    Currently, any wii can be softmodded, however the new wiis now contain D3-2 boards which prevent DVDR backups from loading, the only workaround is to use a USB Loader.

    Yes. It can be softmodded and use homebrew apps etc but however the only way for you to play backups is via USB Loader which means you will need to format an external hard drive to WBFS and install games onto it and use the wii's USB Port.

    USB Loader beats DVD Loaders as DVD Backups can only play at half the speed of originals. USB Loaders play at full speed. Using the tutorials here, your wii can easily be softmodded and used like any other wii. So its a good idea though i'd say try to get an older wii if possible.
