I know this has been discussed several times already but I still don't see the point why everybody is afraid Nintendo starts banning everyone and checking if you play only VC games you bought. I don't mean the downloading of VC games you didn't buy because of the ticket you get when installing the hacked VC game, but just the installing. I mean, yeah there is a little difference between playing hacked VC games and full games with mod-chip. But the point is - until now Nintendo didn't do anything offensive against people using modded consoles. They could have done so many things: they could recognize you are playing a game you shouldn't be able to play (or check if you got double channels or something like that), they could have marked you when playing Super Mario Galaxy without updated mod-chip and - hey, just because you still can play games doesn't mean they don't know you got a mod-chip in your device. When you install Virtual console games everyone gets in panic and talks about "risking" something. Some people say they can see you play a game you didn't buy - well, maybe they could, but that's the same thing with f.e. Mario Galaxy. And now I want to know - why should they act when you install VC games when they don't when you try to play a copied Mario Galaxy which gives you a error message because of the modchip? The worst thing that can happen is - at least that's what I think - that Nintendo blocks the hacked VC games in the future but I doubt they ban you (what wouldn't be such a problem with Nintendo's poor online service) or even track you down with your private address you gave them when registering. Not even Microsoft does it like that with banned Xbox 360s - they just ban the console! Sorry if you're annoyed about another one who makes this topic to a thread but I am just annoyed of people talking about their horror visions of what Nintendo maybe will do. I don't say they won't do anything, just that it's unlikely because if they did something they would have done it already, before hacked VC games appeared.
