How can you pirate a console which has no games?

I'm all for homebrew and other "legitimate" reasons for hacking, but ouch, I really hope Nintendo can come up with a solution if this is true. The Wii U definitely doesn't need this right now.

By the way Bluexy, you thanked Duncan_Idaho twice.

I guess they couldn't wait until May 15 to play Super Metroid on the gamepad. :/
Hmm, wonder if we can get a DS emulator...

This isn't a homebrew hack. All this does is lets you play games on a disc and probably soon lets you watch DvDs or something.
Just thought I'd clear this up

Now is the time to order a system. This is exactly what Nintendo needs right now. The system is dying anyway, might as well make their money back on all the hardware they will sell this week.

Ok i had a comment before but i am getting an error that it's spam content?

impressive i built an argument and it's spam, neo has been taken over by SHODAN it seems.

Anyway intrested on what homebrew devs will be doing now with this lil guy.

Nothing.... This isn't an OS hack. It's only a drive emulator

Anyway this is not too horrible, there are no iso dumps for wii u, for the wiikey to work you would need a dump and a manager, and only certain and as of yet uknown dvd readers can process wii u games.

Ok, allow me to clear things up a bit. I meant that while I support homebrew, fan patches, and other positive but still very grounded in the grey area side of hacking, this will be very bad for Nintendo if word of mouth gets really out of hand.

Looks like I'm running into the same problem as Duncan Idaho, but nothing in my posts have been spam worthy. It seems to only be poping up when I try to notif somebody in some way since removing quotes and the like seems to fix it, anyone else having the same problem?

Zombie Barioth this is already out of hand, but piracy wont roll in for years, first some lucky bastard needs to find a reader unit that displays Wii U games, then they can go and rip them, on the other hand nintendo could potentially remove all disc based selling and just go for full Online, then we need to check if wiikey chip can actually read the isos, since we do not know if they are even encrypted or what kind of protection it runs on.

Yeah it's a bug, you cant notif or quote people.
