Just saying, I've yet to see any proof that the Wii U was hacked.

Doesn't sound like a great hack. It's nothing along the lines of homebrew anyway.

which hack are you referring to?

I know there are many, but I was referring to the recent one that allows you to play games via usb.

Yeah that one. There's no software to support it that I know of, or at least I don't think the software would be easy to install at this point. I haven't really checked out the U's homebrew scene in a couple of months, but there was nothing for the U part of the Wii U that I saw last. Hacking a port without hacking software too won't be incredibly useful even for piracy, especially seeing as there aren't even many games. Besides, most people have a homebrewed Wii from what I can tell, so I'm guessing they will have to offer some unique things for the U's hacks in order for that to become more mainstream. I'm fairly surprised this made the news on Gamespot.
This is my serious face.

Under this basis it will be more like the Wii situation,without the help of casual boom this time, where the only games that will do well are the ones that people wouldn't bother to pirate(casual-ware, shovelware,Nintendo games) Good games will suffer though, I feel sorry for whatever niche/hardcore 3rd party dev that makes a Wii U exclusive.

This won't help the 3rd party situation either since no 3rd party dev will want to support the Wii U, even if Nintendo massively money hats said game.

TBH this is the fastest system to be hacked this efficiently. If right now it only runs for proper back-ups. It's a short time(months now) till it'll be fully opened for homebrew and other applications.

It's kinda funny because nintendo disabled the ability to remove the usb drive when the console is on to prevent the same thing and yet it happened anyway.

Nintendo made it so that any USB put in has to be formatted to work on the console. In turn, no computer can read the USB drive.

They also made it so that if you try to take out a thumb drive during the wii u being on, that it will give you an error and you will have to reset the wii u. And this is without using anything in the thumb drive (so I've heard and seen on videos. dont own a wii u (yet)).

Hu. I did not know that. Haven't needed a USB yet.

How lame do you have to be to consistently use "pony" as an insult? Freaking pathetic....are you guys members of the Apple-Dumpling Gang or something?

About as lame as you have to be to use Nintendrone

Anyway, wouldn't the way it was hacked actually increase console sales?

The hackers claim that they have hacked the Wii U's file system and encryption system. If that's true (and there is no reason to doubt them) then it renders that security feature useless.

Lets see:

-The Nes had billions of pirated carts... in fact, in some countries, it was easier to find a pirated cart than an original one. Less than one year after the Nes was released, even the region lock was easy to circumvent (by using cheap and easy to find adapters). Yet, the Nes was a success for YEARS, and even made the more powerful Master System seem like a joke;

-The Snes was pirated the first year it was released. Pirated carts looked rough around the edges, but where easy to find... and cheap. Yet, the Snes was a HUGE success for MANY years, even after the 32 bit machines where around;

-The Playstation was VERY easy to pirate. On the first few months, people where already playing pirated games by using the swap trick, and after one year, mod chips where a reality already. The Playstation was a huge success anyway;

-The Dreamcast was a huge success in the begining. The problem is that Sega pulled the plug on it too soon, specially after spending so much money with Shenmue (the game was so expensive to make that even if every DC owner bought one copy, the game would still represent a financial loss). Hacks didn't kill the Dreamcast, Sega did;

-The Wii was hacked very early on its lifespan, and was the easiest 128 bit console to play pirated games. Yet, the Wii sold VERY well.

-The GBA was hacked quite early too. Not only that, but its games where TOO easy to dumb. And a emulator appeared even before the console hit the USA. Yet, the GBA was a success.

Yeah, Nintendo is DOOMED. /Sarcasm.
