    There isn't terribly much advantage...In fact, in some cases, it can be considered worse to have a hardmod over a softmod.

    The only advantages I can think of are that modchips are much more user-friendly than softmods, and some of the newer modchips (which have the ability to autoboot wii backups) can be saving grace when trying to repair certain bricks (such as Error 003), although softmods and a bit of common sense can easily overcome such bricks.
