    I had an idea. Maby Nintendo will start making special 3DS games that only work with a firmware update! This firmware update, also disables flashcarts! Those pirates will be screwed. I wish it would happen but if it did, then they would just make new flashcarts anyway. But it's a cool idea anyway, so tell me what you think in the comments.

    but if you pirate all your games then you haven't updated in the first place... thus no security...

    lol. These threads.

    Unless you mean auto-updating games, it's how it is already.
    If you do mean auto-updating games, then that doesn't change a thing.
    It wouldn't make the game special to do either.

    I want to clarify this in light of the recent thread:
    By auto-updating I mean
    *boot, check internet for latest firmware version, check system firmware version. if 1>2 - update # else - play.
    I don't mean it would update your 3DS without you clicking "accept" at some point, and being given a choice to update.

    It could be like what the PSP did, but people found a way around that rather easily.

    Don't they already try to do that with the wii? Problem is, once a console is hacked, you can pretty much do anything, including bypassing all checks and blocks.

    That's what pretty much every system except the DS/i already does.

    The DS/i is the only one that doesn't do it (and people are surprised when we tell them that games won't make them update).

    Agreed xD really.
    -

    A 3DS system menu need to be online. What if they release a faulty/glitchy system menu and put them on the latest game? Caos, hacks and stuff. And they, Nintendo, can silently cover holes in their system. Guess they´ve learned the lesson with sudokuhax. The best bet they can do is to ship irresistible content inside a firmware update (through internet), so they can be sure you´ll update anyways, or either replace any buggy app with a patched/improved version of it.
