    What's stopping people from hitting "new game"? (I don't own the game don't even know if it's an option) but surely hitting that would let you start the game again and let autosave do it's thing?

    I wonder if one could use the SMS2 to rip save file then reinsert.

    I'm pretty sure it is away around this no reset save. Even then once sells drop, they would most likely change it by spot pass.

    It should be possible. Game patch?

    Are you referring to the possible ripping method? Do you really think they would change it via spotpass, is that possible?

    I wish it wasn't imposed on the buyer though.

    I was planning to buy it used to save money, with this I might not get it at all.

    This isn't just about selling games.

    So there is no way to play through the game after its beaten? It's becomes a piece of plastic?

    If you've ever played Mercenaries on RE5, you would just know that it means that all stages and characters will remain unlocked, along with all ranks and the like for completing each mission. Basically, somebody who bought it used would have nothing to shoot for.

    Great news, this will encourage 3DS hacking and eventual FLASHCART

    what a scam by capcom , what happens if you want to restart the game or if you make some bad choices and want to redo it or you lend a copy to someone
    i hope 3ds is hacked soon because this game deserves it
    otherwise i hope someone finds a method to kill the save - reboot when saving or something

    You guys do understand that Mercenaries isn't a resident evil game with a story right? Its more like the mini-games from RE5 on consoles/pc.

    You'll also inherit whatever name the previous owner gave his character. So if you got a copy that I sold, for example, you would be named 'Snailface'.

    Yes, but buying a game used with everything stuck on likely 90-100% unlock is pointless or the fact you can't force reply value by resetting the game is really mess up.


    Does SSF4 3d does this?

    I understand, and i think its fucked up, but I have feeling people think this is going to be a story driven game.
