    Well I've seen it in action. When you turn it on it goes straight to a custom ipod style menu with pics of the full games. It has 20 of them from mario galaxy to mario kart all full games. All I could tell hardware wise was a white hard drive attached to wii usb drive.
    here's the info:

    $4,250 which includes the cost of the unit, all taxes, shipping and administration, and repair and maintenance for the life of the Fun Center

    This could turn out useful to study.

    that might make it a little hard to learn its secrets.

    Plus if it has a custom menu I doubt the twilight hack would work.

    If it has a custom menu then dump it using infectus (or whatever) and then install on normal wii's...

    The big obstacle here is the price tag, plus dev's won't want to just steal some other menu, they want to create their own, so it has more funtionality that they can develop.

    thanks

    has anyone else send one of these in action?
    Does it look the same as a normal wii? bigger, smaller?

    the device needs to be in the hands of the d2pro team [​IMG]

    To be fair it does come with a flat screen TV, DVD player and many wii games (aswell as the wii itself and peripherals)

    And the other problem is that they aren't really for sale... you can only donate one to a hospital [​IMG] so you'd have to be pretty devious to get your hands on one [​IMG]

    It is just a scam so that when the kids come out of the hospital they will be all like "MOMMY I WANT A WII!" and their parents will be like "Ok we should buy him a Wii he was in the hospital OMG!"

    If they are not available for sale to teh puvlic then you just steal it, and then pay their 4k when they send you the bill.

    Are you sure that it was an USB-Harddrive. That would be great news, as it means, that the Wiis hardware isn't limited to USB 1.1, but is really 2.0 with the IOS slowing it down. And IOS can be patched. ^^

    No, it would mean that specific Wii has a 2.0 usb drive.

    They won't manufacture special Wiis for these Fun Stations. It would loose them A LOT of money.

    I thought we already knew that the Wii had USB 2.0 and it was limited by the current driver/CIOS whatever...
