    I've got an xbox 360 and currently considering to buy a wii console. i have a few questions before i buy this console as i am reading good stuff about it over the net.

    my main concern is that if i install a modchip on the console, will i be able to play copied games online with no problem?

    sorry for such questions but after searching and reading many pages i could get a proper answer.

    If you got any additional info that i probably forgot to ask about please add as i would really appreciate your help.

    the reason for buying this over ps3 at the moment is that ps3 havent got any big titles coming out now but after reading many reviews of wii owners on forums and amazon.com i have been convinced to buy one.

    Thanks for your help

    sorry i forgot to mention, what accessories will i need to buy along with it? i need a full package.

    if someone knows a good online store please advice me as amazon are out of stock and from what i am aware of it shouldn't be more than $250 USD for the sports package, is that true?

    thanks

    We dont know yet no online games till August.
    No unless you are planning to rip it on your burner then you will need one of them 2 LG burners but if you just plan to burn on your burner it will do fine just buy a pack of quality DVD-R's.
    Yes thats true.
    if you live in the US.
    try www.ebgames.com
    they have online shopping but US only.

    Are you planning on doing multiplayer NOT online? If so you will need another wiimote (I recommend getting wiiplay because it comes with a free wiimote) and also an additional nunchuck.

    If you want to be able to play gamecube games and virtual console games I would recomend a Gamecube wavebird as well. It works with just about all of the games that require the classic controller. I have a classic controller as well because of Donkey Kong Country and Comix Zone having really bad gamecube key mapping.

    There is no fricking way that comix zone can be enjoyable just using the wiimote.

    did you actually get on here and admit to downloading games off the internet for use with your console. You might want to read the forum rules. They take that very seriously and your likely to get banned. Just trying to spare ya buddy.

    arsenal81,

    We don't want or need to know where or how you got your ISO's so let's keep that in mind in the future.

    Wii's are still a little hard to find online... I ordered mine in a bundle with 2 games but only ended up having to pay for one. (Which i traded in at ebgames for one I actually wanted without any $ lost, i just didn't open it.) Keep an eye out on slickdeals and also on instock trackers it might take a bit or check your local retailers as well often. Wii's still aren't easy to get in a lot of locations I'm sorry to say.
