Please, be informed that I do not know whether or not this has been covered, but it seems that users who will be using the MicroSDXC Card will no longer be able to stay on older FW while using game saves on their SDXC, which has a capacity of 64+ GB. So far, this isn't very big news, as it says nothing on microSD(HC) cards or if formatting the MicroSDXC card will do. It seems stupid to include this unless they are formatting SD cards with their own format, which will cripple pirating on any level once it becomes an issue.

TL;DR Version:
  • Nintendo says updating is required for microSDXC usage
  • Says nothing about microSD(HC)
  • May be possible to bypass via formatting or not connecting to internet
  • Nintendo may be including a special format for SD cards which will explain this
  • May prevent pirating until a CFW that addresses this issue is created (still ages away)

What? Did you see the source?
"Please Note: An update via an internet connection is required to use microSDXC Memory Cards."
Did I write something wrong. Please let me know, I am new to this whole reporting thing.

A day 1 update is needed to use the card, not an update is needed to constantly use them. What probably happened is they couldn't get SDXC support in before shipping, so its a day 1 patch.

Well they definitely did not clarify that on the website. No where I have seen has said this.

As well as everything I have said, and being wrong in that, I still believe that Nintendo will release some sort of protection on their SD cards, probably a special format, or they will make it so you need constant updates to get it to work with SD cards.

And now this thread has been degraded to wild speculation.

Everything you said in this has no backing whatsoever, not even "they haven't done it on any handhelds", it is in their best interest, and it is most likely going to happen, that they will include a special save format
