    My brothers birthday is coming... so i'm thinking of buying him a wii (he still lives with our parents since he is still 13 going 14) since he really enjoys playing it when he comes at my home.


    now, i wanted to know if any new wii is hackable, as in software and modchip (i intend to put a modchip, but cracking it is kind of a must so he can stay with trucha sign bug), or if there are some that might not work.

    thanks

    Heck with craigslist, use Ebay.. got a whole setup the other day for $120 that included shipping.. LU64's are more trouble than their worth.

    Ebay has scamers.
    Use Craigslist.
    But Tell your friend if its a LU64 or LU65 Wii, Do not install IOS's Or cIOS's. it will brick it.

    Ebay and Craigslist both have scammers, you just have to be smart.
    Anyhow... LU64+ will still work out fine, but it'll take extra effort.
