Not within a week, it won't. Let's also not forget that Nintendo is now forcing people online, like Microsoft does. This means that they'll start bricking consoles, since it's totally legal to do so.


They wont be bricking anything. permabanning the console(and probably the NN account), but just because they say they can brick you doesnt mean they will, or that its actually legal for them to do so.

Hackers can also just not connect to the internet and get away with whatever they want until they can circumvent Nintendo's control.


It is very legal for them to brick consoles. MS was sued over bricking some 2500 consoles for modding, and the case eventually went to the Supreme Court, who sided with MS.

As for not connecting to the internet, they do it with MS, so they'll do it with Nintendo.

And, as has been posted already, they still haven't hacked the 3DS, which is the fastest-selling gaming device in history.

Because, tizzywilkillyou, if you're going to moan and complain about something, it would be nice if you know what you are talking about to begin with.


I need you to spell out for me why expecting the file system to work the way it did on Wii/3DS's external storage is absurd enough to indicate a lack of "knowledge of tech". Because you're not making sense.

Source on that? Never heard anything about it and a quick google search turned up nothing.

The 3DS's popularity does not make it more or less likely to be hacked, or at least it doesnt effect it as much as you would like to believe. There isnt a legitimate reason to hack it yet, once there is, the legitimate hackers(I.E. people who dont just want free games) will at least get some kind of access. They always do.

I doubt they will break it open as easy as the Wii or PS3, but they'll get enough to do what they want(PokÚsav). Same with the Wii U, it'll get hacked. Probably not nearly as painless and risk-free as the Wii, but it'll be there in no time.

So say goodbye to thinking you can use your 2TB Hard Drive for your ps3, pc and plug it into the wii u or BACKING UP wii u games on your pc.

The Hard Drive is ONLY formatted for the Wii U and if you plug it into your pc, ps3 or anything else the DATA WILL BE ERASED and you CANNOT ACCESS your data unless you format it first.

/facepalm

Well this is Gamefaqs, uninformed TCs are common.
Don't worry peeps.

Google 'hard drive partitions', ty come again.

My current 3TB's setup:
MAC- 1tb
PC backups- 500gb
Wii Homebrew- 500gb
PS3- 500gb
unallocated (for WiiU)- 500gb

A quick google search won't turn up anything - this happened years ago.

If your reason is solely based on partitioning ability:

1. We don't know for a fact that the Wii U will recognize partitions. It PROBABLY will, but...
2. Even then, this is still not as convenient as having the Wii U recognize NTFS.
3. Wanting or expecting (based on Wii and 3DS) FAT32 support (or NTFS as then case may be) in and of itself does not demonstrate a lack of knowledge of tech.
