Earlier today, we showed that someone had accessed the debug menu of the Wii U through Miiverse. This could have been a big problem for Nintendo, as it could have gotten them into big trouble. Thankfully they've already closed up the loophole. All goes back to normal...for now!

Yeah, i was playing zombiU while paying attention to the news. It's safe to say i was pretty scared (about the zombies and Nintendo's future). Glad to see it has been fixed

Yeah, I hope this means the Miiverse will be back up soon.

@LegendofSantiago

So, what do you think of ZombiU so far? I don't have it, and reviews have been all over the place.

@internet This.

The US is just beta testing this for us [and for Japan] - the only good thing about being further along the release schedule. :)

I wouldn't expect there to be too much done in the next 2 weeks before UK launch - it'll be essential updates like this one only I'd imagine.

It'll take them longer to do major updates based on user feedback and things like menu optimisation.
PM me and I'll add you to my 3DS - feel free to add my NNID for WiiU too!

I played ZombiU for a couple of hours. My god its so awesome! The combination of gamepad and the tv really gives you a sense of danger. It is definitely a great new experience in fps horror games. I kinda wish the was a strategy guide.

Not exact quote but is: "So many Miis entered into Miiverse that we had to shut it down" :lol:

@Chosenoneknuckles
Uuh no we paid for our systems to work properly I love how the jealous people try to say things like this to make themselves feel better. Who knows what kinda stuff will hapen when U.K and Japan launch.

So did those who brought the 360 in its first few years [which the definitely bad, sluggish Miiverse doesn't hold a candle too even still] :wink:
