    Brick Nintendo before they brick you? Hahaha, what a campaign. I suppose that's Nintendo's way to defend against possible hacker attacks like the ones on PSN.

    Are those guys morons? You aren't able to put in your name or address on the 3DS, your age, gender and vague geographical location is hardly relevant and why the hell shouldn't the 3DS store information about its own serial number and ID? Oh dear, the 3DS stores data about the games you play and even uses save data. WHAT WILL WE DO NOW? NINTENDO IS WATCHING OUR EVERY MOVE.

    If this kind of stuff is worth targeting the 3DS for, well, we might as well stop using any kind of technology that does more than tell the time. We can't use something with an alarm function, though, since that "keeps track of information created while using the device". Which is horribly, horribly wrong.

    I agree with some of it. For example, them having access to your pictures?!? WHY?!?

    But for other parts I can't see their point. As Wintrale said, it's perfectly fine for your 3DS to upload information on your serial number.

    And then there's the border: I think you should be able to choose whether Nintendo can see the software you are using.

    You know all those people who said they were gonna take a 3D picture of their "parts"? Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're either not going to anymore, or will delete them asap. [​IMG]
