Real Wii Homebrew with Full Hacked Hardware in the near Future?

Ski Freak wrote in to tell Nintendo-Scene of an interesting presentation that took place at the 24th Annual Chaos Communication Congress (24C3) right now; it would appear that a fully hacked Wii capable of running native homebrew with full hardware access has been presented.

From the report: "The guys over at 24C3 just demoed a Wii hack that is set to provide native wii homebrew in the near future (not running in GC mode, and with full access to all the Wii hardware!)

They were able to find encryption and decryption keys by doing full memory dumps at runtime over a custom serial interface. Using these keys, they were able to create a Wii 'game' that ran their own code (their demo happened to show live sensor/Wiimote information, amongst a few other things)."

Who cares about Wii homebrew when we've got...

Operational Wiimote on much homebrew on the PC
The XBOX 1 with the much advanced homebrew
And the PSP running some nice stuff also?

Even though the Wii sells, afterwards they're catching dust. Wii = meh

but even if we don't care, there is a lot of poeple ,in poor countries, who can manage to buy a games console but can't pay 20 to 30 dollars per game, this might be good news to them, and bad news to nintendo, so we already have homebrew xbox 360 games and xbox 360 pirated games, wii homebrew games on the way and pirated games, because nintendo can't stop these poeple as they can't control the system(lack of firmware upgrades, or so little,anyway the protection is based on the hardware not the softawe as they demonstrated), so now we only have sony's playstation 3 standing in the face of those damn pirates(they are really hurting the buisness, i don't care about a child in africa playing or not) so let's see how sony will stand up to those guys, they have already hacked the ps3's cpu to run homebrew, tried to hack the gpu, but as you know, they already hacked the psp, so all i can see is that the pirating community is unstoppable... shiiiitttt i don't know if this is supposed to make sad or happy..

Because homebrew rulez Mart, you will never know what homebrewers will develop.
But why homebrew on the PSP or Xbox if we can have every piece of software on the PC?
Answer: because it rocks?

homebrewers also doing this to improve their skills and get to know the system.

and whatnot, bottom line it rulez.
