Nintendo revises Wii to block modchips

Posted on Tuesday, March 27 2007 @ 20:59:21 CEST by


After several modchips for the Wii appeared on the market, Nintendo decided to change the circuit layer of the Wii console to make it incompatible with the currently available modchips.
The new Wiis, which are part of new shipments of the console, have an altered circuit layout that makes modification more difficult than in earlier versions. Users attempting to mod the new consoles using current modchips are very likely to damage the system, the sources pointed out.

In view of past instances where Nintendo and other games console makers including Microsoft and Sony have revised the circuitry of their consoles in attempts to to disable modchips, it is a logical expectation that a more advanced modchip specifically for the new Wii revision will be available in less than a month, the sources indicated.
