    Send in Wii?

    I recently bricked my wii and was wondering if i should send it in to nintendo. It's banner bricked and my warranty is gone so they are saying it will cost $60 (plus shipping and tax). I was wondering if i should do this or just buy a new one.

    Sending it in would be cheaper than a whole new purchase or buying one used and you get a brand new warranty. Unless you could just find a console by itself and purchase it alone. Either route you choose Nintendo or modchip it would still be cheaper than a new purchase.

    Out of warranty $75.00 for the repair. You pay for your own shipping and insurance. Insurance is optional, but nice to have.

    But a Mod-chip is 1. CHEAPER 2. You get a hybrid (soft and hard mod) 3. even if some how it WONT work (which it should unless your on 4.1) then if you do send it in and they wipe your hacks (or send you a new wii) you can just put in the mod-chip. So really the odds are with you with a mod chip. just my .02

    This time i made sure....

    I'm not wanting to go throught the modchip method. I just want either formated or fixed. I can always get my stuff back

    That sounds better than paying for a new one. Now one of the things i'm mostly worried about is some of my vc games i got free. What will they do about that or will they even check?

    If Nintendo detect anything in the NAND that caused the problem, that price will rise considerably. Do a search and see what other people have been quoted when Nintendo have detected anything.

    1. The modchip option would be the recommended way to go, if you get one with clips you could always sell it again after you unbrick your unit. But why would you?
