    Is it really that strange? The Wii is old and will soon be replaced by the WiiU.

    Also, did we really need yet another topic on this matter? >_>

    I would assume they gave up on trying to protect the wii and are now focusing on the 3DS and making the Wii U hard to hack.

    This is stupid. Of course they haven't given up on piracy. They've just given up on making the wii unhackable. And not just now, but at least since letterbomb made even the 4.3 hackable without needing any game whatsoever.

    If it is even possible, it would cost much more than they would gain. Assuming there is any gain to begin with (it's not like people who are pirating will suddenly all buy ALL the games they now download).

    hey guys there's 50 SS threads but hell, lets make another pointless one.

    They gave up on piracy long ago. There's no point fighting it, any effort would be completely futile and pointless.

    yeah i think this should be closed so we can avoid flame wars and crap. once the wii was hacked it went almost downhill but not quite down the hill yet.
