    I am all for competition among the mod chip scene. This will (hopefully) encourage resonable pricing and better products with good updates in the future.

    Only plays GC imports with a swap? Isn't that a step backward? I have a feeling the code for this was ripped off of one of the free chips.

    I was going to wait for a chip that can load isos from a USB harddisk or LAN but that seems a long way off so I just ordered a wiikey instead. [​IMG]
