A Guide to the Wii U Hack - Is It Really Curtains for Nintendo?

From GamesReviews:

"The news that the Wii U has been hacked came out earlier this week, and there seems to have been confirmation of it. Things seem to have gone from bad to worse with Nintendo, with low sales, a lack of software and now piracy stopping their latest console from growing. That's what the detractors are saying, anyway. The reality is completely different."

Is this the END of Nintendo? Does this means no more Mario? No more Zelda? No more Metroid? No more Star Fox? No more Pokemon?

dont worry, we'll be left with uncharted 4,5,6,7,8 and halo 12.

Nah Naughty Dog already moved on to a new IP (The Last of US) Which i cant say the same for Nintendo.

BTW did you know that with each generation naughty dog has created a new IP?

1. PSX: Crash Bandicoot
2. PS2: Jak and Daxter
3. PS3: Uncharted, The Last of Us.

But i do agree with you on Halo though and the same thing can be said about multiple Zelda, Mario and Metroid games.

did you know that for all nintendo's over reliance on mario, the last proper 3d mario on console, Super Mario Galaxy 2, is regularly voted the greatest game ever made? And while reviews are obviously subjective opinion, it seems that nintendo innovate as much as they re-use their mascot. Put simply, 25yrs of dump and the public would not put up with countless mario games. (ask sonic).

Oh yeah, because Nintendo hasn't milked a franchise/character.

Not every year.
And if they do, it's completely different.

For the average gamer, this hack means nothing. I don't hack, don't use exploits and it doesn't affect me in the slightest.

Well for the average gamer the WiiU in general means nothing atm anyway so ergo the hack means nothing too. But hacks do have implications and it would only be magnified on a small install base such as software sales.

The biggest problem with piracy is software sales, which might cause 3rd party devs to think twice about releasing their games on wiiu, but since that is alreay happening... Its not much of an issue.

On the other hand piracy ends up being a really good hardware boost.

Then again, 360 was hacked really fast and didnt had any lack of support from devs
