Smash Bros. Won't Play on Modded Wii

Nintendo has reported that some Nintendo Wii consoles will not read the dual-layer Super Smash Bros. Brawl due to the system having dust and dirt on the laser. What they have yet to announce though is that they are also fighting piracy with the release of the game on the Wii, as it will not play if a mod chip is installed.

Well since I have a modchip installed looks like I will keep my "Pirated" version and skip the retail release since it will not work in my system. Thanks Nintendo now it feels guilt free.

I think they are as I bet there are some people out there with Modded Wii's that buy the must have titles at Retail, but now won't and will have to go for a pirate copy due to a crazy Nintendo piracy crackdown.

Surely Nintendo should be working on making a pirate copy not work on a modded Wii, not the original version that they are making cash on!!

Stupid Nintendo, throwing money down the drain!

As #1 mentioned, Modded Wii owners will stay with there copied SSBB, even though they may of wanted to buy the game from a store!!

How in the world can you say that you are "guilt free" when you "own" a game that you haven't actually paid for, or has been given to you as a gift?

Why not go to the local best buy and steal software as well? People gave their time and effort to make that game. They deserve to be compensated for their efforts every time that game is played.

you are whats wrong with the gaming community, I hope the next update bricks your mod Wii so all those "back-ups" are useless to you.

if you implement a antipiracy feature - make sure it works!
