TOKYO – Nintendo, the Japanese maker of the Wii game console and Super Mario games, says it was targeted in recent online data attacks, but that no personal or company information was lost.
Sony Pr should be taking notes
Yeah, they should take a leaf out of Nintendo's book and tell us nothing was stolen. /s
Meh not much to steal on there basic net I doubt theres many users with credit cards on accounts as there online service sucks so bad.
Sonyslave3 I thought that your face was suppose to turn Purple and not green when your choking on something.
"Nintendo’s U.S. unit was accessed unlawfully a few weeks ago" There isn't much of a difference, they both didn't make a statement straight away even though this was was less serious. This is getting out of hand though.
It is getting way outta control, a government or someone needs to make examples outta a few of these bastards. Start finding these azzholes and handing out 3-5 year jail sentences for cyber terrorism and i guarantee it will come to an end quickly.
sony did say they were breached when they found out unless your saying sony waited 3 weeks and just told us about it
First sony, now nintendo.. wonder who's next... We all know it's gonna happen at some point, more so with the 360 fanboys tweeting at hackers and such claiming xbl is untouchable and telling people to get 360's lol.. P.s im glad it wasn't as serious as the psn breach, we don't need anything like that to happen again no matter what console it happens too
Yes, because NIntendo would actually *panic* people and say that information was stolen. Wow, you're smart. /s
On how to run a useless online function that has no real information to steal to begin with or how to best give your fans the middle finger by going casual?
I guess you missed the part where the article says the attack happened 'a few weeks ago'.
oh hackers......how you can all burn in hell
i agree, this hacking BS is getting ridiculous..... Hey hackers, try getting lives. It'll help you guys to not be so butthurt over corporate decisions. I swear 2011 is turning into the year of the hacker.
I don't know if I'd wish hell on someone for hacking, but they are some serious assholes for all this crap their pulling.
just friend codes... XD
...they were tired of inputing friend codes.
hackers are probably waiting for monday night or tuesday morning early right before nintendos E3 press conference to steal data. If they really want to frustrate nintendo that would do it.
Hackers are not doing this for the consumers as they claim. They are doing this because they believe that they are gods with computers and they get huge kicks from hacking.
Guess it pays to have an outdated online service.
Is it bad to say that I'm kinda relieved that this time it was nintendo and not sony?
So ok there was a breach but it's not important. That makes sense now.
Kind of funny how this came up shortly after this happend. http://n4g.com/news/778201/... I think the info is BS but it could be true.
maybe microsoft is next hope so :-)
