    My family bought a Wii 2 years ago and it's modified to play you know what games. At first I didn't really mind but now newer games need firmware updates which the dude at the store said not to update the firmware or even go on the internet using it which is really pathetic. I'd like to play the Wii again but playing original games.

    i think it's just a mod chip that allows you to play pirated disc on your wii, ask them if they can remove or disable it.

    go to VMall to ask around. Looked aroung online but didn't find anything on the topic.

    Worst case scenario, you sell that off and get an unmodded one :)

    I bought my wii 2 years ago from Greenhills. So as expected it was modified too, pero I never had any problems playing original games with it. I do remember that I updated the firmware once but still i can play both original and the not so :)
