Any point to keeping a retail cart of Cubic Ninja?

    Awhile back I picked up a retail Cubic Ninja for $5 at GS before news leaked out.
    I wanted to know, is it still useful for exploit purposes or just sell it for whatever I can get?

    Thanks

    Still useful for homebrew, but if you want to do more than that its not useful

    No one in their right mind would want to do that

    I tried... Holy wow the game just feels so bad to play. It's like if Super Monkey Ball was made by Ubisoft-
    wait that's exactly what it is

    DS flashcarts will soon be the Holy Grail of entrypoints (arm9 == all access).

    The problem, of course, is not all flashcarts will be compatible with ntrboothax, and they're mostly illegal in western countries.
    That means CN should still hold some value for a good while. Certainly as soundhax fades into distant memory and primaries stop popping up after talented devs move on to the switch.

    What FW Version are you on;
    And it may be possible to use that entry point to access Homebrew, and as an exploit to get CFW (if you never did earlier).

    Another game in the collection. I'm keeping my copy because why not. Also I did play it, it's actually not that bad.

    You can use it as a dust cover for your 3DS's game slot

    I have a OG 3DSXL with that latest emu firmware that 3DS Gateway supports. So unless I get a New 3DS, I think Cubic Ninja is not worth keeping.

    Theres ctr-httpwn but i'm sure you have heard of that since your on emu nand.

    Other than that no, unless someone else for whatever reason needs to borrow it :P.

    It might also be good if you plan on updating your cfw or need to acsess homebrew.

    It sounds like there is a free primary coming.

    I really don't see the point, smealum's obsession with continuing to support it aside.

    I just wanted to play the damn game and didn't rush to get it since it was dirt-cheap, then it got announced as an entry point for homebrew and I tried to get one so I could play the game but was too late.

    I should have just bought it when I had the chance. Oh well. And it seems that it's not even a great game after all. Bleh.

    I'd keep Cubic Ninja because I'm a bit sentimental and it's the daddy of this whole scene - and perhaps similarly to some I don't need to keep OOT or Freaky Forms Deluxe (x 2) but I cant seem to part with them either. On my userland unit I still use Ironhax over Soundhax and use Menuhax to install themes.

    I thinks exploit games might lend themselves more to digital hoarding because they have added utility. Fair play to anyone who can cut the irrational attachment and pass on what they don't need. I'll get there at some point, I hope.

    Probably not, but I'm keeping mine, it's like the swiss army knife of homebrew entrypoints, works on pretty much any firmware, and the only way to launch .3dsx homebrew on firmwares below 9.0.
