    The DS didn't exactly have a good way of "flashing" the firmware, so they had to rely on card-based piracy protection. The DSi, however, could through system updates. Expect the same, but more potency, with the 3DS.

    I hope it can transfer data with the 3DS in sleep mode. I don't want to have my 3DS out in public often, just to get some added bonuses.
    Plus, I could get mugged! [​IMG]

    Anyone else notice that it said backwards-compatible?

    Probably being lazy.
    Actually, if they we're to put forced updates into the system in order to play games you bought, wouldn't that be illegal.

    I heard somewhere that forced updates are illegal. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Well, in that sense I believe the NSMB Wii forced update would be Illegal in my eyes.

    Actually if that does fullfill those requirements for it to be illegal (If that is the case), then that means that every update that Nintendo has forced upon you has been illegal.

    Not sure about legality of things. But you aren't ever forced to do anything, you could never pick it up again. And they won't advertise "Never have to update!" so it's not false advertising

    At your window!
    About being force to update being illegal thing.
    I think if they add it to the Users Agreement (which no one ever reads [​IMG] )thing then its not illegal as you agreed to it.

    Why is everyone so sure this is gonna be hacked? I think the protection is gonna be as good as the PS3 and that took quite a while before it was successfully hacked. Only time will tell in the end though so let's wait and see, eh? [​IMG]
