With every generation of console hardware inevitably people try and usually succeed at cracking the security, producing a modchip or workaround, and allowing games to be played using alternative or unofficial media.In the case of the Nintendo Wii, a modchip was created called the Wiikey that acted as an optical drive emulator and allowed games to be played from any USB media. The installation of the chip involved dismantling your Wii, but afterwards it could receive firmware updates via a DVD and worked with pretty much all generations of the hardware.Now the same group that developed the Wiikey is claiming to have cracked the Wii U, and will be introducing a new optical drive emulator called the WiikeyU or WiikeU. However, there’s no evidence of their crack yet, just a claim on the official Wiikey site that the team has “completely reversed the Wii U drive authentification, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed.” If that’s true, we can expect the new modchip to appear very soon.Nintendo doesn’t believe them, though. They have seen no evidence that the Wii U has had its systems cracked and no reports of unauthorized games being played. Even if the claim turns out to be true, Nintendo has the ability to update the Wii U’s firmware quickly and block the use of a mod chip. Of course, that depends entirely on the method used to bypass the system’s security measures. Is it easy to close that security hole?If the Wii U has been compromised this early in its lifecycle then that’s a bit embarrassing for Nintendo. Depending on how quickly they can fix the problem it could impact the console and games releases negatively–not because people will stop buying games, but because publishers and developers may ignore the platform thinking it is a new hive of piracy.
