    BREAKING NEWS: Nintendo 3DS Smuggled off Chinese Assembly Line
    Someone has a Nintendo 3DS. Who is that someone? Well it’s apparently a Chinese factory worker who smuggled the device off-site. Problem is, he posted it on a forum, but the thread was deleted. Probably because it’s like, illegal. I’d venture to guess the device itself was being produced for one of the upcoming events like Nintendo World 2011 or the Nintendo 3DS Preview Event. Only question is, will the factory worker risk being found out and continue to leak details?[/p]

    A Nintendo 3DS which was smuggled by a Chinese factory worker off-site.I think it's quite newsworthy so I posted it here.Don't know how to post pics so you can just click the link for information.

    That's very cool. I'd love to see a tear down to see what's inside it. Or it being booted up to see the OS (if it's been flashed already).

    That guy is so fired. I wonder what this could mean for the future of 3DS development?

    I fixed it.

    Oh and MangaTom, it's 8BitWalugi. But don't worry about it, you just held the shift key down too long. I do that too sometimes [​IMG]

    Ok, looks better now, but again, this should be front paged.

    The first post will have to be overwritten with the formatted text though. That, and the picture can't be hotlinked. It has to be uploaded at pix.gbatemp.net.

    I find it sad that most of this discussion is about how to properly format a news article [​IMG]

    Anyway, does anyone think that Nintendo has anything interesting on the system? It would be awesome if he could find some stuff we've never seen yet.

    I don´t get the hype over the 3d ds I say give me more better games than a new consoles with few games that probably be so expensive even the ps3 will look cheap.

    Because thats exactly what Nintendo is known for! Making highend consoles/handhelds that cost a small fortune! /sarcasm

    Seriously if this guy gets fired he better have sold this thing on Ebay... he could probably live of the profits for a few months lol

    Also getting fired in China because of this probably means getting fired from life ;<


    And... wtf can he do with it? Its not like games are released yet nor does it say he stole a game aswell so in the end unless it has some onboard software (game wise) its still kinda useless

    I pre-ordered a red 3DS today at EB Games. They reckon it'll launch in red here in Australia supposedly. I'd like to see more pictures of that model. I'm tired of the black and light blue ones. Red is where it's at.

    if he does sell it just now on ebay, he might get caught by the ebay authorities
    i dont understand why u have to steal it... its not worth taking something when the games are not out yet... what are u gonna do with it? take 3d pictures?
    though the upper screen is quite big i must say

    Haha. Oh wow. Nintendo and Sony must be pretty embarrassed lately. How on Earth does something like this happen? They must have pretty lax security for something like this to go by unnoticed.


    Imagine if this unit has a non-final version of the OS without security features for these E3-type events. It could present some interesting information if the guy plans to leak more information about the unit.
