Where For..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Where would be the right place to go for Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii modifying? Well, maybe not modifying.. I saw the Action Replay stuff, for like 20 bucks. And another thing on YouTube, where you can store everything on one card. I'm pretty oblivious to Nintendo stuff. Never was a fan. But I'm yearning Pokemon, and I need a DS for that(I want to play the new ones on the go). Plus the Wii is for a family ideal thing. I know my cousin has a way of getting free Wii games. Now, I'm not really interested in getting free games, I like having the boxes for what I own, unless its a Steam game of course. Plus I can't play the NHL game without the hockey stick =P

I am getting the Black Wii. And a DS.

What I want to know:
What neat cool things that aren't really advertised could I do with the Wii and/or DS?
Other than the comparison chart on the DS website, is there anything else I should know about the lite/XL/etc?
Is there like an all in one pack for some/most of the things?
I really want Action Replay/or whatever else. I love me some masterballs! and such.
Any good resources for this sorta thing?

Well, because you're getting a Black Wii you can't run DVDs on it. But if you want to "unlock" your Wii so to speak, you'll have to put Homebrew on it. In turn, this would let you back up your Wii games onto a properly formatted external hard drive so you don't have to take them out of the case to play them and risk the chance of them getting broken for whatever reason.

As for the DS, there's not really anything you need to know as far as the basic differences between the versions, there are action replay type things available for you.

Try looking here.

What Wii can play DVDs? To be honest thats not even a loss, unless I need a DVD drive to run ISOs or whatever be it for a reason.

Update: Okay so I looked around our forums a bit, and found the new handset from Nintendo is coming out next year, I'll just wait for that. Is there any new console talks though? A Wiinu? lol. Or is the Wii going to be around for a bit?

The older Wiis can play burned DVDs, but the newer Black, Red, and White ones cannot. I think the Wii will be around for at least another 2-3 years as right now Nintendo is mainly focusing on the 3DS and will be for quite awhile.

So I have my black Wii, been playing Wii sports with people. Don't have money to buy games yet. I was looking and saw you can't use SD cards over 2 or 4 GB? What gives?
