    OK! so I was thinking, hey, I can delete all my homebrew stuff, and junk, but I can't get rid of my calendar entries!

    I was wondering If I have to send my wii to nintendo, will they ban me? or arrest me?

    Which would be better if my wii broke down: sending for repair, attempting to repair it myself, or buying another?

    -- THIS IS HYPOTHETICAL, BUT POSSIBLE --


    thanks!!

    All you have to do is remove all the homebrew... then do a format... The log it creates after that will only be of your old Wii id # and whatever you legally downloaded through the shop channel....

    By Nintendo you mean the call center that takes you repair call ??!?

    Simply put, voids your warranty. YOU have to pay for any repair(s). That's why they got the lawyers to write up the stuff in the operation manuals, etc; to exclude them from further repairs that aren't warranted by them.

    Format Wii System memory is the solution to your answer. Read the manuals to find out what they're willing to cover.

    Company is making 6$/per Wii think they want that to mess up profits by repairing *.* pirated Wii consoles.

    Yeah, but Microsoft made less than that from the first XBOX... And the XBOX 360 just started making them money within the last year or so!

    $6 X 40 million = a fuck load of money. You don't seem to realise that they are raking it in with the Wii.

    I bet Sony wished they even got a penny for each PS3 sold.

    true, I'd say it more like this:

    "It is unusual to make money off hardware at all; making even a small amount off the hardware is a good thing. It is mainly the software that makes money, and Nintendo really has that cornered too. They make an obscene amount of money on many wii games, including more piles of shovelware than ever believed to be possible."
