    Or do you think it will be able to in the future?
    I'd love to be able to use those $30 I got from SMT:IV without updating.

    No, you won't be able to use the money, not now nor in future.
    Only if u update u can use the money, but then you lose the way to play pirated games on ur 3DS.

    :rolleyes:

    Serious talk though, as it stands today, you need two 3DS's to comfortably play backups and play online, sorry.

    Which is what I did. It was expensive but definitely worth it.

    Spotpass works, but playing multiplayer online (ie, Mario Kart 7) does not.

    no...this is only to bypass bundled Gateway killing updates on the ROMS
