    modchipstore.com is gone to. it may look like its up, but try and buy anything, and its out-of-stock.

    trustedmods.com is gone also.

    and i think www.metroidzmodz.com is gone to, but im not sure.

    Damn, I've bought a few times from modchipstore.com. They had pretty fast shipping. Consolesource.com is still is around and they are good. I guess they are a little safer being in Canada.

    It's doubtful the feds are going after customers as many very close to it are saying they are just going after the big fish. It appears to me people who do modding business online with that being their primary source of income.

    Just because some sites have been pulled doesn't mean they have been busted. Allot of them probably have temporally shut down just to be safe.

    This is the case for 1 of the sites that have been discussed in this thread. They have shut down waiting for the storm to blow over.

    @yojacks

    I hope your being sarcastic about the below quote...

    If that was the case then no one would get their Wii back due to Nintendo not having warranty stickers on the Wii in the first place.

    My Wii was out being modded and now the people I used to mod it are shut down. I guess that means I'm out of a Wii? Does anyone know if there's any chance of people getting their Wii's back?

    I think it's so stupid for them to be going after these people, but I guess that's the government for you.
