    Is the Wii the best "modable" system?

    People say the original XBox makes a better media player, but the Wii is so easy to mod and you can get a lot out of it.

    I was thinking it would be down to the Xbox/Dreamcast/Wii

    but wasn't sure

    Xbox 1 is the best for media playing with XBMC. Wii is best for homebrew variety.

    My Top 10.

    1. Xbox = Best for Movies, Best for Emulators and Best for booting xbox game ISO from Hard Drive!!
    I love my Xbox..

    2. Wii = Its starting to do everything the Xbox can and it only getting better..[​IMG] Soon Wii will be #1.

    3. PSP = You got to ament if you have a PSP running Custom Firm Ware you love it!! Grate apps, runs PSP ISOs and there are some grate emulators for it Ohh, it plays back up PS1 games too.[​IMG]

    4. PS2 = You can play back ups a number of ways Swap Trick, HDD Loader, etc. Plays Emulators from USB card or disc and they still make games for the PS2..

    5. DreamCast = It plays back ups with out modding!!! You just need a boot disc for some games..
    It has some good emulators that run off disc but no HD and cool apps brings it down on my list.

    6. Sega CD = Plays back up cd with no modding aka burn and play, its the easyest.

    7. Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 = just plays back ups cds with no modding. Its kinda hard to find the FZ-1 but I got one, Yeah!!!

    8. PS1 = Swap Trick works to play back ups "no moding" if you glue the hatch lid button down, but swap trick harms the PS1, its better to use the PSP to play PS1 backups.

    9. Xbox 360 = You can mod these to play back up 360 games but you need to take it apart and it voids the warnety
    Pluse I never seen a Xbox 360 work for more than 1 year if you play it on a day to day basics..

    10. PC = I realy cant call it modding but it should be here I feal...
    Hell it can do everything if you have the money, thats the big draw back.lol.

    The xbox will always have something over the Wii for media play, the Xbox can display HD media (720p) and the Wii maxes out at 480p

    But the wii can play backups, usb backups, do guitar hero/rock band customs and install wiiware/vc wads and quite a few emulators without chipping and all you need is an SD card. (Plus blank dvds/usb harddrive obviously).

    +1 for the original Xbox.

    Not much that that thing can't do...Throw a softmod with a 500+GB HDD in there and it's basically a museum of older systems (even PS1!). The emulators are (mostly) pretty perfect, especially the Xport ones. Combine it with XBMC, and you have the best modded console possible..IMO.

    I wouldn't trade mine for anything! [​IMG]

    xbox 1 is still on top. Wii has a lot to do to catch up. Even the game quality is much better, more hardcore gamer oriented.
