Quoting Squarepusher:
and toco, no i don't really, sorry.

do you own a wii? if you do uh i need a wii friend or two.


Yes of course I own a wii.. BUT i can't get broadband down in the valley even with sattelite... but i have the usb wifi adapter ready!


Quoting Squarepusher:
thirdly i would like to add, does anyone know how to mod the wii to play DVDs? my dtuch friend said something about it but i was drunk trying to convince myself a dvd /could/ play on wii. and she talks a lot of bullshit anyway.


Yes in fact i do. Firstly Nintendo stated it would play DVDs but then decided it was too expensive to buy the rights. So Nintendo had planned to sell a usb gimmick to allow you to play these. Then this plan was scrapped after release ( but is still quite possible). Instead they decided they would go down Microsofts route and release a Premium Wii...and thats about as far as it goes

But that doesn't mean you can play them today...well you can't. A mod hasn't been released BUT the boys behind wiikey, the best available and upgradeable modchip at this time, are hoping to release an update soon that allows the playing of DVDs. BUT again that means you can not play DVDs today... well you can't. A mod hasn't been released BUT the boys behind wiikey, the best available and upgradeable modchipchip of this time, have made it possible to play DivX files (i think- search youtube for "wiikey" and one of the 20 files will show you how to do this) meaning that Nintendo has really just caused their fans to hack their wii (which is illegal in some places), use illegal movies (or legal backups), and most of their games must be downloaded or imported due to the absolute lack or good games in Europe.


SEE I'M HELPFUL

hm, morally it shouldn't stop us getting the same games in my opinion.

sometimes it's a border line that makes little sense:

mario striker actually isn't out for Wii over in the states (NTSC), so i guess us (PAL) europeans are pretty damn lucky to have the first online play release so early.

but is there a valid reason for releasing games in this fashion?? i can't see any, especially when Wii was about "unifying" the world in gaming. unless it's big-time marketing schemes, or

IT'S A CONSPIRACY.
Well if you spend time converting a game into a pal format and then your market buys the ntsc version then you've thrown away loads of money on localisation and shit or something. you fag.

you're lucky i was half-joking, bastard.

anyway the idea of net-play should be everywhere, no? that was my basic point which you "conveniently" missed.

Obviously i "conveniently" missed your point because you're a queer and everyone knows that queers, like women, have nothing to add to the conversation. Man, I can punctuate so well.

Most shops now don't let you try games before you buy them so they provide a no questions asked money back guarantee just buy them, copy them, return them.

Game, argos, gamestop(if it's still open), smyths. You get your cash back and just go to another shop on the other side of town. You could go to dundrum's game/virgin megastore. I knew a guy who used to do it all the time with PC Games.

Yeah most places had that policy but if they don't let you try it before you buy it your rights as a consumer are affected so they have to legally do it. I don't know what I'm talking about we'd need to ask someone who was a consumer lawyer.

I have never actually done it, and know few people who have. It's just that the company ethos is very good and you can come back with a CD/DVD/game that you didn't like and they'll give you the money back (sometimes without even a recipt).

Virgin wouldn't worry as they are one of the wealthiest companies ever and sell products/services in just about every possible sector. Asda (I believe) is owned by wall mart, and therefore also don't give a damn about a few PC games or whatever.
