    this is one funny thread, your more likely to succeed with a petition for nintendo to tell them let people play games for free.

    It just occurred to me that this might have been implemented as a way to monetize clone card users. They are after all offering to fix your console for 100$ (lol!)

    Let's see if they expand or advertise this 'service' further as a solution to the mess they've likely created...

    A DDoS or Twitter/facebook/e-mail/forum/whatever spam is more likely to work. Just sayin'.

    You know that scene in a movie, where the victim begs the killer not to kill them... ...then they do it anyway.

    The only way to stop GW from doing stupid things like this, is to not own a GW cart. People are still buying and using these, even though they are buying from someone who WILL TRY TO BRICK THEIR 3DS.

    What I actually recommend is that everyone send a quick email to sales@gateway-3ds.com and request they please remove the brick code or you will no longer be using GW out of fear and will advise others not to as well
