now we have seen that DSi Does not support ANY current Flashcart. Thats a great move on nintendo's part for slowing down piracy. the addition of an SD slot was a smart strategic move on their part too. This would force most if not all Flashcart company's out of business. People say that it was a dumb move for Nintendo to add SD slot because it will eliminate the need for a flashcart and allow the DS games to be played directly from the SD slot, but what they dont understand is that nintendo put the sd slot taking piracy in to consideration. Hacking a hardware is usually done freely by leisure hackers who do not get paid other than donations. with this move Nintendo eliminated all current piracy devices and with firmware updates by nintendo via wireless even if hackers do end up hacking SD slot. any update by nintendo's part would patch that. Of course there is always the possibility of DSi taking the PSP/flashme route and using custom firmware. but that will cause more people to consider not doing it. I personally think the current piracy of NDSL is too high. When the Original DS came out sure it was hacked and allowed passme 1 and 2 and eventually nopass slot-2 and Flashme. but all those products discouraged a lot of people from buying it because it required extra knowledge that most people do not want to take the time out and read. With the appearance of slot-1 it takes out all hard work thus giving every 10 year old kid the ability to get all Roms. Knowing nintendo, the DSL will be dropped 2-3 months after DSi launch and making the DSL hardware useless thus making all current flashcarts useless and lowering its piracy. I know for a fact that DSi will get hacked in some way shape or form allowing roms to be read. It will also be done in a way where people who are not willing to take the risk (via Flashme [possibility of bricking device], Passme type device [self made hardware]) will not do it. The DSi will decrease piracy on their part. and on the homebrew part allow non stupid people to continue what they do and for the stupid people to just buy the actual game. Interesting concept, paying for a game I think thats how developers make money.
