    Or should I say, another DSi update that adds nothing?...

    Lol we're gonna block your weak flashcards again fail at this miserably, and generally add nothing of any value whatsoever!

    Fixed.

    I don't have a DSi myself, but it seems like another dick move by Nintendo to release an update for anything that does nothing....oh wait!

    Pity those that have flashcarts that no longer work on the new update.

    It's a good plan (blocking cards with updates and whatnot), but it has one fatal flaw, I can still use wi-fi in games without updating, not too much incentive to update. [​IMG]
     
  8. If you were Nintendo, you wouldn't say the same thing.
    If they didn't update their systems to block flashcards, then everyone could just use their flashcart.
    By continuously blocking headers, it will narrow down the list of possible useable headers for flashcart's exploits.
    Over time, they will all be used up and we will have to find a new way to get the flashcarts to load.

    Seems like a pretty good move to me. Don't really see how it's a dick move.

    You're probably only looking part of each perspective.

    I'm not saying that the "Flashcard Blocking" part was a dick move.

    It's a dick move because they claim it adds "behind-the-scenes improvements to system performance." when clearly it probably doesn't.

    I don't think that's so much a "dick move" as "a lie that no one really believes in the first place".

    Am I the only one who thought that they would stop giving a fuck bout the DSi once the 3DS came out?

    Maybe with the lite being phased out, they're focusing all their attention on the DSi.

    It still makes money so they definitely still care about it.

    Probably not.

    I certainly stopped giving even half that when I found out the DSi would lack the GBA Port. Not gonna give up my ****ing Boktai, hellz no!

    I'm not even sure why they release updates either, the DSi+XL will die off as well just like the DS..Lite (Oh god I'm gonna cry again.. [​IMG] ) did when the 3DS came out, when the 3DS drops in price to a reasonable amount.

    Oh and I bet an awesome cookie that the supercard team releases an update to work with the new firmware by toomorow.

    So... that means it DOES do something, right? It blocks the flashcarts [​IMG]



    I haven't updated past 1.4.1, if I remember correctly, but it's good to be updated so I know not to update any time soon.

    So has Nintendo ever came out with a reason as to WHY we should update? I mean, they don't bait us at all. They don't go "well you know, if you update your DSi, we'll give you this free app" or anything like that.

    Cave Story is reason enough.

    Either way, if it works I say they go for it.

    Still does something.

    They aren't forcing anyone to update, so you don't have to if you don't want to.
    If you choose to, that's on you.
