    It seems what Nintendo did isn't allowed tho. They banned his console that wasn't hacked because he hacked another console and they used his Nintendo ID to trace the console wich wasn't hacked to also ban that. It is fair to ban a hacked console but to ban an unhacked console is typical Nintendo being above the law again.

    Then tell me please how they can ban an unhacked console because he hacked another console by tracing his account to multiple units and banning them all because of what he did on another console ? How do that gives them to right to ban an unhacked console ?

    oh well its an opinion, I think people are allowed to have them....even if they are just butthurt that other people have differing values and probably just trying to get patted on the back for being so virtuous .....as do I sometimes I'm sure XD

    I think its funny they think people care that much though, I'm sure most people looking to use hacks are aware of the risk of banning and don't care anyway

    This. I'm sure people outside the hacking community just assume these guys(Shiny Quagsire, etc) are the ones cheating online, and are making evil cheats that allow them to cheat online. So, part of me can understand why they hate us. I hope Nintendo bans the fuck out of online cheaters, they ruined online for a bunch of games on 3DS and Wii-U.

    Did you make any hacks then or did you just use hacks made by others ? Find it funny that everybody is saying US like everybody on Gbatemp are hackers themselves while they just use hacks made by other people. Using hacks by other people doesn't magically make you a hacker

    Bad title. The more interesting stuff to take away from is the fact that Nintendo will now look into accounts of users and ban any device that is associated with that account if it had been linked to a hacked console before.

    NintendoLife looooves to cry about how GBAtemp ruined the integrity of the 3DS, and how if a console gets hacked, no one makes games for it anymore. They have only the best logic, such as "hacking is illegal", and "hackers should be jailed".

    Still not as bad as GameFAQs and certain subreddits considering GBAtemp a romsite tho lol.

    Not really. The users there are but not the news staff. The news staff actually links gbatemp as news source whereas gbatemp made it a policy to not link to nintendolife for whatever silly reason.

    Because we don't source any news sites unless its an exclusive article? There's never a reason to source them as there's an original source for the news, be it PR or emails that's far better to link or quote to.

    yeah funny that.

    if you dont want to be hacked, dont sell so much of your product. sales and hacking go hand in hand. it's just how the hacking economy works.

    To them, making hacks makes you the devil, if you use hacks, you're the devil. All hacks are evil, and kills Nintendo.

    I don’t know. Maybe you were taught news reporting that way, but I was taught to always post the actual source for your news and the original source at the same time. Like, “Source, via bla bla” or something. It’s about giving credit to your actual source and don’t just leech off of them. That way other sites will respect you and do the same for you (they can see where their backlinks are coming from).

    Ya hear that, ShinyQuagsire? You're the first patron of Nintendo's new Minority Report Division™!
