    I'll say that things are getting out of hand, when Nintendo updates a brick into some unsuspecting, innocent childs unmodified Wii for no reason. I can just hear it now, "daddy, why did Nintendo break my Wii?". LOL

    I did it again, sorry, the topic of this thread is on the front page, my bad.

    im like the only person who uses my wii, and i taught my 8 year old sister to use all the homebrew tools (even wad manager ROFL) so if she wants to use it its all good.
    if nintendo had their way, zero consoles would be hacked, no matter the cost. more money for them.

    Could that explain why the PS3 isn't selling much, no homebrew scene = no sales?


    Thats a joke assumption and nothing more if anyones wondering.

    From what I read the PS3 slim dosn't support Linux anymore or whatever form of support it had for it is now gone just like the PS2 backwards compatability.

    Linux the way I see it can be used as a form of homebrew.

    So it would seem but since my knowledge of Linux is very little it dosn't worry me much.
