    If you plan to hack your 3DS, do you think having it linked to Club Nintendo is a bad thing? I think it is.

    I doubt it'd be a problem.

    They're not going to hunt you down and sue you for being a buccaneer. Worst they'll do is an online ban, and they can do that without a Club Nintendo link.

    I'll never "hack" my Nintendo 3DS XL.
    I only use my R4i Gold for NDS-Games (and GB+GBC+NES), but I don't want to buy something like Gateway.
    I'll support Nintendo by buying good games.

    If they banned you from Club Nintendo, wouldn't that encourage you to pirate more games?

    NDS Games are dumped from my retail-cartridges.
    How should I support Nintendo by buying GB,GBC and GBA Games? They won't sell them anymore. I can only buy this games on ebay or other e-Shops.
    Nintendo won`t see a cent, if I buy a game from ebay ;)

    If games retain their value in the second hand market, people are more likely to buy games, thus more sales, thus more money for Nintendo.
    Having been around a while, if I know a game will retain its value into the future, I am far more likely to buy it.

    Thus, you may not think it directly affects Nintendo, but if older games remain valuable, people are happier to buy new games (knowing they won't be worth nothing in the future).

    Yes, always connect your Nintendo gaming device so you can earn rewards from your favoritest company. :D (I didn't feel like typing out most favorite; sounds boring)
    See, it's like this: I love Nintendo so much that I'm willing to do whatever I have to to play their games.

    Why is it dumb and wrong? Do you have money to throw away?
    BTW, I have sold second hand games for $300+, and many for $100+.

    If you are happy to spend money on something that will loose the bulk of its value, feel free to do so.
    I think differently. I think it is dumb to throw away money needlessly.

    how does buying games from the nintendo eshop not give them any money, and even if they dont offer it, it doesnt give you a golden ticket to steal their products.
    ur fooling urself. even if they never rerelease there games, if enough people wanted them to, they would be more inclined to if people didnt just pirate them. since people do just pirate their old games (thinking its alright, like you) fewer games get digital releases, fewer games get sold (digitally), therefore your not supporting nintendo.
    be like the rest of us, not self righteous pirates, but just pirates
    i pirate cause its cheaper (maybe cause i hate nintendo a lil bit :P ) not because i tricked myself into thinking im doing gods work.

    I'm not talked about the Nintendo e-Shop^^ I talkes about e-shops like ebay, amazon etc.
    Sure, that don't give me a "golden ticket" to "steal" their products.
    But you can't buy games like "Dragon Warrior Monsters I & II", "Donkey Kong Land I -III" and many more games on the nintendo e-shop.
    I don't want to get this games from a person on ebay, because it's very expensive. If I could get this games on nintendo E-shop, I'll buy it. Because it's from nintendo.


    (sry, my english isn`t very good ^^`)

    and like i said, nintendo doesnt bother offering their older games on their eshop because people just steal them. why bother dealing with all the license BS when only 10 people will buy it cause everyone else just downloaded it 10 years ago. if nintendo saw a demand, or just werent having their old games downloaded illegally, theyd probably would add more games on there eshop. since you not only dont buy games preowned (from e-bay or where ever) but also just download them at a whim, there is no demand, nintendo doesnt rerelease there titles, nintendo isnt being supported.
    i dont give 3 s****s about nintendo and their bottomline, nor piracy, but u thinking ur not doing nintendo a disservice is simply wrong. the fact everyone already has a pirated digital version of any given game, destroys any reason nintendo would rerelease it officially.
    (and your english is fine, not perfect, but whose is?)
