    The annual C3 hacker conference, this year being 33C3, is set to run from the 27th of December to the 30th of December. It is one of the main European hacker conferences and invariably features loads of interesting talks on a variety of things hackers might be interested in. If you have ever wanted to learn how to hack things then "start watching these" is a good answer.
    Previous years have showcased hacking of the Wii, PS3, 3ds and more besides. This year has a Nintendo talk scheduled with the 3ds and wii u mentioned, there is also a talk on the PS4, pinball machines, a talk on the hardware of the original gameboy line and a dissection of a 16 bit era dos game in case you ever wondered what it really takes to port an old game you lack source code for. It is certainly not all games though so do check out the Farhplan/schedule for more.

    Do remember this is Berlin/Hamburg/CET time or presently GMT+1

    You can try to watch things live if you want, however you might be better off waiting for things to appear on the C3 youtube channels. There are also a few hackerspaces streaming the events.

    What talks are you looking forward to?

    I know, I just don't understand why they'd make the letters backwards and not the full word. If you do read it backwards you get what I wrote :P

    Hmm. Interesting! I would wanna see some 3ds and Wii U mods to be talked about primarily, but the gameboy consoles?! That was my good shit when I was a kid. Man I miss those days when GB games were the hot stuff. It's like Call Of Duty or the PS Vita or whatever portable console Sony comes up with. (sorry I don't play Xbox or Playstation) Nintendo all the way! :D

    Plzzzzzzzz.... *wishes for A11LH or a superb DG vulnerability on 11.0 and up* Better yet an arm9 kernel exploit for 10.x and 11.x like 9.2 ;$$$$

    I hope so too, otherwise I need to send mine in to get modded (I was dumb and didn't buy DSiware soon enough)

    i also expect plans to break the switch on day -69 (69 days before release) and make kimishima open his jaw, realizing his weak ass console is too easily hacked and become more secured like sony

    LMAO yeah. I agree. Plus they don't even care anymore about the iOS U exploit. Like, AT LEAST PATCH IT BEFORE QUITTING SENDING OUT THE UPDATES?! Also Nintendo didn't fully patch svchax used to dg using arm11 kernel. 11.0 just made it harder for hackers to use that vulnerablility.

    EDIT: Sorry if that was off topic, but just trying to prove his point.

    I thought Smea wasn't going to present :O
    ....Also, I really don't think there is going to be bootromhax, as it's ROM. :(
