    I've just watched the following YouTube video:-



    Does this mean that I can download Wii U games from the net (If I can find any) then copy them to an SD card and play them without havng to hack the Wii U??

    Thanks in advance

    you BUY the game off the Eshop
    and with a usb sd card reader

    If you are looking to play copied games like that, you are out of luck. Software obtained from the eShop is encrypted and has similar security like on the 3ds.
