    I was seconds away from pre ordering one when they announced they were close to release but decided to wait for the release, glad I did because they went totally silent shortly afterwards.

    Anybody got any idea what happened to the thing? They showed videos of it working so it must have existed in prototype form.

    I don't think they ever got it working well enough for a public release.

    Their exploit got patched out from what i remember and they couldn't find a new one in time and abandoned the whole thing.

    They promised vaporware. Nothing to see here. If it was legit, it would have been out for a very long time.

    I did pre order it. I literally waited for over a year and eventually just got store credit.

    Mod chip central was actual very helpful to me. They had my pre-order on file and gave me credit.

    $131.15

    modchip central is some goof ball in his basement just reselling off the internet i bet.

    because this is the second time he ripped me off ... last time was with a flatmii chip for wii.

    but i dont think the other posters are correct, they chip is drive attached so i doubt it would be patched out.

    i bet there was just conflict of interests with the manufacturers producing them
