    It's not that they're too stupid, it's the lack of ability. What are they gonna do, ban your Wii? When you turn it on, a big [​IMG] is gonna show up on the middle of the screen?

    I'll never understand the mentality of people that want to cheat in competitive play. There's no satisfaction is you don't earn the win, or any fun.

    The only fun one can obtain is if they enjoy being a troll/asshole, because no one in real-life likes them.

    Putting the children's responses aside, this has been discussed multiple times. At this time if Nintendo can do anything, they are not. Or ... they can't do anything about it. Either way you are totally safe.

    Nintendo can't see your Wii at all, so everything's safe. If they really wanted to then you'd see someone come to your door and have a look at it. But the chances of that are really, really small.

    Frankly, they've never been one to beat a dead horse.

    Instead of making improvements on current projects, they release new ones to make up for it.

    The Wii and DS are the first exceptions to this, as they have the ability to provide patches for these consoles.


    Um... you do realize all of the games are hosted on their private servers, right?

    They have as much access as Microsoft or Sony do on their consoles.

    Those games can't see what's on your Wii.
    But the Nintendo Channel can, so perhaps you should be more careful with that

    The Nintendo Channel can see channels and that...But i've already sent data about the American version of Defend your Castle and nothing has happened. They can't do anything to your Wii, even if they can see it.

    Um.... actually, they could send you a cease and desist letter, just as easily as the RIAA and movie studios do...


    You aren't immune from anything on the internet.

    Uh.... don't underestimate Nintendo's legal department.

    They have taken down more sites and piracy groups than any other company.

    They can't really do anything to your Wii unless you accept it. If you didn't and you Wii got bricked, wouldn't that be...vandalism, which is illegal? [​IMG]

    The FCC and similar regulatory organizations around the world that any consumer device is required to accept any transmission within the frequency the device operates. Thus, you can't sue cordless phone makers for making phones within the 900Mhz and 2.4Ghz ranges for interfering with your DSL and WiFi, respectively.

    Nintendo also holds certain statues of intellectual property rights that state they are allowed to protect their intellectual property via any means necessary. This primarily outlines their legal reach, but also extends to product updates.

    If they were to release something that would brick a Wii(a very unlikely occurrance for an unmodified Wii), it would be followed by appropriate measures to correct it. But, if you modify your Wii by using 3rd party hardware and software to circumvent, enhance, or otherwise alter the operation of the console, then you've already voided your warranty and they won't be accountable.

    So, if your Wii were to get bricked from hacking online play, not only would they not be accountable for your loss, but they could actually sue you for damages. Blizzard quotes about $25,000 per infraction and I'm pretty sure that's the going rate everywhere.



    Always remember to read the fine print... especially if you're going to spew misinformation on a forum so callously.
