    What do you mean buy "it are my game"? Try to put your fingernail above the sticker and pull it out.

    man...as soon as a "mario party 3D" game is in my posession, i will find myself disassembling my 3DS the whole time as well as spending tons of money for new analog-sticks...

    Thats cool, taking stuff apart is fun. I just never get to putting it back together and by the time I want to I have already lost that dumb nintendo screwdriver. Anyways try switching the screens around have the 3D one on bottom and the touch on top it would make Kid Icarus a 100 times easier.

    I remember seeing that post before the 3DS was out and being so upset lmao.

    Japan had the 3DS already, and seeing opened ones wanted to make me cry hahaha.

    If we've had ripped-open 3DSes hit the net already, why are we still in the dark about the actual hardware? I mean, people are STILL arguing about whether the dual core processors are 256mhz or 800mhz. Wouldn't examining the actual physical contents (from a skilled individual who knows what they're doing, of course) give us a for-sure idea of the 3DS hardware capabilities?

    Because like on DS hardware, all components (DSP,GPU,CPU) are packaged into one-solution chip to prevent piracy/reduce costs

    Interesting... clever move. But from Nintendo's end, wouldn't that make it more expensive to repair if someone sent a defective one in? Since they'd either have to dig inside to fix the components, or replace the one-solution chip entirely?

    Thats the beauty of it, because they only have one chip for it, all they have to do is pop it out and pop another back in, meanwhile hackers cant get into the CPU because of it.
