    I forgot what type of security they've put on the 3DS. I think it was ARM 9? could someone tell me.

    Thanks

    Arm9 isn't security its a processor.

    I don't think they've mentioned the security on the 3DS, I might be wrong.
    However, I really don't think its worth thinking about when the system is nowhere near the market place yet.

    When asked about piracy, Mr. Miyamoto commented on that he wouldn't divulge anything, other than they are continuing the fight against piracy.

    There's a feature on some new arm chips that ... stuff.
    You read it in the original spec thread, it's called TrustZone.

    The processor on the 3DS hasn't been confirmed.

    As far as I know, Nintendo are very, very angry with piracy, haha. The 3DS will no doubt have some scary security.

    I bet that the Flash Card Teams will overcome it though. After all, they need to make money too, and the potential money to be made with Flash Cards on the 3DS is too great to let Nintendo win.

    The regular style DS has RSA security. It obviously wasn't as effective as they might have hoped.

    I just hope that the 3DS will bring an end to piracy. It really hurts a lot of gaming industries, and it should be stopped.

    I do pirate, but I want to get out of the habit.

    Of course, if all of us had lots of money to burn, we'd most likely all pay for our games. However, I for one, don't have any money to buy games with. And, when I do, it has to go to more essential things.

    And sometimes we all get a little tired of paying full price for a game that turns out to be quite abysmal.

    And sometimes people just refuse to buy anything, lol. I dislike those people, they make us look bad.

    Even hardcore pirates should hope the 3DS doesn't get cracked in the first year or two. It needs to get established first, or there won't be any games to pirate!

    It's more of a positive than pre-owned games.

    Very true. I forgot about that. Piracy is identical to buying a pre-owned game since none of the profits go to the developer.
    And it's also worse than piracy, since the customer was obviously willing to pay cash for the game (usually $5-20 less than the retail price).

    Yes same. Hopefully the bigger file sizes for each game will put me off and stop me from pirating. I shall try and buy all the games i play

    piracy is a myth to a certain degree, and I say that for several reasons ... 1. just because you can download it , doesn't mean you would buy it....

    Exactly. That's why when Nintendo claims they lost X amount of dollars, I don't believe them.
    I wouldn't have bought 95% of the games on my Acekard2i. And for the 5% I would have bought, I don't have the money.

    Honestly, I pirate like all you do, but when something is impressive enough I gladly throw my money at it. I spent about $700.00 on the DS(Lite) in new product (buying used games doesn't support growth), before I started using flashcarts. Nintendo reaped more money from me than a casual consumer buying Nintendogs and the Imagine series.

    I buy new Xbox360 games at launch, because they impress, and I can't wait (Alan Wake for example). It feels worth it, and when the 3DS releases, I don't mind paying for actual games if it feels worth it. If 3DS eventually finds itself a good flashcart, I'll probably buy it. I'm a collector though, so I'll probably own all Mario titled games, as well as Nintendo produced games, but alll that other questionable garbage? Well that's what flashcarts are for. If it's good, support it, and buy that shit. Otherwise, Nintendo should've never approved it.
