    Lightbulb Nii a Mix between a NES and a Wii

    This is a project that i have been working on for a few weeks now. My Wii had a disk read error and would not play any games. So i ordered a Drive online and it said it would be here in like 2 weeks so i had my wii all apart on my desk. Waiting for my drive i was working on my car when i saw my old NES that was on the shelf since i stopped working 5 years ago. sitting there i wanted to make a NES Wii so i set forth cutting the NES as clean from all of the stands and other mounts as i could.

    then i took the wii and set it in and got it all situated. i got screws and put it to the bottom of the case. next i mounted the drive to the top the NES and had to cut the slot 2in lager to make room for the disks.

    next i got plastic and made a cover to fill the holes in the face that was not needed.

    last i bought a Wii AC power extender and a IR extender and mounted them to the back leaving the AV stuck out of the Side of the NES case after a little cutting on the wii i got the wii to fit. as you see in the pictures on the page the break down of it. I have the reset to eject disk and the power to start the wii the LED works also. If i where to sell this with a wii motion plus controller do you think i could get 700 for it? or what would you pay.

    Sweet! Looks good. See what being bored can do? Brings out the best in everyone.

    If its fully functional and looks like it was made that way, I'd say you could sell it for a decent price. You just gotta find that one person that thinks it's the coolest thing they've seen and they'll bust out their check book. But 700? That's a bit extreme don't you think? Have you found anything similar on the net that you could compare it to?

    Used Wii's around here (pawn shops, Craigslist, etc) go for about $75-$125, but that's not modded and usually with only one controller, nothing else. Maybe someone that sells a lot of Wii's can come in and "appraise" it for you.....but I doubt anything near $700. Regardless still very cool....

    yes it is fully working and runs like a charm. 700 might be a little high but then again i have only found 2 other people online that have moded there Wii into a NES so it is rare and i have to say very cool. i have about 200 in parts and controler and stuff. also this wii has been softmoded so you can play all the old NES games on it with an emulator witch makes it that much cooler since you can play the NES games on your "NES" and will look more authentic.

    Thats an awesome and very creative idea! and a great prototype.

    From the pictures I couldnt tell... Is there access to the ports? Like the USB/SD/ game cube controllers with out having to open up the NES?
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    I wish Photobucket wasn't blocked at work so I could see the actual unit. Only 2 people online that have done this huh? I know of at least two different step by step guides online to put a Wii in a Nintendo case so I don't think it's quite as rare as you think. And $700?!?!?!? You could buy a Wii, 360, and PS3 for $700. If I were to buy a Wii in a NES case I don't think I would go above $300 and that would only be only if the Wii was brand new, the Nintendo case was in immaculate condition, and there is a functioning SD Slot and GC ports mounted in an easily accessible area. But that's just me. You might get lucky and find someone with enough extra cash, doesn't have the technical know how to follow a guide to make their own, just plain doesn't want to make their own, or doesn't want to source the materials who is willing to pay you a ridiculous amount of money for it.

    I would sell it as a 'Wii-Nii'. Thats just me. Just be sure to include the size of the unit in the ad.


    ie:One used Wii-Nii for sale. As big as an original NES. $700 obo...

    Looks quite interesting. I've built the N64 in a LEGO building once for school.
