    i do spend a lot of time fiddling with my wii but definately use it for games for longer periods of time. according to my message board i play on average about 5 hours a day on games, so at least 2 hours a day up to the most 9 hours a day. the games i play the most are wii sports resort, wii sports, tiger woods10, grand slam tennis, boomblox bash party, mario kart, excite bots, SMG, conduit, call of duty world at war, deadly creatures.
    on top of that i do spend a good half hour on average tweeking beardface's coverflow loader graphics to my liking on any said day, and about half hour a day on these forums.

    Rarely ever spend time messing around with the Wii. I only recently updated from 3.2 to 4.1. If it's working, and does everything I want to, I won't touch it. [​IMG]

    Haha this funny poll because I never play the wii games (over 100). I just mess with it all time. I just play my ps3 and xbox 360 (funny cuz neither of them is modded in anyway).

    Knew what this question would be and knew I'd vote yes [​IMG]

    Think I like piracy more than movies, music or games...

    same here! the whole idea of software piracy is definitely more attractive to me than the idea of videogaming. once i manage to run illegally downloaded game, and make sure it's working properly - i lose interest in it - apart from rare occasions, where i am attracted enough to buy a legitimate copy of a game to support the dev/programmer/designer

    Rarely spend time on the wii at all, but yes when I do spend time on it, it's to "fiddle" with it.

    I fiddle a little bit every day with my Wii, but I spend way more time on GBAtemp then on my Wii.

    When I do use my Wii to play games I play a lot. The numbers are about equal, but it does seem like I'm on GBATemp and fiddling with my Wii more than I'm playing it.

    We play on it more than tweak it. Dont see the point in just doing something for the sake of it , the wii's a game console play with it or get rid otherwise whats the point .

    but that IS the point - some of us just enjoy tweaking it more than playing. Why should i get rid of it if i enjoy it? because you say so?

    Because its fun to mess with it [​IMG]

    I wholeheartidly put my hand up and say I've probably had more enjoyment out of the Wii by hacking it, customising it, running various homebrew on it, updating it's cIOS/IOS etc. then I have playing the games for the damn thing [​IMG]

    Who told you to get rid of it ? stop acting like an arse. I said "I" notice the "I" bit or did your english teacher waste his time trying to drill in the benefits of a decent education?
    If i wanted something to tinker with id have bought a mark II escort . It gets updated as necessary then played with its as simple as that. You like tinkering with it good for you. Personally im not stupid enough to spend 180 quid of my own money on a console to "tinker" with it.

    Oh yea, totally. This is the first time I've played a burnt Wii game in months and it was for 20 minutes and I spent at least 4 hours today messing around with me and my friend's Wiis.

    I purchased a Wii when it first came out purely to Later run homebrew, all the cios hacks are just an extra perk now. It is fun to tinker around with stuff that is normally forbidden or not so widely known, hacking my wii led me to places like this. And I do spend a fair amount of time posting and sharing information when needed.
