    We all should know by now about the drives that have the three pins cut so they cannot easily be modded.

    They existed in Japan, but a friend of mine says that he has read they are showing up all around the US. He even specified a serial number range, but I lost it [​IMG].

    Any more info on this?

    Goldcoastr, so have you indeed seen any Australian PAL consoles, which had their 3-pins cut-off ?

    the number of wii sales in aus is lower then japan thats why japan already are hitting shelfs

    Oh man, these things better not show up in Canada for another month or so, because if I find my Wii to be unmoddable, I'll be extremely pissed.

    At worst, you'll have to wait a couple of weeks while the modding community catches up to Nintendo's security measures.

    does anyone think that the serial port on the new chips has somehow been permanently disabled?
