I can’t see this sticking for long, they always find away around there unhackable countermeasures.
I mean the Wii now can be updated to it’s newest Firmware update and I can still run Homebrew on it without it getting overwriten.
I’m giving this about a month and a half until they find a way around it.
Hell, Nintendo tried pulling this for a while, But I ran a little application called GeckoOS to bypass the update check protocol.
But if more people stopped using there PS3’s and Wii’s to play pirated games, I don’t see why this would be such a big deal to developers, specially since it allows US, to create custom games and applications, and have the joy of using and sharing them.
