    picked pu a wii today and I am looking to modify it. Anyone in the know of a good wii forum, there are a couple to choose from.


    Also the wiiconnect24 update, is that really causing error codes?


    Someone with a wii holla at me.

    doesn't n8ther have a chipped wii?

    I am looking into some of the soft mods involving an SD card, but of course I want to know whether to update the wii or not, I would like access to all its online stuff.

    I think it would be the $200 price point. Its geared to cheap gamers who don't care much about graphics and want to play the game, not push buttons.

    as far as forums go, I'm afraid the best you're going to get is maxconsole, which is where I get all my video game related news. The chip I used is called the chiip. it's basically just an atmega8-16 microcontroller (bout $3 from digikey) with a .1 uf capacitor. it's really simple, and if you can install any of the mod chips, you can make a chiip, so there's basically no excuse for buying a retail chip. you'll have to program it of course, but the programmer can be easily made for less than $5 at radioshack. The best part: the firmware's open source, or at least it's supposed to be in the next release anyways, and the chip is fully updateable.

    All the wii chips are just drive mods, and require only 5 wires. With the mods, you can play wii and gamecube backups, as well as all gamecube imports and homebrew (including gc linux), and about 70% of wii imports. so in total, for a chiip, you're looking at around $10-12, much lower than the $42 for the cyclowiz and $50 for the wiinja. you can find out more from http://chiip.descrambler.de (the support forum is in german though, so for help with problems, either check out maxconsole or contact me)

    oh yeah, and the reason it's still sold out is because it's so freakin awesome! ninty's havin trouble keepin up with the demand, as they've already sold over 7 million consoles, with no signs of slowing down any time soon.

    we got 4 of them in a shipment at work today. All 4 of them were snatched by employees, I pretty much man handled a co-worker for mine. Since the Wii launch our store has only sold like 11 units to customers, we got more than that shipped; but employees snatch them. Today it was my turn. Picked up Zelda and Mario, of course. I'll put my dollar towards the original Nintendo killer Apps, but other than that I'm chippin this bitch. Paper Mario is way badass.
