Nintendo Files Lawsuit Against HackYourConsole.com

on August 7, 2013 3:20 PM

According to a recent press release from Nintendo of America Inc., they have recently filed a lawsuit against the website HackYourConsole.com for selling illegal Nintendo games, as well as devices and services that circumvent security in the Nintendo DS and Wii systems. HackYourConsole.com also claimed to be an authorized distributor of the yet to be released 3DS Gateway card.

This recent lawsuit is the result of Nintendo’s ongoing fight against global piracy, which financially undermines the efforts of thousands of developers when profits are lost to illegally obtained games.
