    Wii

    I've seen Wii's at SSP and Wan Chai that are hacked supposedly and have a DVD-ROM put in them and run games off a DVD-R. Anyone want to confirm this?

    Woo really? I have just bought a Wii ( US version). Does it mean if it is chipped, I can play both Jap and US games?
    How much does it cost to get it chipped?

    From what i understand about the chip capabilities are :

    can play both jap and US games (wii and gamecube)
    can play both jap and US backup games (wii and gamecube)
    not 100% compatible with PAL systems (play jap and US games)
    upgradeable firmware

    Oh and another thing ... the cost to get your unit modified is HKD 450 based on the store I inquired about.

    Have to leave the unit and come back after a few hours.

    Hang fire as the price will drop as its literally just out.
    Price should drop in a week or two.

    Will the server/update functions work properly after being modded?
