    The Wii U is the great console of all time. The Wii U has backwards compatibility, free online, great 1st party lineup, unique features, play used games, off tv play.

    can play: Wii U(of course), Wii, GameCube, N64, SNES, NES, GBA, DS, even "some switch" games. and many more.

    And all this un-hacked. once hacked. lord help us all.

    I'd agree if the disc drive hadn't decided to sulk so bad about not getting discs that it stopped working and now I have a massive paperweight

    As the great @Tom Bombadildo said once.

    "Lucky Flame, he gets to play all the upcoming first party Switch games early!"

    Good point! why isnt they a good Xbox one, Xbox 360 and Xbox OG emu's? hackers now people don't care about them so they don't code an emu for them.

    I really like my WiiU.
    cemu only if you have a powerful enough PC. Not everyone has a powerful enough one. Did you know the WiiU runs WiiU games almost like they were made for it? I wonder why. Also perfect retro-compatibility with every previous nintendo console except 3ds, but if you really want one you can get a 2DS at less than 80 bucks, and virtual boy, as far as i know. With emulators on a hacked one it brings along even more options for other consoles.

    not an option unfortunately, there's no official nintendo support where I live and a replacement hard drive would have to be imported and would be ungodly expensive because of some customs bullshit. I tried the logic board trick which didn't work, s I just sort of gave up. maybe I'll prod around in the vacation.


    sigh. Both my phat CFW PS3 AND my Wii U died in the same month this year and I have a REALLLY strong irrational hate towards consoles now

    Nah, Honor 6x and Huawei mate 10 lite. Then, however, i resorted to use my dad's old iphone 6, since it works and i'm not risking another good phone with my butter fingers.

    Afaik it cannot play GC unless unblocked with HB channel and nintendont. But once done, it is really awesome.

    I reserve some honor to the overlooked Wii, which does all of that minus the WiiU.

    But with AV cable connection to the TV that sucks. Also, no DS VC.

    Considering theres literally no downsides to cfw on the Wii u, the GC compatibility is a non issue imo

    You can buy a very cheap HDMI adapter, which is not the case with GC (big bucks).
    Still 480p though.

    I just realized that when one day in some years the wiiu eshop will inevitably close people won't be able to install haxchi or chbc anymore.
