Someone recently pointed me towards yet another gamecube mod. At first i didnt pay much attention to it as i stick with ps2 things and not gamecube junk but there was something very interesting about this mod at second glance. More on that later. Lets talk about the mod first.
The Ninjachip, third gamecube modchip to hit the scene with the usual 7 wire install exactly like the ripperGC. Not much else is known about the ninja beyond its obvious roots to the viper and ripper. The ninjamod team themselves are known for simply re-marketing clones. Their first chip being an ICE clone created by HK-Mods and sold under their name.
Now the interesting issue lies in the ninjamod's rather sloppy hardware. From the clues given about repackaging and remarketing hardware thats sold to them one can possibly conclude that HK or some other well known rippers have managed to get to the gamecube or known gamecube mods already?
Very interesting indeed, only time will tell. Hopefully the real GC sceners will be the true voice of the scene and not those of lamers and cloners.
