HackYourConsole goes out of service following Nintendo lawsuit

Posted on August 27, 2013 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Unsurprisingly, HackYourConsole is now out of service. All pre-orders have been cancelled, and the site is no longer accepting new orders.

HackYourConsole has shut down following Nintendo’s lawsuit. It’s the company’s latest attempt to crack down on piracy.

In an announcement made earlier this month, Nintendo said HackYourConsole “blatantly promotes and sells unauthorized Nintendo games along with devices and services that circumvent the security in the Nintendo DS system and the Wii console.” The site offered unauthorized copies of Nintendo titles as well as game-copying devices including the R4 tool “used to circumvent the technological protection measures contained in the Nintendo DS family of hand-held systems.” HackYourConsole additionally intended to distribute the 3DS Gateway cards, which operate in a similar fashion to the R4 device.

    homebrewers complain cuz they like making their own programs that are only playable thru these methods, and companies complain about piracy. what they should do is have something that can play homebrew but lock out retail games, but we all know that wouldnt sell lol
