    Cubic Ninja didn't get sold out because people wanted to play it.

    The game is like Sonic Lost World's 3DS version made even worse, i.e, the gameplay's entirely surrounded around motion control which is a nightmare for portable gaming.

    Regardless of how cheap it may be I'm not one to go for it, even if Amazon UK had a restock too. The prices have dropped from £60 to £34 so that didn't last long like predicted.

    The prices were sky high once the exploit game was announced, but the prices really dipped when people found out they couldn't get free games lol.

    Wonder where Amazon found an unsold batch of Cubic Ninja copies...
    Doubt its a newly made set.

    It would make sense if it was. Amazon recalled their copies after Nintendo asked them to.

    It could be that that Nintendo gave the go-ahead to sell them again after 9.3/9.4 patches, or it could be patched reprints.

    Hmmm. Could it be someone who had some inside information?

    Why should they do what Nintendo says? They'd make more money and it would help their customers if they sold those copies anyway.

    To stay on good terms to get future licensing deals or continue current ones?

    Exactly. Even certain "unofficial accessories" such as Action Replays are also technically banned:
    lol Sega boot disks.

    Nintendo doesn't patch the game, they patch the vulnerability in the next firmware release...... They could manufacture new copies requiring a higher firmware above that to which NinjHax supports.

    That's the joke; I'm just pointing out that Jao Chu's signature is out of date. Soon it will be even more out of date.

    This belongs over in Homebrew Dev and Emulators now. Requesting a mod move it across there.

    Stop shitting up our piracy forum with your posts about homebrew!*

    His sig maker is on vacation.

    There's nothing wrong with motion controls on a portable game, unless you're playing in a car or bus and they can't be disabled. And even then, some types of motion controls are still alright for those occasions. Sonic Lost World's special stages were annoying at first but after a while you got the hang of them and they became fun. Cubic Ninja sucked because its gameplay was boring and slow.

    the worst 29 bucks you will ever spend, but I guess the exploit worth it. I will just stick to gateway though. :)))
