numbers can't be copyrighted spy beef, hence why the ps3 key couldn't be taken off digg.com as it isn't illegal to paste numbers and letters on the internet to sony's annoyance.

But it could be against forum rules. Just like saying letters spelling out a link to a torrent is not illegal as they are just letters , but I'm sure id get banned for it.

Just saying.

On the plus side it should help Wii U Sales. I always wait until I can hack the crap out of a system before I buy it.

@marcan42 just tweeted: Pro tip: 40 character hex strings are usually SHA1 hashes, not encryption keys.

He is the guy who found out the clock speeds and cache of the wii u a few days ago.

Indeed, there are usually some fun homebrew things to do with a console that doesn't involve pirating games. My daughter's original Wii has a few applications on there that she uses never mind dumping her games to a hard drive, even older original XBox still running XBMC in a spare bedroom, etc.

Well, that worked out nicely, Nintendo... :laugh:

Oh God, I'm so desperately waiting for the day consoles are free from the need to do all that jazz.

Also, I hope that in future emulation of current consoles (and ongoing) will be possible again.

AFAIK there are no 360 and PS3 emulators, which is sad, because one day those consoles will break and you might still want to play those games (exclusives that never made it to the PC platform).

But it's all against honest customers, for the sake of pseudo-limiting the bad folks.

Meh...

Rant over.

Lol! That was cracked very fast. Developer 3DS consoles made it out into the wild and yet nothing has came from it, in a few weeks the Wii U has it's master retail key dumped and posted...

How long did it take to hack the original Wii? Thought it was only a few months.

Not sure, but yeah, that was definitely a speedy hack.

I would like it very much if the Wii U was hacked. I own a Wii U Deluxe set you know. I would like to be able to get games from the e-shop for free.

No, it's due to people thinking that people like him can be stopped by those doomed-to-fail attempts, which are thought to be justified even in spite of all the legitimate users who get screwed by them.

Don't distract from the decision makers in terms of who to hold responsible, otherwise you're letting them have a field-day defending bullcrap decisions that are limiting you - the honest buyer.

It's like saying DRM is justified, even though the pirates get their stuff for free anyways, but we can all feel better doing something, even if we cut into our own flesh.

I agree with the both of you on this one. :)

I doubt that's the master encryption keys, somehow. Seems way too easy to be true.

However, if it is... extremely bad times for Nintendo. Piracy rampant from the 1st month = major issue for Nintendo. The Wii was saved from this due to the technical hurdles being involved which discouraged most users (who were casual gamers) from doing it - the Wii U doesn't really have this backup as of yet. Not only that, but Nintendo aren't profiting directly from the Wii U either.

Nintendo makes money from Wii U after one game is sold.

Only first party titles and only barely,nothing that would keep the company alive. and that doesn't take dev costs into account.

Sorry but the amount f users who genuinely want to do homebrew and stuff like that instead of pirating is so small percentage wise that it's irrelevant and their "inconvenience" is of no concern, regular legal users don't even notice the DRM in modern consoles.

and for those that want to do homebrew, well that's what computers are for.

No, it was coined from old programmers 'hacking' pieces of code together to make programs that might potentially work.

and for those that want to do homebrew, well that's what computers are for.

Eh? What a dumb attitude. Some of the best games for consoles are homebrew. REAXION is by far one of the best games made, starting on C64 and being ported to loads of consoles, a score save feature would make it awesome but it's brilliant as-is for the GBA for instance.
