Nintendo's secret message in the code of NES Mini got discovered.
Neat! Glad this got discovered.
I dont have much to say except thats pretty cool.
Take that hackers!
Take what? You do know it has already been hacked and hackers managed to add games to the system.
I just find it funny that they embedded this message already knowing people were going to break into this. I'm sure whatever the security that was put in place, if any, was going to be cut through like a knife to hot butter.
My original comment was meant to be sarcastic bc the message or lines of code didn't stop anybody from doing anything...
Pretty cool but it may have been a goof for other in house devs
Makes me wonder why if Nintendo knew it was going to be hacked, why not make the system in such a way they could actually offer up more games for it so they could make more money on it.
Nintendo kind of missed an oppurtunity with this system. i'm sure there are plenty of people who would have payed for the ability to add more games. Now the only people that can do that are those that hack the system and add their own roms.
Sounds like they knew it would be hacked. But didn't mind. Pretty cool.
Neat! That's an obscure reference to Nintendo's roots! I actually made the pilgrimage to their original headquarters when I was in Japan.
