    People are bashing the Wiinja now that the Cyclowiz was announced. What they don't know is that the Cyclonwiz is essentially the same thing as the Wiinja, hell, its probably the same hex code slapped onto a PCB for looks. Yeah I know that there is a LED, but wow, I really need that. Both can support the "stealth" mode, but that doesn't really do anything that important. You can just make a "Stealth" switch yourself. The point is that, its all just subjective, and choosing either one is soley based upon your opinion, and ease of things.

    People are also talking about updates rendering the Wiinja useless, but it won't because from what I remember, this is a DRIVE MOD. Meaning that is a Disc Drive modification, and has noting to do with the motherboard. Just like the drive mod for the Xbox 360. Secondly, I doubt Nintendo will have games run on specific firmwares cause not everyone has wireless access to the internet, and I doubt they will put updates on their discs because it will waste space on there precious little discs (You know they need all the space they can have) PLUS this is already done by Sony with the PSP, and is ONLY done by Sony. I don't see why they should mimick this.

    The developers of these MODS are smart, thats why you are paying them.

    They won't let their countless hours of hexing, to be proven useless, with a 20MB update by Nintendo. Im sure they thought of all of the possiblillities of thing hendering their business and work, before releasing it for us to criticize. They spent months on this project making and ensuring that it will work, we've spent about two days looking and poking fingers at its faults.

    I SAY SUPPORT FOR TEAM NINJA, AND THE WIINJA!!

    For all we know, they might hold it back for a few more weeks and make it region free, and upgradable. Who knows?!?!

    I think people are getting to excited here, Alot of people will go and rush to buy a wiinja or cyclowiz and will be kicking themselves when in a few months a much better chip will come along for the same price.

    There isnt even a rush to to get your wii modded yet, Theres not that many great games out yet, Id rather wait for good releases, good chips and re-assurance that these chips cant be blocked and work ok.

    Yeah, Im pretty sure that there are going to better chips, in the future, and for all we know, it might be Team Ninja that does its release with its Wiinja 2.0 packing 512MB extra NAND Memory onboard, with compatibilty for all Wii backups, and upgradable firmware!! It even has a seperate upgradable O/S!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    My point is that, mod-chips, out of all things are always being tweaked, and made better every day. Everything is being upgraded. Think about it. If we keep waiting for something better and better. Something better and better will always come out. There is no BEST. Its all relative to the times. Its all business and propganda. People always want the best, but they don't know that there will always be a better. Take a look at cell-phones and cars.

    As of now, there is only the Wiinja and the Cyclowiz. Take your pick.

    I'm sure if people have the money they would do it. That would be like buying a slot 2 DS solution and then literally the next day, a slot 1 is announced.

    EXACTLY!! And I know most of us on here use mod chips to play pirated games. (Don't lie)

    But my point is that instead of paying $50.00 USD, for ONE game I can get the Wiinja for about $50-$60 USD and I could just have support for 2 games and I will get my moneys worth. Im not saying it will only support two games, don't use that against me.

    If a better one comes out, will just rip it out of my Wii and slap a new one in. Simple as that.

    I didn't say I pirated games by the way..........*runs*

    truth is, I'm all in favor of the whole buy one upgrade later etc, desoldering and soldering on those simple points isn't exactly time consuming or rocket science. My issue right now is I'd rather wait for the region options to play Japanese games and see how Nintendo reacts to the modchip first and to actually see the modchip in action when it's distributed.....that + the fact I have 4 games on the wii now and I haven't even had the time to open Zelda....there's just not enough good games on the Wii right now to jump head first into a modchip now. I'd advise patience in this situation, and I'm sure all the people that's had modchips in the past feel the same way...who knows, you can buy the modchip now and a day later the firmware on the drive is hacked...no telling where things go, smart thing is to wait.

    Haha no, I'm going to finish Zelda first, since that's the only game I'd play even if I had a drivechip.

    You already saved $365 if you have a 512MB, you save $635 if you have a 1GB, and about $1365 if You have 2GB. Why can't you just fork out $45 -$50 dollars for an M3 Simply or a R4?

    And since you have Slot 2, you can buy a Slot 1 to for added memory( i.e. 2gb w/slot 2 and 2gb w/slot1) and support for even more games, PLUS the use the Opera browser if you care to try, and all of this will can possibly save you about $4635.00

    What are you complaining about.

    uhhhh...yah...right [​IMG] I guess my point was, if he's so keen on advising people to buy one now and remove it later, it will go along way to support his argument if he himself followed his own advice. And he didn't....so uh... go me I guess?

    *sigh* well this discussion just got totally pointless. I'm bailing on this one.

    My advice here: Do whatever the hell you want, its your money. Let us know how it works out.

    I wasn't tryin' to influence anyone, and resulting in bad karma [​IMG] Its a matter of opinion and THATS my opinion. That people should stop talkin' sh*t they don't even know about the Wiinja or the Cyclowiz. You should only open your flapper and spit if you already have them. Don't waste time on speculation. It is what is is. That was the POINT of my disscussion.

    See a POINT now? [​IMG]

    Movin' on.

    Nice job makin' use of the ol' EDIT button buddy. Who says I wasn't supportin' "Buy one now, and remove it later" Geezz now your makin' it sound like we are buying some condoms or something.

    But if you must know that wasn't my point from the start, it was to get people to support Team Ninja. That was all. After reading all those post, my opinion was altered, and modified, but still has the same base in which it was concieved.

    Make whats pointless, a point.

    If it was truly pointless, then you wouldn't be replying or editing.

    Thats the POINT.

    This is a pretty bad way of thinking as of now. both chips are nearing release soon. The sane way to go right now is to wait a week and read on the first reports on both chips to make a better buying decision. Right now, you're rooting for air.

    Trust me, supporting those that are first is NOT always a good idea. I'm sure owners of the original NeoFlash package would agree.
