So, I've been considering ditching my Nintendo Wii for the Mini version for a while now. I mainly use my Wii for homebrew purposes. I don't go anywhere near the online capabilities unless it's required for installs. The online is just a huge disappointment for me, considering that the xbox 360 had these capabilities back on the original xbox. What I want to know is if it can read burned games and if not could I replace the dvd drive with an older regular wii one. I also would like to know if it can be hacked for homebrew, I've assumed it can (haven't read anywhere that it's not possible too). The main reason I want the Mini is because I also want a gamecube. I'd rather not have the two mixed. It's a pain to get the Nintendo Wii to play gamecube games anyways so I figured it'd be better to separate the two. Ps. I wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured this section would be my best bet considering it falls under "Nintendo Wii".
