As in the cool dad who buys you beer? What I mean is I had a modded Xbox back in the day, and I remember having to get a program and another program to get a password to enter Xbins for the homebrew. Sony sued the guy who modded the PS3 or something, but I've never seen any indication Nintendo cares. Cartridge ROMs are openly available on a number of websites, the homebrew for the Wii is as well, and if I understand correctly, there wasn't much of an effort to prevent the Wii U from being moddable since people figured it out pretty fast. They have shown signs of being stingy (removing the GC ports from later Wii models), but never litigious, even though they most likely lost money to some extent because most classic games were in their store. Though, that amount of money was probably like taking a couple hundred gallons of water from the ocean considering the Wii was the number one selling system for quite a while. I think the PS4 broke that record, though.
