    With all the shit wii games there are, that mod is not even worth the hassle...buy all the good games there are for the wii....it'll only set you back about £120.

    I don't have a Wii, but £120 on a £5 a week wage is a long, long time

    Nice for me since I only got my Wii recently. But seriously, 30 wires? Even the PS2 had less wires to sodler on the modchips.

    But seriously, a modchip is a essential when you consider that games like Trauma Center and Super Paper Mario takes MONTHS to come out to the UK.

    30 wires [​IMG] that will boost the cost for an install to at least £100+ and anyone who say differently are kidding themselves.

    You know, if I beef up my soldering skills and mod a few consoles, I could be set for a new car...

    30 wires? That sounds like you're completely bypassing the DVD's drive chip...

    Holy cow!!!

    Sure glad I only needed to struggle through a 6 wire WiiKey install. I know I'd never attempt this on my own. [​IMG]

    also, the Wii's lineup is full of games like Trauma Center, which are fun for a few hours, but just not worth $60...

    Finally , been waiting for d2c to get done. Think I'll pick up a wii soon then. Doesn't look too bad , no worse than some of the ps2's just some more wires. Still don't match 44 wires neo 4 [​IMG]. Me thinks people just been spoiled by the easy install low wire counts of the xbox one mods and the wii mods for the other chip sets.

    I think people (like me) are still holding out for some exploit that involves the SD card/USB port.

    Is there even any news of exploits?. I've not been following the wii stuff other than the d2c chipset stuff as i'm waiting to buy one and it's probably gonna be that.

    Those specs are not final. The final product will be slightly less wires.

    Frankly, if everyone is bashing Wii in this thread, so will I. In fact, I regret buying it. It's not the console, but the lack of games.

    Yeah, Wii has even better possibilities in 2008. I think there's enough Wii games to entertain me but definitely the Wii hasn't been maximized. Looks like Nintendo has several good games planned over the holidays. Problem is a good game takes 1+ years to make - few companies took the Wii serious to start so probably didn't even start developing until mid-year. So maybe Summer 2008 we'll start to really rock.

    The Wii's lack of games?I have quite a bit NTSC/JPN games that keep me entertained.I can see where you are coming from,but it doesnt apply to me for some reason.

    I guess having a PS3/360/Wii dampen's the blow.
