Good luck with that. The Wii is hot though. While PS3 has dropped their prices, Wii is not budging. Ha, stores are still trying to keep them in stock. They sell out too quickly. Way to go Nintendo!!!!
Mod chips have been out forever...I have one in my (original) Xbox.
Basically what they do is allow you to load an alternate "dashboard." Sort of like an OS for a console. This allows you to do things such as use burned games, FTP to the console's hard drive (therefore put on trainers, games, even movies), put in a larger hard drive, etc etc etc. You can even load Linux on most consoles.
