    yeh, im not sure whats more shady, mod chips, cloning mod chips, knowingly selling cloned mod chips, or advertising cloned mod chips, it just seems a bit too shady for a webstore to be engaged in, but ah I guess its all shady any how.

    Deal Extreme doesn't sell them anymore though. They only have the 10 pack for $55 so Divineo is the place if you want clones.

    We're going to see clones until a true modchip is made. Drivechips are just too simple.

    Aren't you special?

    Anyhow, got ten on the way from DealExtreme. I'm tempted to grab 25 from there...

    I ordered a clone off Divneo. For $8 you can't go wrong. It just goes to show how much your paying for the name when you buy an original wii key.

    Some Qs..
    1) How much is shipping to the UK?
    2) How does this compare to the original WiiKey? Do they allow upgrading of wiikey firmware etc?

    I think it cost me just over £8 that included the wiikey, screw driver to open the wii up and shipping. I think the shipping costs about £2.50. The fake is just like the wiikey in every single way. So it allows the firmware to be upgraded. Nothing they can do to stop it either.
