tips on getting original accesories
wii remote - look for triwing screws by opening the battery compartment. (how do i explain this?)
nunchuck - look for triwing screws at the connector. (again, how do i explain this)
motion plus - this is quite tricky. original uses silicon cover. counterfeit one uses rubber. the easiest way to determine original items is by comparing motion + silicon with wii remote slicon. even the colour is different with counterfeit items.
balance board - look for serial number and original games. serial number is at the top lid. original games for korea is wii fit while us version is wii fit plus.
classic controller - look for triwing screws at the back.

if you want to buy wii, the best bet is buy virgin wii(unmodded). most technician stupidly install cioscorp/darkcorp which is IMHO troublesome. (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/54963-how-uninstall-cioscorp-your-wii-console.html) removing this VERY2 risky. the easiest way to determine whether cioscorp/darkcorp is installed is by testing whether the wii can play old pirate game through disc channel. there are other BETTER way. youll regret later if you have darkcorp. trust me.

if you buy black wii, the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. if you buy wii with LU64+ (eg LU64, LU65, LU66 etc) the dvd rom drive can ONLY play original game media. you still can play with usb drive though(this applies to all wii). you can find wii serial number from the bottom of the wii.

do not update wii firmware from nintendo. do not enable internet connection on your wii(unless you know what you doing) do not update firmware from game(if the game ask whether you want to update when you want to play the game). safe to say, DO NOT UPDATE YOUR WII. unless you know what you doing of course.

it is better in the long run and less risky(unbrickable brick!) if you buy us set wii. most retailer sell korean set wii which is cheaper. the problem with korean wii is that, it is in korean. the only way to enable english language is by installing us firmware. troulble arises when the wii firmware is updated. when its firmware is updated, the wii will be 'rosak' and cannot be repaired(it is possible to repair, but very2 expensive) the easies way to determine region set is by looking at the serial number. us set started with LU and korean set started with LK.

unlike other console, there are a lot of junk game on wii. and its not even funny. nevertheless, there are quite few great gems on wii. try it, or you will  got bored with your wii in no time.

unlike any other console, wii is best play with friends. make sure to buy a lot of controller accesories for wii to ensure full enjoyment not present in other console. recommended  - 4 wii remote, 2 nunchucks(4 if you want, but there are few games that support 4 nunchuck, and even fewer that worth the trouble),  2 classic controller plus, balance board.

if you want to homebrew, look for guidance form wiibrew.com, wiihacks.com(the best), complete softmod guide(google the link) and gbatemp. dont take advice and download stuff from unreputable people on the net or you risking bricking you wii.

shop around in lowyat. dont make decision quickly. shop around. if you want to buy from lowyat forum members, stevie of heavyarm is highly recommended. bought few items from him and satisfied.

Nice quote bro. Indeed heavy arm is a very responsible seller. Explains everything you need to know. I bugged him several times before. biggrin.gif
