DVD playback on Wii using modchip. August 20, 2007Posted by stvchang in DVD, gaming news, Nintendo, Wii.
A mod chip company has created an application for owners of its Wii modchips. Apparently this new application will allow their modchip owners to use the Wii as a DVD player!
Late last year, Nintendo have announced DVD playback enabled Wii to be shipped to Japan only sometime in 2007, but that has yet to happen. With no official announcement on DVD playback for Wii in other parts of the world, this maybe good news for those out there who don’t have a standalone DVD player.
However, in this part of the world where local and China made DVD players are dirt cheap, this may not be a good reason to chip your Wii and void the warranty.
