Another chip CycloWiz is announced. And promise : - Quicksolder (no wires required) - Plays Wii Backups - Plays GC Backups - Play GC Homebrew - Play GC Imports (swap needed) - Built-in Audiofix (GC games using streaming are working flawlessly, no patch needed) - DVD-R / DVD+R support - Optional chip disable wire - Stealth even when chip is enabled - Multi-purpose LED The chip is supposed to be shipped by the end of the week, so in fact this may be the first “real” Modchip to reach the market! I won’t post any url. But try seek it up, to get the pictures of it.

i just hope that this will not turn off wii developers, and this could help wii sales unless there is a ps3 mod chip or iso booter, i don’t think ps3 will be hard sell at this price point.
