I was recently playing Mario Kart 7 online in a worldwide race and there was a hacker that kept on using bombs/shells/stars to torment us. If Nintendo (hopefully) decided to ban this cheater, what are his consequences? Is it a console ban? Or just a ban from Mario Kart in general. How long does the ban last? Does Nintendo have the ability to IP ban people? If it's a console ban, is he banned from all services? Thanks for your answers in advance, and before anyone asks; no I don't intend to hack on Mario Kart 7 or any competitive game. I hacked once in Mario Kart wii and I saw no fun in it. I do hack on Animal Crossing however, but that's just to give free items and bells to my friends.
