    Real or Fake? The Matrix WiiZii, the solderless mod with SATA loading

    Hmmmm.....not likely by them..since Matrix has not been around since 2006
    As everyday goes by....it seems more and more like BS....

    not that there isn't other groups working on it.....but just seems general concensus is the the wiizii is a fake..



    The incredibly savvy Matrix team has exclusively lifted the lid on their upcoming product - the WiiZii! The Matrix WiiZii is a completely solderless plug and play modification which works on ALL Wii versions. Once installed, the WiiZii allows you to do all the things you'd expect from a Wii modification device but brings with it one incredibly special feature - the ability to connect an external HARD DISK DRIVE drive (via SATA) and enjoy super quick loading of ISO and homebrew files on the Wii. But thats not all, this intelligent pice of kit also comes with 2MBit of memory and its firmware can easily be updated in the future. Some might say this is all just to Easy, we mean WiiZii! Click the image below to see a WiiZii prototype installed into the Wii. More details will follow next week!

    It utilizes an SATA connection, so newer HDD's with e-SATA should be just fine. No word on if this is a solution to the D2Nothing boards, but it looks like it might be.

    Question

    My concern would be the software programming (to read the ISO's on the HDD) although this is similar to the flatmii since it is installed in between the drive and the wii probably a channel just for this chip would have to be installed.....all in all this might be the way to go in the future!!!

    This would be very cool to have. I remember someone talking quite some time ago, about how there were special Wii's made with hdd's like in Hospitals where a person could just select a game and play and they wondered how it was done.
    I am guessing that is the same idea.
