I probably havent touch my wii in over a year... at least! it has a wiikey and i can update it to the newest firmware avaible for that original chip. I hear this chip doesn't allow playing of originals or limits the system? should i not update the dash? it hasn't been updated in well over a year. Does the new dash cripple the chip? Thanks for any tips, I am just WAY out of the loop. I just some some neat games coming out soon, and thought it might be time to plug it back in. (scorpion stinging a rat in the brain!!!!!!) heheh and maybe house of the dead extreme?
