    David over at 3DS Blog has confirmed that the 3DS does not automatically update. You can watch the video in the link, but here's the bottom line: the system connects automatically and notifies you when an update is available. You have to read and accept a user agreement (DUH) before installing it! Basically, all we have to worry about is Nintendo dangling something really good in our faces, or some really good games that will include updates. Not the biggest news ever, but it is good news nonetheless. We no longer have to worry about setting aside our systems and having them lock us out of our precious homebrew.

    its possible the updates will contain something to block emulation.

    edit:and problem is if the updates are really big you cant help it.

    Yes, it does suck that it'll eventually keep us from playing new games, but the point is we have one less thing to worry about when it comes to DS Mode.

    How 'bout you slow down with ds-mode and actually buy some games. [​IMG]

    Figure that I was right about automatic update. [​IMG]

    At the end of the day, they will probably be successful in blocking online play.

    We'll see how it plays out.

    Where are all you *ing *'s who kept saying it's going to update by spotpass and streetpass in 2 seconds of passing a 3ds or wap, and without a word of warning, eh?
    I want to spit on your faces for every time you've made me face *ing palm from reading your bull* on the matter.

    Now that the proof is in a retard-viewable form, you are proven wrong.

    Calm down. It was actually reasonable for people to assume that there would be automatic updates, with the information they had at the time.

    Not really "hotheaded" post iirc, just a tad short.
    You may be confusing *'s for anger, but I assure you I was just going for comedy more than anything else, though the vindication was nice.
