    I havn't modded my Wii yet and probably wont for a long time. Mainly because I don't know how to solder. I don't want to mess anything up. But also because I think the Wii is a great and sophisticated system and I just don't want to open it up yet. Anyone else who has not modded their Wii yet? Whats ur reason?

    Not modded, nor will it ever be. I like my originals.
    The only thing that would make me consider modding it will be if the freeloader isn't possible.

    Not modded yet. Don't really have a reason. Might end up modding it when the time feels right

    Mine isn't modded either. It may have some flashcards for handhelds, but I'm a real collector. I love original games.

    Maybe I'll mod my Wii in a few years. But I'll buy games that will be classic like Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 anyway.

    I plan on modding mine eventually.
    Im waiting for the modchips to get perfected before I solder it to my Wii for good.
    Renting games has gone up alot in price and its become cheaper to just buy em in the long run. Wich means I need a way to try the games before I spend the extra cash.
    So ya, modchip eventually, once they get all the kinks out.
    That Wiip chip looks good. And opensource means updates wont have a chance to be"gone for good" :3

    Though I was erally hoping for a chip that could lemme hack the Wiimenu. Man that menu needs some color. Its so plain and grey :/
    Eh, one day we'll hack it :3 (Damn lazy nintendo wont give us the option any time soon)

    Not modded. There aren't even any Wii games I want to play in the form of a backup.

    There's about 6 months before I sell it and my posts on the event will continue. Enjoy!

    Mine's not modded. I'm way too lazy to open it up and solder something in there.

    Mine's unmodded..... and will probably be so for a long time...
    if there comes a "mod" which doesn't need opening.... then I will do it [​IMG]
    (or in a few years when the price is down really low.. i'll buy a new one to mod)

    My Wii isn'T modded as well, i want to but i mainly want to play Naruto and Bleach ... so i need a Modchip that can play ALL Wii Games, so i need to wait some longer. I am sure there will be a time with a fully region free Modchip

    I haven't got mine modded yet. Waiting for something a bit more reliable, plus I need to get someone to do it for me.
    You could have included a poll?
