illegal and rips off nintendo and other companies.
    I would much rather have my console the way its sposed to be and pay for my games.
    I dont want to get into the whole is modding right or wrong arguement here. I just think people who mod consoles to play Back-ups which they do not own is wrong! If they use it legaly and correctly i have no probs with it to be honest!

    Modding is a discrace to the gaming world, no thanks to microsoft for introducing it to the "wide" public. (so fanboys won't say BUT THERE WAS MODDING BEFORE WE CAME :( )

    1. voids warrenty
    2. risky
    3. cost money
    4. not really worth it
    5. Might interfear with other things nintendo releases.
    6. potentially illegal.
    7. future Firmware updates could find it even IF it even has a "stealth" mode.
    8. stupid and pointless, why potentially ruin an amazing system?
    9. Rips off great companies and no money means no games for you fools. Modding is a noob thing, Its so stupid. Kinda simple modding = no money = no games from game comapnies. Infact i think it might become illegal COMPLEATLY.
    10. Some game companies are shooting law suits from all over at basement geeks making "home brews"

    You can mod ur wii with wiikey, its undetectable , unpgreadable, works with stealth mode and restore mod. It's the best one out there, just make sure to buy from an offecial resellercuz there are many clones fakes and edae on arrival chipps out there.

    BUT make sure that you still buy original games, the once that you like the most, like a gamoe or two at least, or else game producers will loose and this will affect you in the long run :)
