If we can download game files from Nintendo's servers, why aren't upcoming 3DS games being leaked?

    Because I know eShop games are preloadable.

    We need the encyrpted and decrypted keys in order to download the games (reason for the title key website). Without these keys, we cannot successfully download the game. A great example of this would be the Pokémon Sun/Moon special demo. We could find out the titleid and the demo in Nintendo's servers, but without the decrypted key, we could not successfully download the game (it would fail).

    You need the keys in order to decrypt the preloaded game. The files on the CDN are useless without that.

    EDIT: damn, ninja'd
