    Are you asking what is better to buy new or old wii? Buy new you get a warranty and it can still be hacked!!

    Hello and welcome to the wiihacks community. All Wiis can be softmodded; one thing of which to be aware is that the newer Wiis are likely to have a Wii Drive chip, D3-2, that prevents the Wii drive from reading backup discs. The workarounds are to play from an external USB HDD, buy a WODE, or to replace the circuit board of the DVD drive.
