    Right behind you
    It was discovered today by IGN accidentally that the 3DS analyzes every photo you take and keeps a secret log of ones it considers "obscene". Whenever you go online, this log is checked by Nintendo, and if anything is found, the screen is replaced by a graphic of Mario looking disappointed and the 3DS thereafter fails to display anything else.

    When asked for comment, Nintendo only said they had to keep up their reputation as a family friendly company.

    reputation. it's mentioned above. the '3DS' name is their property. it's not good for ninty's rep if it's gonna be known that Nintendo does nothing about obscene stuff.

    Oh, drat. Well, I can't say I wasn't expecting this. This may alter my decision to purchase a 3DS, honesty.

    Oh, well. There's still the NGP! At least then, I can still touch my precious obscene photos. From front and behind!


    Also:
    That's an opinion. [​IMG]

    what i mean by kids is 3-7 years old. older than those have a high chance of easily finding this site and learn how to bypass this. assuming that there will be those who will.



    just curious, anyone tell my how do i sound with the way i type in this post?

    You sound a bit too serious, heehee. If you're not careful, you may fall of the edge of the forum! [​IMG]

    No, I don't really wish to sexually solicit children using the awesome power of three-dimensional photos.

    As far as you know.
