    According to GoNintendo, "automatic system updates and software downloads through SpotPass will be made available later at the time of the system updates"

    This means if you get a 3DS at launch you won't have to update. Perfect

    It seems pretty much all the features will be available "made available later"
    I think i made a good decision of waiting.

    Eh, still getting it on launch. That way I figure if an exploit is discovered, I have a very easy way to obtain it. And hopefully it doesn't involve a downloadable game [​IMG]

    I hope that feature does end up being added on the launch instead of waiting.
    I really don't want to see the 3DS hacked

    honestly, i kind of hope the 3ds remains unhacked for a while as well...maybe then developers will actually make some quality games for the system instead of the hundreds of shovelware titles we've seen on the ds.

    also, you will have to update your system if you want e-shop and internet...

    also, spotpass will still be included in the original firmware, so your 3ds will update automatically in May when the system update is released...hence "AUTOMATIC UPDATES"

    Ugh, that's just great. Hacking the 3DS will just kill it and the online community.

    i love nintendo but ever since the gba they only produce shit and shovelware i will buy a psp2 and will wait with 3ds to see if piracy works and if there will be really good games cos the real reason for the 3ds is not to give gamers somethn great but to do somethn about the low sales of the ds products so after ds and dsi now is 3ds and they make it seem its a new device but its not

    I gotta agree with catboy on this, i don't wanna see the 3DS hacked, the PS3 was recently hacked and anything to do with online went straight to hell, i really don't wanna see that happen with this brilliant piece of hardware.

    no seriously, It's probably true that DS Flashcarts are the cause of all the shitty ds games. If there is ever a hack out, i hope it is homebrew support only. and to never have a ROM loader, Seriously who uses that shit NOT for piracy? NO ONE.

    I'm sorry, what? Punctuation please.

    I don't want to see the 3DS get hacked early, or maybe not even hacked at all, it could cause problems for the legit users.

    Incorrect, the DS has produced a large list of great games.
    As well where are you getting your facts from? The DS has been the top selling handheld system for quite some time, it's only recently that the sells started to go down, which makes scene since the 3DS is on the way and anyone who wants a DS already has a DS.

    the ds sales were always losing, that is why nintendo brought dsi, dsi xl and so on.

    now this didnt cut the cake anymore and they bring the 3ds cos they need more unit sales as nintendos profit is falling a lot just look at the numbers from 2 days ago nintendo still makes profit but its dramatically falling

    so they bring this 3ds not cos they have soemthn great for gamers but to sell a lot of units and have good profits again! so thats why the psp2 is much more interesting

    I don't understand why people think hackage of the 3DS will be so detrimental to it. All available consoles and handhelds are hacked right now and great games are still being made for them.

    Eh I don't care either way, if it gets hacked I'm sure there could be a downgrader. I'm gonna go with the flow and enjoy what they offer.

    Each one of those has sources connected to them

    Now where are those falling sale?
    Back up your statements with facts instead of blabbering fanboy bullshit
    Indeed they are a bit lower, but as I said before everyone who wants a DS already has a DS and now are waiting for the 3DS

    Sounds like they're just waiting for the first wave of 3DS flashcarts to emerge so they know what they're supposed to be blocking with the updates.
