    As if. Piracy will "accelerate", as in, it will be enabled. So far nobody has expressed any interest in homebrew development for the system and it's been 2 years now, I think it's fair to assume that we're not going to see anything interesting on that front anytime soon.

    Maybe there's no homebrew 'cause nobody is buying the Wii U.
    With Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros +1game I think I see people buying the Wii U.

    Yeah... I've heard the same jingle before, I'm afraid. One or two games aren't going to save the system - it needs widespread support. That being said, at least it's getting Nintendo content, that's always a selling point.

    People are pre-ordering this for "homebrew".. yeah right. lol

    When PSP got hacked what was the "homebrew" for? Playing backups.
    When 360/PS3 got hacked what was the "homebrew" for? Playing backups.

    If you're going to be playing pirated copies at least have the decency to be honest about it.

    To be fair, both the PSP and the PS3 have a pretty rich homebrew collection - I used a lot of media players on my PSP back in the day, that and the enhanced web browser, a WiFi sniffer and a few other things. Can't say much for the 360 as I don't have one.

    The cops aren't going to arrest for admitting it, you know.

    I download episodes of US series weekly that I watch. There.

    I have a PSP hacked with 5.50 CFW-something and a ton of plugins activated, one tells how much battery it has as well as the date, and bunch of others but in reality the majority just hacked their PSPs back then to play pirated ISOs/CSOs.
