Nintendo sues console hacking website
SAN FRANCISCO, California (AFP) - Nintendo said on Wednesday that it has filed a lawsuit against a US website with a business model built on hacking into the company's videogame hardware.
Nintendo is suing HackYourConsole.com in federal court in the operation's home state of Florida.
"The site blatantly promotes and sells unauthorised Nintendo games along with devices and services that circumvent the security in the Nintendo DS system and the Wii console," the Japanese videogame giant said in a release.
"The operator of HackYourConsole.com has developed a global business focused on selling unauthorised copies of Nintendo games and game-copying devices used to circumvent the technological protection measures contained in the Nintendo DS family of hand-held systems."
