I have an Wii with a serial number in the range of Lah10583000 - Lah10875000. According to this http://www.ozmodchips.com/wii-c-7.html I have a D2E in my Wii. I havn't used my Wii in ages and in fact, I don't even remember updating it (I will check the FW version later). Basically my question is Softmod vs Hardmod. The only obvious advantage that I know of is that softmoding is free and hardmoding is not I won't be using USB loaders and I will only be using backed up DVD's. Which one would you say is best for me? I don't mind either one, but IT MUST PLAY MONSTER HUNTER TRI (I bought a Wii just for this) as flawlessly as possible Sorry if this question is in the wrong place and has been done to death Thanks!
