    No stuffing around, nothing to worry about.

    Shadows ftw
    I agree with you Trekster, for me softmod is the way to go. I'm happy with how it works, and I enjoy messing with mods and features.

    But there are lots of people out there that are unable or just don't won't the hassle of softmodding.
    The idea of a standard Wii, let it update if it wants, running your backups, and Favs GC ISO's, with no worries, (good aussie term) is very attractive.

    Thanks for all the advice but I successfully soft modded my Wii this weekend using shadows guide and everything is working beautifully...in my opinion there's no need for a Wode, It's just a waste of money!!!

    For you - but for others who do not want to have a soft modded Wii it is not.

    My son bricked his modded Wii at school because a mate wanted to go shopping on line and updated. The WODE allows him play all his games via HDD (as you can with a softmod) but without the worry of a similar problem happening again. So it is a case of horses for courses yes?

    I think that wode has some amazing potential and that it is a very good option for people who aren't confortable with softmodding and loading ios's and patched iso's and such. Plug it in or have someone do it for you and play.

    Personally I prefer softmodding, I actually have more fun modding it then actually playing the wii. The fact that it's free is also a big plus for me.

    Yeah the WODE just doesn't offer any superior functionality that I don't already have with soft mods. I wouldn't get one until later on down the road after it's been thoroughly tried and tested and possibly improved. This is the case with all kinds of new technology. By buying the first run of the device you are essentially a guinea pig.

    Don't get me wrong, it is great for people who don't want to mess with soft mods, but who's to say in the future Nintendo will not find a way to block the device from being able to load games? Should that ever happen you will need to soft mod your Wii anyway, which you could have done in the first place for free.

    I've had my Wii modded for years now and I've never had any issues doing anything I've ever wanted to do, whether it be playing burned Wii games, burned Gamecube games, or use homebrew, and being soft modded I have the added bonus of a nice GUI loader for all my games. Really the only argument that can be used in favor of the WODE is the ability to load Gamecube games from a USB hard drive, but for the few Gamecube games I actually care to play, I can just burn a DVD-R and my Wii reads them no problem thanks to the mod chip I already have installed.

    My advice would be to wait and see what the future holds for the WODE.
    Hail to the king, baby!

    D2C2-equipped Wii + Wasabi V3 = I love Nintendo! (and big boobs)

    I have a modchip also, As like others have posted the benefits of the wode with gc-iso loading are outweighed by the cost of softmodding ($0) and the features you can get.
