Hey, I've searched and read a lot of stuff about modding a Wii... But still there's some confusion, and I think it's better ask to the pros. Im planning to do a trip to US soon and get a Wii around January/2010. 1st) I'm confused about the amount of models/hardware revisions on Wii. D2A, D2B, D2C, etc. 1.1) Is there a way to identify them in a store? 1.2) Is there a specific chip that isn't mod-able ? (by modding, Im willing to run homebrew and backups.) 1.3) Are softmods supported on all hardware revisions or there's newer ones who have mods blocked? 2nd) There's some gossip about a new Wii. Any additional info about it, and when it's going to be released? 3rd) About Bricking: Is there a way to have direct access to Wii files to unbrick it ? 4th) Is it worthy yet to buy a new Wii, or technology is already too old to be worthy? 5th) I got a Xbox360. I got caught in the latest banware. Im looking for a video game where I can have more fun with friends than alone. (Xbox is pretty much about single player games and live-only multiplayer games.). Still, some online content would be awesome. Are there any bans, blockings or some feature disable in Wii due to modding it ? Thank you in advance, and sorry if I skipped a question or two already answered, but I couldnt find them using search.
