Nintendo hid secret message for hackers within NES Mini • Eurogamer.net

"Yesterday, we heard hackers had managed to expand the 30 game library of Nintendo's NES Mini.", "But it seems Nintendo may have been expecting enterprising fans to take a crack at the microconsole's security - a secret message has been found within the system's code."

'The message was written by an unnamed programmer under the alias of "The Hanafuda Captain" - a reference to the Japanese hanafuda playing cards which Nintendo once sold before breaking into the video game business. '

'Here it is in full:The code was posted online by Twitter user bakueikozo (thanks, Kotaku):Hackers have now been able to load their own digital images of NES games onto the NES Mini by breaking into its programming and uploading/downloading new data to a PC via USB. The device actually has a hard limit of 60 game slots, double what the NES Mini launches with. ', "It's not an easy method, however, and it risks bricking your NES Mini in the process."

This has been an automated message.

The actual message......

“This is the hanafuda captain speaking. Launching emulation in 3..2..1. Many efforts, tears and countless hours have been put into this jewel. So, please keep this place tidied up and don’t break everything!

“Cheers, the hanafuda captain.”

If the machine can hold 60 games, but only comes with 30. Was Nintendo holding out on how many games they give out with the NES classic or predicting people would add their own to the system to customize the selection.

The flash storage was probably cheaper. Once you get down to a certain capacity, there's no price decreases in the hardware itself, it sometimes even becomes more expensive as there's less stock available.

I bet they're probably looking to release the NES Mini +

Either way, a Raspberry Pi can play all the games.

Love using my Raspberry Pi zero for this use and streaming videos. But I wouldn't doubt Nintendo releasing a "NES Mini +" as you put it, its a business like anything else, gotta make money somehow.

It's pretty cool they did that. I just hope they don't flag people streaming from the system

You really shouldn't financially support SJW bullshit by directly linking to Cuckgamer.net. Archive.is is your friend!
