    Modding isn't REALLY necesarry, i mean, most games can now be played at full speed.
    However, if you want 100% compatibility, the closest you'll get is a modchip.
    And i guess Gamecube support could also be a reason to get a modchip, though that'll be supported sooner or later anyway.

    I believe he was asking why a hardmod / softmod is needed for the Wii to read burned games.

    The reason is that official Wii discs are pressed in a factory and not burned. The Wii can tell whether or not the disc is official. If its not official, it refuses to play.

    The only way is buying all games yourself or buying any modchip and playing all backups 100%

    Some Wii's won't play SSBB(dual layer) with or without a mod chip, so It's not really 100% for everyone.
