Hacker tries to warn Nintendo of security issue

"Bushing" one of the Wii Scenes greatest hackers posted this on his site:

As part of our efforts to understand how the Wii works, we believe we have found a security issue that could allow pirated Wii games to be
played on an unmodified Wii console.

I would like to speak to an engineer about this - please have one contact me...

he's a big supporter of the homebrew scene, but very much against piracy. I think the idea is, if you warns Nintendo, they will corporate more with the homebrew scene instead of shutting them out with the warezers

Having official support for homebrew would be awesome. But Nintendo won't go that route. They'll suck the info out of him, patch the hole, and kill him.

Nintendo doesn't mess around

I don't see Nintendo official supporting homebrew, but they could leave a back door for homebrew to work, and just shut out piracy. Sega never official supported homebrew but its pretty well known behind closed doors a lot of sega guys loved it.

Nintend should allow a "legal" Homebrew community with a set of rules they should follow( like dont make costum firmwares and patches and such).
This will bring new ideas to the table and Nintendo could actually expand their idea's( and so can other developers ).

Lots of Homebrewers are full of talent, its a waste for them to be underground.

does this mean that the wii has the potential to become the next dreamcast. that console is so easy to make games for with no mod needed whatsoever

"does this mean that the wii has the potential to become the next dreamcast. that console is so easy to make games for with no mod needed whatsoever"

With firmware updates, its won't be the same. Maybe more like the psp...
