I live in Japan and recently got a Japanese Wii for Christmas. The problem is I'm not quite fluent in Japanese yet and want to play US games if possible. We called Nintendo Japan, but they said they did not have any US Wii consoles to switch (hard to believe, but I was told the same thing by Sony when I bought a laptop here).

The only option I have is to mod it. I opened it up to check the chip, which probably wasn't necessary. It's a d2c. So, I have a choice between the d2ckey now, or Argon in January, maybe, if enough are produced and I can get my hands on one. What do you guys think? Does anyone know of distributors in Japan purchasing Argon chips? Is it safe to order and install them now, or should we wait a few months?
