    Has anyone else had problems with people hacking Wii online? And, more importantly, does Nintendo have a system like Xbox live where you can report and avoid certain players? My guess is a no... but these hackers really piss me off.

    None that I'm aware of. Of course, I never played the Wii online, so I wouldn't know.

    There was a story about a guy who found hacks/exploits easily in that Sega shooter that came out recently. He didn't release them publicly, instead he chose to work with the devs to help fix and identify people using them. I believe people can get banned from certain games but there is no reporting ability that I'm aware of. Its up to the individual devs to police thier games.

    Check the Mariokart channel once and take a look at the leaders of the tournaments.

    Hacking at it's finest/most obvious.

    it's like this if the item is a computer in any form there's always a hacker for it if there's a will there's a way, not to condone such acts cause there rude,annoying and completely detracts from the game experience just stating theres always going to be a hacker(s) making everyone's playtime a pain.
