Nintendo of America have filed a lawsuit against the owner of HackYourConsole.com, a site which promotes and helps consumers hack their Nintendo devices and consoles to play illegally downloaded games.
HackYourConsole.com offers services, for a fee, that include ways to hack and modify the Wii and Wii U to allow illegal software to be played on them as well as selling the “R4” Game Copier device that lets users play a multitude of DS and 3DS games the same way.
Piracy is a huge problem in the game industry and it is great to see Nintendo activity trying to fight against and stop this sort of blatant piracy. Nintendo have a very clear stance on piracy and it is good to see them sticking to their guns. Any help we can give them should be done asap!
What do you think about this? Will this help stop some piracy? Or is it useless?
