What is so nice about Wii Unlocker is that you do not need to modify your Wii's hardware. With Wii Unlocker, you don't risk damaging your Wii, everything is reversible, and you keep your warranty valid.
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. I then heard about Wii Unlocker from my colleague who got it for her boyfriend. When I got back home I immediately opened Google and searched how to unlock my Wii. I wanted to get him an original Super Nintendo as a gift but I was having a hard time finding one in decent shape, let alone finding the games he liked to play.Of course, that depends entirely on the method used to bypass the system’s security measures. 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.
