    Hi everyone! I created this new thread to talk about a mysterious new website I've recently found on the Internet. The website's name is Freedl3ds, and here is its URL: http://freedl3ds.com/ But now, I have to make you a question: is freedl3ds an authentic downloading site? Is it just a fraud? Personally, I haven't registered in it, but I think that the fact of promising all downloable content do you want is totally false, bacause I don't really think that the N3DS has been hacked yet.

    And... what do you think?

    If it is too good to be true, it is a fraud.

    So, I whois'd it.

    It seems to belong to one person, so...Administrative contact is a freaking @gmail...

    Even in the low probability that it's legitimate, how could one person by themselves do as much as this website offers? And if they've got employees, even in Finland I'm sure there are too many benefits to incorporation that I wouldn't believe for a second that you wouldn't incorporate your business. Also, unless this person is extremely (extremely) wealthy, they needed investors to back the idea (if it's legitimate) and investors don't tend to invest in One Random Person With a Neat Idea.

    So, yeah. 100% fake.

    Whois is your friend, by the way.

    If you had to come here to verify this is real, perhaps you should have done more searching on the subject...

    We have MANY topics explaining the status of the 3DS being hacked. I believe one is a sticky.

    AAAAAAND this was posted already...

    DAMN the site's so neat and it's been worked on really well.
    But clearly fake garbage.
    Unfortunately I think it's so neat it has the ability to make thousands of people believe it's totally real.

    Looking through the terms and services, it sounds like if they offer anything, it is things that are already freeware. The site itself is definatly a scam, because unless they hacked the 3ds or made a flashcart, there is no way to play downloaded 3ds games on the 3ds. And for the stuff about the movies, how can they have entire movies rendered in 3ds format already on their site?

    This is the FTP-Log. Only images have been uploaded to this site. No Roms, Movies, etc --> Scam.

    I've always wondered what the "Member's Area" of these sites looked like.

    It said it was P2P, so I'm assuming it only has links to dumps on torrents. Probably TPB or some obscure site.


    EDIT: Am I the only one wondering how he did this? <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />
