    1. Can someone recommend me the best chip to make my Wii region free (and possibly make backups playable) I'm looking at Wiikey at the moment, but I'm willing to pick something else if it has better features, or the same features at a lower price.

    2. If possible could someone recommend me to someone who can solder for me in or around London, England? Long story short, I suck at soldering [​IMG]

    I lived with EU release dates for a while, and figured I could live without Japan exclusives, but not anymore.

    Most japanese and the unreleased US titles such as trauma center dont work on a modded wiikey

    if your main reason is playing imported games, I'd either wait until there are modchips with full import support, or until the shortage of Wii consoles in the USA is over and then buy a US Wii

    here's a list of which games currently work with modchips and which don't:

    also keep in mind that you can't region patch original games, so you won't be able to play original imported games on your EU Wii (don't know if it works with modchips that play unpatched imports, though)
