    We just purchased our brand-spankin' new Wii yesterday, and I wouldn't trust myself to solder anything into it. I'm also doubting I could find anyone in my area I'd trust to do it (I'm in Georgia). So, I'm wondering if there is any news of a device on the horizon that won't require any modification to the system, and plug in like a video card or something similar (perhaps plugging into one of the system's ports). If not, do you anticipate something being conceived in the near future?

    Thanks

    If there ever was such a magical device on the horizon I'm sure it would be the talk of the forum. So the answers a no, the current drive modchip method will be around for a while methinks.

    Cough up the cash from that gigantic wad of dough you will have saved not buying any games and send it away to be modded...

    Hmm...that begs the question, to whom? Are there some trustworthy, reliable folks who won't leave you with a $300 piece of unusable metal?

    I agree, though. At $50 a game, there's a lot of potential for savings.

    I recommend Chuck at ModAWii.com ... you can ship it to him, he'll mod away. Cost you as much as 2 games.

    Just get a modchip (I recommend an OpenWii 2.2 chip), and ship your Wii to a respected installer, even if they aren't local.

    (PS: I recommend Chuck cuz he hooked me up a few weeks ago, and I'm more than happy. He didn't do my install though, I did it myself.)

    get out some old random electric crap you dont need in your garage and start practicing soldering

    and of course you could wait for a soft mod
