    Hm...interesting. Although, modchips have become somewhat useless with the advent of various softmodded loaders. [​IMG]

    Well, I'm sure there are the uninformed who still thinks that modchips are the only way to play copies these days.

    They may not be the cheapest but if you want to simply play copied games with no hassles like cIOS, you are going to want to use a modchip.

    We know they are useless on this new system but I believe we are talking about modchips in general.

    Man, I'm starting to hate them.
    Not because they're trying to keep us vile pirates from pirating their precious software, but because the money wasted on these completely redundant hardware revisions would be better spent on real new features that might actually make the console worthwhile without having to install hacks.

    "Expect a new wave of modchips soon".
    Yeah, keep on feeding the modchip industry reasons to release and market new modchips, that'll help your cause.

    in the past new consoles (or remodels like the dsi) Nintendo is trying as much as possible to stop hacking and possibly cuz they think the games arent getting sold though the console is
