How is that another hit for Nintendo? Nintendo has been flying high since e3, and I doubt this will stop them. A quick patch and it's over with.

Flying high? Isn't that exaggerating a bit?

nidhogg727d ago

He's just quoting James Blunt.

Well considering they just released MK8 which is one of the best sellers out at the moment, and Tomadachi(sp?) life for the 3DS and Smash right around the corner. Add to those a ton of other content, and year I'd say they are flying high.. compared to how they had been pre-e3.

Can you chat in Mario Kart 8 with friends yet?(don't care about strangers)
I'm thinking of picking it up soon.

Shnazzyone726d ago

@shinmaster Yes you have been from the start but only in a friend room lobby so the answer is actually. Yes... kinda.

Doesn't hack increase hardware sales? Remember people owning two ps3 because of it being hacked? This happened with wii also. That home brew was pretty impressive.

SilentNegotiator726d ago

It's an exploit, not a custom OS.

SilentNegotiator726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

OMG two hackers?! Another MAJOR BLOW!!

Still they struggled a lot since the Wii U release. They are getting back from that but it would be the first next generation console hacked.

randomass171727d ago

Hackers are everywhere online but they are generally unavoidable and their antics can get patched especially on consoles.

Canadiangamer.....

Dude, your article is idiotic, Nintendo can just release a patch.

"Still they struggled a lot since the Wii U release. They are getting back from that but it would be the first next generation console hacked."

Microsoft and Sony are struggling as well. How is the Vita doing? And the Xbox One is getting outsold by the Wii U worldwide.

Nintendo has the 3DS, that is selling really well right now.

Don't have a double standard. Nintendo is struggling, yet Sony and MS is fine?

Now you're writing a whole article based on a hacker? LOL this is flamebait, you know that.

Shnazzyone726d ago

Uh, just so everyone understands. These two are fiddling with things and likely will never be able to take any of these things online. This is just them fiddling in the code.

The world doesn't care about Canada

ReesesPuffs726d ago

Any self respecting human in this world doesn't care about gay shit like Naruto, bud.

The hackers you mention are not even publishing their stuff anytime soon. Even if they release the hacks, Nintendo should be able to patch the game.

If the Wii U is still struggling commercially, that's another story, but the point of your piece is that the hacks will affect Nintendo, and it's not entirely the case.

deafdani727d ago

As far as I understand it, this isn't actually a console hack, more lika a game exploit. A hack, if you will, for a single Wii U game.

In the long run, this could mean anything, or nothing. To jump to conclussions so soon is premature from your part, and your article definitely has too much of a "doom & gloom" tone to it, so don't act surprised if people disregard it as flamebait.

You have got to be kidding me!

LOL_WUT727d ago

This doesn't sound good hopefully Nintendo patches the game to remove this exploit. ;)

DanielGearSolid727d ago

If anything it'll boost sales until it gets patched.

I remember buying a 2nd psp just for cfw.
But I'm just one case
