features a video that describes an effort to
open up access to the Nintendo Wii game platform.
"Wii fans hang on to your hats, as the video above explains, hackers have found a way around the Wii's encryption keys which opens the widely popular console up to home brewed games, open source ports and potentially even a full version of Linux running on your Wii.
The video comes from the 24th Chaos Communication Congress and demonstrates a Wii console running arbitrary code. As Tysoe_J explains in the WiiLi forums, Nintendo wouldnt be able to patch this with a firmware update, since doing so would also break the backwards compatibility with with Game Cube games.
