    Infamous hackers WiiKey have announced that they’ve managed to fully hack the Wii U, including drive authentication, disk encryption, and the file system. This kind of hack is extremely detrimental to both Nintendo and the game industry at large, since it is designed to allow pirates to bypass the protection Nintendo has in place in order to play unofficial copies of games found on pirate sites. No homebrew channel and no region unlocking will result from the hack, so if this statement is true, it’s likely Nintendo will be addressing it soon.
    Taken from the WiiKey website:
    Yes, its real – we have now completely reversed the WiiU drive authentication, disk encryption, file system, and everything else needed for this next generation K3y. Stay tuned for updates!
    The WiiKey team were responsible for the first Wii hack released in 2007, so if this rumor turns out to be true, we could see even less third party support for the Wii U unless Nintendo takes action against the hackers quickly.

    The Wii U isn't hacked, the people behind the device have just bypassed the disc drive, the Wii U still remains in its unhacked state.

    no because they have said that they can run unsigned code which means its not just a drive hack
