    Wii U hacked !!!

    Wii U allegedly hacked, Nintendo addresses would-be pirates (updated)





    Whilesome people associate the word "jailbreaking" with prison riots or smartphone hacking, the most mainstream ofcracking subcultures also takes on video game consoles. A mod chip developerknown as WiiKey is now claiming to have reverse engineered the Wii U's disk encryption, making it possible toplay "backed up" copies of games via a USB drive. The group says its"WiikeU" optical drive emulator is region free and compatible withall Wii U console models. So far the hacking brood has yet to furnish any proofof its claims, but Nintendo is very much aware of the situation.
    Nintendo is aware that a hackinggroup claims to have compromised Wii U security; however, we have no reports ofillegal Wii U games nor unauthorized applications playable on the system whilein Wii U mode. Nintendo continuously monitors all threats to its products'security and will use technology and will take the necessary legal steps toprevent the facilitation of piracy.
    If in fact the WiiKeU is real, Nintendo could potentiallycounter the exploit with a system software update. Should such a turn of eventstake place, we could very well be looking at a return bout of console makers versus hackers. In response to Nintendo's statementon this matter, WiiKey posted a quote from the company on its website followed by four cryptic lines of code.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.
