    We are STARTING to be able to hack/emulate the Wii U that, what's happening next year? A new Nintendo console get released.
    Before we get the console as much hacked as the wii is, Nx will be released for a while.
    What are you thinking about it? Do you think we can make it and fully hack Wii U before NX release?
    Do you think I will ever stop making useless posts? Do you think NX will be that awesome?
    Do you think Nx will be a New Wii U like N3ds was for 3ds?

    I have bought my Wii U to play Mario/Donkey Kong Games. Other Games are not important like these, but i have bought ~10 Original Games. If NX will be released before Wii U is completly hacked i think i will buy it too, and if it's wii u compatible i may sell my Wii U. Dunno, but i wouldn't say that hacking the Wii U is useless cause not everybody may want to buy NX. But first of all let's see what NX will be... :)

    Hi there, allow me to introduce you to two people I know; Mrs Patience and Mr Realistic Expectations.

    You should spend time getting to know them.

    It's unfortunate that a console only gets hacked to it's full potential on the end of it's life cycle when another console is already released... And then everyone forgets about it. It's like when I asked if USB HIDs on Wii homebrew emulators were a possibilty, I was ignored and everyone told me to do something else because the Wii was dead. I feel like this will happen all over again with the Wii U. Hacking is beggining just now, and when it's good enough, people will move on to the obviously much harder to hack NX.

    who knows maybe the NX will be an open platform :creep:

    but seriously people move with the times, sure some things get left on the roadside as they loose popularity,but i would prefer dev's tackling the new systems rather than still sitting there now trying to achieve everything imaginable on the atari 2600

    its not like the wii has any shortage of appropriate controller solutions for each console

    Yeah, but I don't get it. USB just sounds so obvious. It doesn't make any sense not to integrate something like that.

    Hey, this is something that should stay alive for all platforms :angry:
    Latest VCS demos are impressive.

    One question: Is Wii (yes, the original) hacking useless now?

    It should get way more love. The Wii still has some hidden potential... I just wish I could code instead of just complaining about it on forums... I should start a blog.

    Oh, I do know that, sorry. It was a rhetorical question. It's not useless now, and I'm pretty sure that in the future we'll be able to make good use of whatever hackers will be able to do with the Wii U now.

    tbh the wii got a lot of love in its prime, and still draws some attention thanks to vwii mode on the wiiu and the fact you could probably find a wii just walking down the street lol, but considering the specs of the system i think it did alright

    If there were more people interested in this console being hacked to its fullest, it would have been already. For-profit hackers use a technique of judging time vs money by watching the amount of pre-orders to decide whether or not to continue. With the wii u being on the smallest end of purchases and not having a large lineup of games made it really isn't worth their time to seek the means.
    That leaves non-profit hackers. Non-profit hackers are low budget and work with limited time and resources. Typically with non-profit hackers it's a one and done situation and teams that exploit one console aren't usually the ones exploiting the next one. (Thus the next guy gets guidance from previous but the rest they learn on their own) New teams usually means becoming a self taught developer. (So it takes time)
    Add that to the fact that this particular console does not have many games to offer so now you have a limited (in numbers) team.
    Honestly, these guys have done an extraordinary job in achieving console freedom thus far. I honestly didn't think they would get past 5.3.2 let alone come up with a workaround updating all together. Once they break a barrier they seem to begin exploitation rather quickly. I am actually amazed with the current team/s.

    NX released next year? Really? We don't even know anything about it.
    Unless Smash Bros 4 or a new Zelda gets released for NX I may not even get one.

    And seeing as hacking becomes possible, the lifetime of Smash Bros 4 will get longer and thereby so will the console.

    1.) Tacos
    2.) No, but it will be like 3ds
    3.) Never!
    4.) Yes, think PS4/Vita but done right and fully integrated
    5.) No but I think it will be cross platform and NX will be integrated into Wii U as extension.

    It is confirmed that NX specs will be revealed in early 2016 and the console itselft shall be released in late 2016 :)
