    WIIBUSTERS

    NAH NA NAH NA NA NA NAN AN ANANNANANAAN

    Ahem.... I think that one looks a bit nicer since the chips is on an actual small board and not just a single PIC

    Still no region free. Not worth buying, especially if its a clone

    Doesn't seem like a clone exactly.
    It has an extra wire too, I assume that's the "Optional chip disable wire"

    No it's the same number of wires. 5. The go to the same places as Wiinja/Cyclowiz except the power/ground ones are different.... Not sure if it's just a different point on the same line or what...

    Wait what does that mean? If after awhile u get tired of the chip, you solder another wire instead of just removing the chip?

    No, it's so you can install a switch that completely disables the chip, so IF an update comes out that can check for the chip, it essentially won't be there. But that's not an option on this chip anyway.

    Still confused. If it'll become useless after an update, why not just remove it. doesn't make sense just to leave it there

    You'd disable the chip during the update and then turn it on. That way the system will update and not try to kill the chip. In theory.

    Still, a moot point for this chip anyway.

    Well if I was Nintendo, the update wouldn't just check for it once, it would check on startup, or when you go online. Like Microsoft checked every time you went online with the Xbox1 and would ban the Xbox's Serial immediately. It wouldn't just be a one time check.

    Ah, I was looking at this one:

    http://www.wiibuster.com/3_big.jpg

    That is the chip installed in the system. So yeah, dunno what that extra wire in that picture is all about... You'd need two points on the chip to make a chip disable switch work. The 6th wire would have to connect somewhere on the Wii to do anything.

    Looks neat, if it's cheaper than the Wiinja and the WiiKey turns out to be vaporware, I may just get one.
