    Makes me wonder if Nintendo can detect the thousands of people using the same header in smash bros

    There was actually a statement released from Nintendo acknowledging that they had banned some players in error.

    ^ Yeah they did.

    I do hope they ban players who cheat and try to hack the game online. Those kind of people take out the fun of playing it.

    I wonder if they are testing grounds for banning Gateway players

    I don't think they care that much. If that was the case, hundreds of Gateway users would have been already banned. The headers are what would make this process quite simple for Nintendo.

    Well, unless the headers are like serial numbers for that particular game's online access. If headers are just serial numbers for access to ninty online services, it will be much harder to enforce. Given that you can use any header to make a game online playable, I think it will be the latter.

    We already know that those are specific cartridge IDs since months ago.
