    Sorry guys, I did a quick lazy 1 minute search and couldn't find anything about it.
    Is it possible? Are there different versions of it? (I highly doubt that they've had the time to do that)
    Thanks!

    It surely comes with 4.3, so you will need one of the hacked games to hack it. And have D3-2 drive, so no DVD backups.

    Well, we can't know until someone tries.
    I'm guessing it's like a Black Wii though, which can be hacked.

    No DVD backups, the drive will not read burned DVDs, period.

    You will need one of those original games in order to hack it, as it won't read burned DVDs.

    Yes, all red wiis have the same DVD drive, the new drive has been in Wiis for a while.

    The drive itself will not physically read burned discs.

    Well, you could if you replace the drive with an older one or fit a WODE. Though there is no guarantee that this model will work with them.

    umm... if it's already a backup disk then your computer can read it just fine. Use WBFS manager to copy it to your USB or external HDD, then walk your butt over to your Wii and play it [​IMG]

    ...
    What about with a Wode?

    Would you still need the hack-game if you want to run bckups with a wode?

    I got one today and it is 4.3 and has all the nintendo channels installed plus iplayer. Anyway I have hacked it with Indiana pawns and I switched the drive with my old wii to get gamecube backups working which was weird because they wouldn't boot until I installed darkcorp but they only boot through neogamma
