    I am going to buy the Wii, but I would prefer to buy a used one so I can save a bit, but I am worried that it may be updated by the previous user and that I won't be able to run my backup copies without using a modchip.

    If it has been updated, is there a way round this for me to play backup copies? Or do I have to get a new Wii?

    Thanks for your help!
