    Part of Nintendos new EULA for their network:

    Does this mean people will no longer get to play online?

    people can still play online. aren't wii modchips stealth when online? i'm sure nintendo isn't gonna stop the modchip growth. the d2c board has the d2ckey now. they should've made the wii region free.

    i think nintendo is gonna give a ultimatem, maybe with SMG or SSBB. take out the modchip, update and play, or don't update and not play.


    we bought the system. we have the right to do whatever to it. the DRM and DMCA should be eliminated. you can't stop people from downloading and burning games and music.

    True, but companies still want even more money from us.

    Fight the man!

    Its heavy handed tactics like these that drive people to use mod chips in the first place. It becomes a game of push and shove. The more the company tries to limit uses of purchased hardware, the more the owners will fight back by developing more ingenious strategies to circumvent them. Its a game of cat and mouse.

    I'm sorry but this statement is TOTALLY false. You can not tell me that Nintendo's resistance drives people to do mod. Listen, if you're going to mod you're going to mod. Modding does not get mainstream attention. The people that know about modding are the people that research it and want to know. Gamers don't wake up one day and say, "Hey, Nintendo disapproves of modding so gosh darnit I'm gonna do it!!!" Please...

    Do you guys honestly believe that this is a new argument? Wake up noobs, this has been going on for literally decades! The Nintendo Wii is not the first moddable console. You're only rehashing a decades old argument.

    No no , Nintendo will release an update, it won't affect the modchip in use, and half this board will have an aneurysm thinking the update will smoke their modchip, when it will just introduce a new clock or something.... I can see the threads now....

    As for the user agreement, its just called covering your a**. They don't put it in, they kill someones wii = lawsuit.
