    Hi everyone,
    Well, I heard that a Wii U exploit will be released soon and I want to be ready to use it.
    For now, is it possible to download wii u games online or anything I will find will be fake?

    Also, if it is possible to download wii u games right now, does their size are like 3ds games?
    Like 512mb, 1go, 2go or 4go. Is it similar for wii u isos?

    thanks a lot

    The Wii U exploit will not let you run ISO's, it's a userland exploit with no kernel access. As for Wii U ISO's, some are in the wild and they're up to 25-odd GB, just like normal BluRays.

    Although, if you do find legit downloads online, they will NOT be 25GB. They will be compressed to about 5 or 10 GB using RAR5 compression. The uncompressed size is 25025314816 bytes.

    While I appreciate all the effort people put to break console security and allow us full control on the system (which often lead to piracy, but it's not hackers' fault), I don't understand some boys and men who buy their consoles just to play tons of pirated games...

    Console modding/hacking used to be easy for the previous generations (ps1, ps2, psp, wii). However, hacking current and future systems becomes exponentially harder that you'll need a miracle to find a vulnerability or some leaked encryption key (for example ps3). And even after that, very often those security vulnerabilities get fixed immediately by companies that force you to update regularly so that they can detect and block any ODE and/or hardware or software modification.

    My point is : enjoy your life and your console and don't wait for it to get hacked in order to play. Buy only the games you really love, search for cheap used games, ... etc.
    If you really want a cheap way to play all the new expensive games just buy a powerful PC (you know what I mean!).

    Ah, the magical "in the works". Seeing is believing, we'll talk when it's out. Even if users will have access to a kernel exploit, USB loaders, drive chips, patches, custom IOS'es and all the peripheral crap required to launch backups won't just magically spring into existence overnight. The only jibbering I'm hearing is thinking that the Wii U is anywhere near cracked to a degree usable for average users - there's a lot of research to be done here.

    I agree with you a powerful PC isn't cheap at all but in the long run it is the only solution for pirates who want to easily "play" current-gen games. As we can notice nowadays, almost every major game get PC/XB1/PS4 release (GTA, Mortal Kombat, Fifa&PES...). But as you said you ll never be able to play nintendo gems on PC :(

    Yes, all the non-existant XBO and PS4 emulators and all the 1FPS X360/PS3 emulators, good advice.

    The days of PS1 and N64 emulation is far behind us. Heck, there's still no great emulator for the original Xbox. The power and work needed to make emulators for recent consoles are increasing exponentially. I wouldn't wait for an emulator to come around, as it could take 10+ years for a playable one with good compatibility to come around for something like the Wii U. Not saying it will, just that I won't be holding my breath.

    As for the topic. I recommend you just buy your games. There's not that many great games for the Wii U, yet, so it wouldn't be that expensive of an endeavour.

    The first thing I did was to click on the download link, and, you guessed it, it won't even let me get the EXE without completing a stupid survey. :rofl:

    Even so, what we really need for backup loaders to work is an IOSU exploit, something that hasn't been found yet.
