    Lawl, nice! :P That's quite a bug right there. Here's for hoping that the Big N was sloppy with some other parts of the firmware as well, if you catch my drift.

    ah it's too late for that, once this is out in the wild nintendo will catch on and patch it, after all have a solid firmware update system in place so any exploits will be patched quite quickly, lets hope this gets into hackers hands soon so they can do something with this.

    The "Admin" refers to the console itself, methinks - it's just an Administrator's Account capable of adding and removing Mii's from his own screen - he's not moderating the MiiVerse now. :P

    Well this does offer some hope that some sort of exploit will be found for the machine.

    Bullshit, so much bullshit. I can't believe people think this is real. Did anyone actually read the full post? Oh well, guess pointless hope is better than no hope.

    Not to mention the screenshots are way too low res to seem plausible.

    Yeah man; you're right.

    3264x1840 IS SUCH A FUCKING LOW RESOLUTION.

    EVERYTHING IS FAKE YOU GUYS.

    Holy fucking shit, some people are dumb.

    I guess this guy just KNOWS kanji, hiragana and katakana, took a picture of his TV, somehow got perfectly clean ultrahd images of the Wii U message board, edited the shit out of their content, adding Japanese writing into them and new debug GUIs that perfectly replicate the style of the rest of the GUIs in the Wii U that professional artists will get paid shedloads to design, skewed the finished screenshots and perfectly anisotropically filtered them, and then applied some kind of super realistic filter that looks exactly like an LCD TV screen, right?

    The guy even said that he reported it to Nintendo; he didn't even do anything with it! There would be literally no reason to fake this, and it'd be near impossible.

    Looks like the guy who is accusing everyone of not reading the full post didn't even scroll down to the fucking ultrahd images. Well done there, Maxwell.

    The topic has a lot of pages ...and the story is too recent to be evident to everyone that it's "bullshit".

    He just updated the first post though:

    That link did not look like 3264x1840. There was literally no higher res version than the shitty thumbnails.
    But regardless, the screenshots are clearly a much lower resolution than the images you linked, and regardless of resolution, it's not proof at all. It looks vaguely real, that's all.

    Why can't it be the web browser displaying a web page? Does he show both the GamePad and TV in the same screenshot?
