Man Planning to Sue Nintendo Over Disabled Wii Homebrew Channel

A man named Erik Estavillo downloaded the latest Wii software update which obviously blocked him from accessing the channel. Because of this, he's now wanting to sue Nintendo for blocking him from using it.

He's claiming that he used to it to unlock characters in Mario Kart Wii. But he says some characters can only be unlocked by playing Super Mario Galaxy and believes that "Nintendo is forcing customers to buy another game to unlock one character in a different game." He may be pretty pissed off, but he better have a good lawyer if he even wants to touch Nintendo.

Genius, maybe people should start suing for preorder bonus or dlc bonus. </s>

I'm pretty sure you can unlock Rosalina without Super Mario Galaxy, it's just faster if you do...

"Rosalina - With a Super Mario Galaxy save, win a series of Grand Prix cups/Without Galaxy save, Attain at least 1 Star Rank for all Mirror Grand Prix Cup"

Yeah, good luck Mr. Estavillo

exactly ...he's dumb ... and he is dumber for using homebrew channel for only this ...

Though i'm pretty sure he has no case... remember all those agreements you agreed to when you first started up your wii? Pretty sure you said you would not hack the hardware otherwise risk voided warrenty. On the positive side... how about all those 360 users banned from live?

well it really depends on where he lives he could actually win in some country's because there own warranty laws bypass the manufacturers.

I like how this douche bag goes from suing Sony for banning him from RFOM2 to suing everyone for even more retarded claims.
