    Which console to buy?

    Hi. I want a second Wii and i'd like to know if there are something different between the red, black, white consoles?

    Are they all softmod ready?

    I heard about black ones doesn't read DVD-R is that true?

    Any new serial to avoid?

    Thanks!

    All new Wiis will not read DVDR media, so you must go with USB loading, other than that, all can be softmodded...

    Buying a Wii that can read DVD-R discs is not possible anymore, no matter what colour it is. Unless you buy a secondhand of course. All Wii's can be softmodded and use USB loading though.

    You can swap the DVD logic board. That is the part that prevents DVDR, the actual mechanical part still works fine.

    This means you wouldnt need to replace the whole drive.

    I sell quite a lot of these boards.

    Is the latest consoles are the same housing as the old ones? If I understand, I can swap electronics from an old one to a newest one?

    As far as I know, the only difference is the color.
