    Title says it all as there since .cias , tickets, the FreShop, FunkyCIA and AngelCIA, etc...
    What are your thoughts?

    What could be your reaction if by X or Y reason you cannot access to the eShop anymore?

    Your question is basically 'Are you a pirate? Y/N'

    That's debatable as sometimes it's useful to cryptofix a 9.6+ game in case it's not working.
    But asides that, yes I never touched it again after my first hack setup and now I use FBI's QR code installation

    I update my games through eShop, and occasionally browse it. I use CHMM2 and I don't have any DLC, so I'm fine.

    I only use it for crypto fixing and updates if I can't find a cia update file. Other than that, I use the freeshop because yes.

    YES IS STILL USEFUL!

    Not all games can be gotten as a pirate, since the only way someone could even pirate a game is if someone first buy the game and then release keys to use in pirate software. (I said pirate a lot but oh well)

    Also if you ACTUALLY SUPPORT DEVS THAT MAKE GAMES YOU LIKE Then is still relevant so yes it is useful and important.:teach:

    No, someone has to buy the games from the eShop to get the keys needed for it to be available in freeShop & CIAngel to download.

    how is eshop useless?
    if you will never buy games, yes ok.
    just like a supermarket could be useless if you only grow your own food.

    but you can pirate AND buy games too... so of course not useless. not every game is dumped...

    no point to make a thread about it, naturally some people will buy games and some people won't.

    Yeah... It's pretty useful if you want to, you know, not pirate everything.

    It's sad that the piracy scene has taken over as much as it has

    I find it very useful. Since you know, I like to buy my games. And I was actually very happy that region-changing on old3DS allows you to keep access to the eshop~

    When you change the region of what your console originally came with. My 25th Anniv. Zelda old3DS is originally a USA SysNAND console. After region-changing it, it is now runs as a European SysNAND console.

    No, I buy stuff that I try out and end up liking, to support the creators.
