I'm seeing someone locally selling a soft modded Wii U that already plays backup games for a rather good price. However, the optical drive is not working in it. I'll probably have to inquire about in what way it is soft modded, if that's relevant to my questions here. Questions I'd like to know the answer for: - Can I still play online with a soft modded Wii U? - Do I need the optical drive for any functionality regarding soft mods, like updating soft mods or installing them? - I see replacement DVD drives for Wii U on Aliexpress for below 15 USD. Would that likely solve the issue with the drive, or are Wii Us known to break somewhere else hardware wise that cause the DVD drive to stop functioning? Many thanks!
