Wii Shop Channel hacked?

By Spencer . November 30, 2006 . 9:33am

Already? Maybe. This video shows a console hacker downloading F-Zero without points being subtracted off of their account. Since the Wii Shop Channel uses the Opera browser it could be a bunch of fake pages, but F-Zero appears playable at the end. Anything look suspicious in the clip?

Thanks for the tip IceAmp!

    The wii keeps a log of games u have already downloaded so that if u have to delete a game to make space for somthing else, u can redownload it again for free. he probably just deleted the game from the consoles flash drive then downloaded again.

  • I heard about this, and I imagine this is why the new patch makes the DNS hack not work.

    While I do agree with snake’s comment about already downloading the game. I think that it’s strange that it registers his number of points at the bottom of the page as “null”. I’m not a hundred percent sure but there should probably be a number there somewhere even if he did hack the virtual console. Second, I find it strange that there are no extra screens because Nintendo is probably the king of warning screens before something happens. If you look at other videos of people downloading Virtual Console games you will see multiple screens before download. So my guess agrees with snake’s that he just redownloaded.

    He probably has a NES off screen which is connected to the TV whereas the one in the video is a fake. Thus he is able to download the origama for null pwuh.

    Didn’t think the Opera browser was available in the Wii yet. So how could the Virtual console use the opera? All news reports point to Nintendo not releasing it yet and all Updates are for parental control.

    I think this site maybe need to get its facts straight.. Unless it can proove to me that virtual console is using the Opera Browser.
