Well I've finally decided to finish hacking my wii but i forgot what i was upto.. I think i installed ciosrev20 or something, which was the one where you had to remove stubs?

Well i was wondering what was the ways you could brick a wii so i know what i can avoid.'

Can playing isos on a wii brick it?

Region of ISOs doesn't matter either. HOWEVER, as kaosu-noko said... installing WAD files (wiiware/vc games) does have a small risk of bricking the system unless you emulate the nand using sneek and install them there. You can force PAL/NTSC based on the tv you have, most loaders auto select.

I believe you would use Pal region games someone correct me if im wrong. but if you use USB you could force region of the game and i think that. i believe that you could do the same with a Disc

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
