    For a while now, I have been contemplating buying a Wii. I have 2 kids, one of gaming age, and I more than dabble myself. I am familiar with the Xbox 360 firmware mod, that lets you back up your games, which is a plus, as I am sure my kids are liable to scratch any disk that gets left around. Obviously, there are other advantages. My question... are there similar mods for the Wii? I work on computers for a living, am a musician who likes to fix his own amps, and I am smart enough to learn... but I don't want to do anything to my wii less I am sure I know what I am doing. There is a lot of crap on the web, so I thought I would post here in an effort to weed through the chaff if you will..

    Any advice appreciated..

    I'd imagine there'd be, not an expert myself on the Wii since I don't have one but I know there are alot of modchips available for the Wii allowing you to save a bucketload aka not having to buy any games. Once you do get the Wii you should check out a couple of the gaming torrent sites lol and are in a pretty good place to find out which ones they are- from the top of my head Blackcatgames, bitgamer etc.

    Wiinja is the chip that allows you to play backups...not too difficult to solder if you have experience, from memory its about 3 or 4 wires that need to be soldered.

    There are modchip for the wii and if not already the case, solder less option will certainly be available like it have been for ps2 and xbox 1. If i had a few bucks free, I would certainly get one. Biggest install base and GC compatibility is a nice plus. The homebrew scene is quite vibrant too.

    The CycloWiz is a soderless option but its description says that you can wire it to the motherboard instead. I don't know anything about modding the Nintendo Wii but I have flashed my 360 and it is very easy to do. Another plus about the Xbox 360 is that it currently dropped to $299.

    The Xbox has the better library of games, IMO. The Wii seems pretty weak to me. Unless you are really into casual games or you don't play a lot then the Wii would be a fine choice. The 360 is coming out with a motion controller similar to the Wii, too.

    Buy a 360 instead like suggested above. Games are much better on a 360 and it's easy to mod
