    Nintendo has received info that may if I arent telling you may disable the useage of all roms distributed on the internet. They may or may not be able to pull it off but what it is is that when they make a game cartrige in the factory they will program a unique code in each one of them and if someone puts the game on the internet when they upload it it will run a hidden program to check nindendo servers to see if the code is already on a game card if it is it will either not let it upload or it will not run on a flash cart. This will be bad if they can make it work

    Sorry, the possibility of that is nearly impossible. I don't think tech like that even's been made yet. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Are you stupid or something. Andrew just told you they CANNOT do it. It would take much longer for them to program every individual game with a different code because they would need to change that code on every single game. also, even if this was possible, you could easily bypass it by turning the wifi off so it has no way to send the information to nintendo

    That is just impossible for so many reasons that I wont bother listing. Get us a source for this news or its just some silly spam.
