Hey everyone, I was just sitting around thinking as I was roaming around the boards today and thought, "Why do people mod their systems?" I think that we all have our reasons. But it really makes you think. What would possess a person to take a brand new off the shelf system, tear it apart, start sticking parts in that were never intended to be put inside the console and slap the thing back together? I don't know what kind of people are out there, but I guess all I know is why I did it. I love import gaming. I think that there is nothing better then having something that your buddy down the sterr won't see for another year AT LEAST. Maybe not even at all. Adding these games to your collection makes a statement. Your saying that there is a great game and damn it, I want it NOW. I'm crazy about Naruto. From the first time I played Jump Super Stars and found myself asking, "Who the hell is this spikey headded freak boy and why is he such a big star?" I wanted to know all about Naruto. Import gaming turned me on to a series that I probably would have never gotten into. Unfortunatally, Nintendo feels different about importing. There is a problem that they have with it. There are probably a whole metric f--k-ton of reasons why Nintendo region locked the games. But it really all comes down to Money. Bleach Wii may not have bee the big money maker in the US in Nintendo's eyes. Then why do I want it? Why am I not alone in this matter? WAKE UP. The day I installed my mod chip was the worst day of my life. I spent a month trying to get this console and now, I was putting that console on the line. I just wanted to play games that were suited for ME. I don't watch the english version of Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, etc. I watch subtitled versions. They are further along in the series then the ten year olds in the USA are. I want a game that is at THAT point. Nintendo: Unlock you console. If Nintendo were to offer in trade, my wiikey modified Wii for a brand new factory sealed Wii that would play WITHOUT A HITCH, every NTSC-U, NTSC-J, PAL game on the market and is future proof... I'd do it. I'm not in it for the backups. Yes, backups are great for many reasons but I would give that up for my dream machine. I think that there are people out there that feel the same. How many PAL Wii owners out there have ever bought a NTSC-J wii title before checking the compatiability list and discovereRevolution into a brick? How many NTSC-U wii owners want a taste of Naruto GNT EX? I know I sure do. Am I Alone ?
