Pirated Nintendo Wii Games and Modchip Spotted
Rocky and I just learned about the latest on the Nintendo Wii modchip department. Our last trip to Greenhills Shopping Center's V-Mall last March 24th 2007 yielded the image above. About 50+ pirated Nintendo Wii DVD games being sold at P350 (approx. USD $7.14) each and Wii system modifications are now available. You can see on the photo that the game infront of the rack is the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which only retails for P350, far from the P3500+ price tag of a legit game from DataBlitz.
I've asked the salesladies about the modchip being used, both of them (including the technician) were clueless on what chip it was and if it could also play pirated Nintendo GameCube discs. They even called someone when I asked for the price of each bootleg Nintendo Wii game since the games just arrived. Their store offers Wii modification for P2,500 (approx. USD $51.02).
After learning about this info, Rocky decided to asked around Shopesville. One stall was selling a modified US Nintendo Wii plus 5 pirated games of your choice for P22,000 (approx. USD $448.98). You'll be surprised that they're selling a modified XBOX 360 with 10 pirated games for only P19,000 (approx. USD $387.76).
If you wanted to modify your Nintendo Wii to play import games, GameOPS recommends EYO Sales. EYO revolutionized the import-modchip thing in the Philippines since they were really the ones who started the modchip business here. They offer Wii modifications for P3,500 (approx. USD $71.43). A bit expensive but you're sure your system will be safe. You may contact EYO Sales at +63(2)724-0755 and look for Eric, EYO Sales' owner. (GameOPS does not endorse bootleg games)
If Wii modchips and pirated games continue to proliferate, we might as well see Nintendo Wii as the next Sony PlayStation 2 of the Philippines.
