In the past MONTHS, the only thing remarkable I recall being released was LiteNESU, an NES emulator (which still requires quite a lot of work but it's an awesome proof of concept). All I seem to see are promises never being fulfilled, for example, a long time ago, I recall a dev claiming they had an exploit that would work on the latest firmware version (whatever it was at that time), but it never came. What about the IOSU exploit? How late is that...oh, you know, 3 or 4 months now! It's gotten to the point where I don't believe someone possess an exploit until it's officially released. And don't say I have no respect for devs; trust me, I have immense respect for them, they're the ones that breath life into the homebrew/hacking scene, and I am nowhere near capable of what they are. But it seems that we're at a standstill in which no one wants to release anything, be it for personal benefit or "it's not necessary at this time", and I don't see a remotely-near future in which a significant increase in devs/development for exploits and homebrew occurs, in fact, the Wii U scene could be dead right now. Anyone else share these opinions? Any arguments? Also, check out this thread: http://gbatemp.net/threads/discussion-why-5-5-x-is-ready-for-its-kexploit.418062/ So here's my essential question: Is the Wii U scene doomed, or is it just in a bad place for the time being? Don't mistake this for a complaint thread about the IOSU exploit. It was just an example.
