Got it on http://www.nintendo-hacks.com/ As we have seen in the past, owners of first generation consoles are usually rewarded with hardware or firmware that allows them to mod their system (think PSP). Unfortunately, the same seems to be true with the Wii and the long term effects are not yet known. As it stands, the 3 mod chips currently available will only work on certain Wii systems, most of which were purchased before January. This is bad news to some of you who have recently purchased the system and really bad for those of you in Europe. Below is a picture of the chip on the DVD drive PCB. You have to open your Wii up to see this. If you have the chip on the left.. you are able to use the new chips. If you have the chip on the right you need to hold off and hope for a new chip or a workaround.
