    Well, that was quick. Someone in the security department must've really screwed up - that's one of the quickest hacks in history, as if they didn't even try all that hard. That said, I wonder how much can be done with the system at this point.​

    The thing that annoys me here is that they don't specify what this means, or what they've done.
    They don't need to explain what method they used, or even anything technical.
    I just wish they'd say what we can perhaps expect from this progress, whatever progress that is.

    fail0verflow doesn't really give press releases unless they have something big prepared - this is just a teaser.

    Wow. Too bad I don't have any plans to buy a WiiU anytime soon even if was hacked. I still have my Wii and I have a ton of games to finish on it before I would even consider purchasing a WiiU. That being said, I'm looking forward to how they pulled this off. I didn't think the WiiU would be hacked this quickly.

    Didn't Nintendo say they had a plan already prepared where they could change like some parts of the Wii U (or change something, can't recall what) just in case the Wii U ever did get hacked?

    If this is legit - and all signs are pointing to yes - then yes:

    A. Nintendo must be crying
    B. Everyone else must be celebrating.

    o.O' coolios. I know I don't have to worry too much, but I rather these hacks stay under the sheets for another year. Online play tends to get ruined to the point you can't PUB.
