I live in Mumbai, India, and a getting a modded Wii Jap as well as US. Am not sure which modchip comes with it but I wanted to know, should I get the Jap version or the US version ??? Am getting the Jap one for $330 US and the US one for around $400 US.
Since am getting a modded one, from what I know, even the Jap one will play NTSC US games just fine and also the US gamecube games but I was more concerned about VC, coz Jap one will only connect to Jap site and vice versa, although I am totally aware that Nintendo can start banning modded consoles anytime :P
The only reason am sticking to getting a US Wii is for VC, but one of my friends said VC ain't that important coz most of the games you can just emulate on the Wii (GC Homebrew). Just so you guys know, I haven't played any gamecube game as yet and am totally excited
So, should I go with the US one or the Jap one ?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance :)
Edit: Am also thinking of ordering a chip and a Wii online through playasia or yesasia and get it modded here, but still not sure which region Wii should I get :) Also, even if I decide to order a chip online, is it better to go with a branded one like Cycloviz or should I go with something like this....Wii Boss Chip Kit. Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
Edit II: Also, does anyone know of any place here in India or Mumbai itself where I can just buy an UNMODDED WII off the shelf ??? That would be great coz then I would have a very high chance of getting a Wii with a motherboard which can be easily modded coz I heard the latest Wiis are coming with an unmoddable motherboard, D2C I presume. :)
