That's a pretty wide gap between the last and second-to-last option.

That's because I don't really think that it will take that long.

if nintendo can brick your systems by online checkups, i'd have to reconsider getting it at launch and will have to wait and see if my beloved horror series gets localized at all in my country. if not, i'll have to *gulp* buy a jpn wii u.

It took roughly 2 years for the Wii to be hacked, and I'd guess that Nintendo would be better about securing their system... so 2 years + for Wii U hacking is my guess.

But, I have high hopes for 'Wii Mode' hacks occurring long before then --- dependent on how backwards compatibility is handled.

When Episode 3 is released, a.k.a never. We'll get episode 4 first,

And before that Gaben wants to pursue a music carrer:

And then Valve has to ship Portal 3, Dota 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Counter Strike 2, Team Fortress 3, Team Dota, Counter Portal, Left 4 Strike, Team Counter Portal 4 Dota Life Episode 3.

I don't think it will take that long since the Wii U is basically a Wii with better graphics.

I think it might be really easy, since it is backwards compatible with Wii games. Unless they pull a Sony and remove the ability to play Brawl.

Considering the 3DS still cant be efficiently cracked, Your choice are pretty poor when you skip from 6 months to Never

It won't be nearly as easy to hack the Wii U as it was to hack the Wii. Just look at the 3DS, it can run a DS flashcard in DS mode only, DSi mode hasn't even been cracked yet. Nintendo has learned from their past mistakes on AP.
