New *Black* Wii Question/Concern
I've not yet purchased a wii, I will be doing that within a couple of weeks, but I want to do my research and make sure I've got everything down before I try attempthing this lol. My greatest fear is bricking the system and being out all that money (especially since I've been saving for almost a year and a half to be able to afford it).
I've heard so much conflicting information, so I figured I'd come out here to try and get some straight answers from some experts lol. My husband wants the black wii, he's actually insistant on it. From everything I've heard, they're more difficult to softmod, and easier to brick. I was told by a friend of mine (who used to mod wiis, but hasn't touched one in about a year) that the black ones are pretty much impossible to mod, and that if you can get it modded that you're not able to run an external drive for your games because of new security features, and that if you burn discs, there are many different games that will immediately brick your wii on start-up.
Someone please help! Like I said, I can't afford to brick the system when I buy it because I can't afford to buy another one. I'm in a small rural area, and for me to go to buy a used one (with an older system menu) I'd have to drive almost 2 hours. If anyone out there has any experience with softmodding these new systems, please let me know. I want to make sure I have everything in place before I buy anything and end up possibly wasting money and time.
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
