It's something called a USB HARD DRIVE.

I know that is hard for you to comprehend, but there are already programs that emulate a disc drive.

The Wii also uses proprietary discs, as did the Gamecube. They are just slightly modified Bluray discs to avoid licensing costs and royalties.

Don't be so naive: Hackers will always be two steps ahead. And there's nothing to prevent that. It's fact of life.

Indeed. As a bonus, the Wii-U can't playback Blu-Ray movies.

Fantastic, right?

But with this "hack" they may beable to, like the ones who owned the earlier Wii versions could playback DVD's once modded. Then Nintendo would have to change the disc drive and mod it that only Wii/Wii U discs will be readable.

I think the hackers said this to put other hackers at bay. Like a "First", but without anything to prove it, which this is right now.

In all honesty the group behind this claim was also the first to offer similar hacks for the Wii and 360.
