    [*]Many larger stores don't even check to see if the system boots before trade-in. Like hell will they do anything special to check hidden logs. In addition the logs could take up a lot of space, and Nintendo like to keep their systems cheap.

    [*]Total bullshit, will not happen, end of story. Nintendo has no legal right to do that and would get sued out the ass.

    [*]The third rumor is the only one with any credibility.

    If this is true, why haven't we seen it with people using DS flashcarts? Even when they were blocked no one reported anything like this.

    There is already one reason why I doubt this and it is that it kills your system? People can't buy
    future games on it and they wouldn't want to spent another $250.


    Edit: Doesn't even sound like Nintendo.

    I agree with you, Rydian. But again, I'd like to see how it unfolds.

    Doubt it really Nintendo would just update firmware to block pirates not go to this extent.

    The log would simply display the icon/name of whatever game's header appears when you put your flashcart into the 3DS. Fish master, Danny Phantom, Juju whatever.... whatever.

    You can also delete games from your log.

    Most likely BS, but I can wait a couple of months just to be certain.

    A pirate knows that the first two rumors are BS, but most of the people at gonintendo don't see why Nintendo can't do this, funny.
    Rumor #3, well this is something Nintendo must do sooner or later.

    A reasonable non-pirate knows that they aren't right.

    Right behind you

    +1. This has got to be one of the lamest things ever passed off as news. There is absolutely no chance Nintendo is going to brick people for using flash carts, imagine the PR nightmare. The worst they'll ever do is ban from online and refuse repair service.

    OK, but still, no one at gonintendo sees why Nintendo can't do this.
    They're all like, take that pirates.
