    Thinking of getting one from modchipcentral.com, is that the best site I can get it from and no other reliable sites which can offer one for lower?

    Why not just softmod a Wii?

    400 sounds high up there though.

    $400 is WAY too much.
    That's $250 for the Wii, and $150 for the modchip and installation.
    That's just a ripoff

    Buying a new one and sending it into an installer would be cheaper.

    It will get done. When the wii backup loader was released, remember how slow the games were. Compared to then, the games run at normal speeds now. I would wait.

    To buy a Wii with no mods in Aus is 400. Unless you have tonnes of cash to throw around, go softmod.

    A bit more complex, but is free [​IMG]
