    I have purchased a lot of games and accessories and have never hacked my wii u.
    I do not own much 3ds stuff though.

    Well it makes sense because there aren't any public iso loaders for wii u yet.

    I can hack my wii u but supporting it should get Nintendo to survive next couple years. I have defended wii u against the corrupted ps4 and xbox one players a lot recently.

    Piracy isn't going to contribute to a console's demise. It never has. The Wii U's failures up to late 2014 are poor planning and implementation from Nintendo's part. Either you're against 'software piracy' or for it, you're already pirating 3DS games so we'll assume you're for piracy. Don't fool yourself, if there was a method to pirate Wii U games you'd be doing that too. You aren't redeeming yourself by 'supporting' them halfway, in my opinion.

    I don't "support" the Wii U, I just buy overpriced games for it and some end up being crap.

    Piracy is never right, doesn't matter if you buy your games for another of their systems.
    With that said, i pirated the shit out of my Xbox 360 and it felt so good.

    What? No.

    Buy the games you actually like and therefore you support them this way.

    Piracy may have helped selling a lot of PSP units but the software sales were in the shitter.

    Wait, you can use pirated games on the 3ds now? Maybe it's time i get a 3ds now. I didn't want to buy one until there was the ability to do that. Let me start doing some research.

    That's like stealing bananas while trying to justify it by paying for apples. You are a pirate no matter the reasoning and as long as you are aware of your wrong-doing everything is fine.

    I use homebrew, yet I buy all my games. All my ROMs and ISOs I even dumped myself. I like the convenience homebrew provides, but I also like having my own games and working within the law. So I have the best of both.
