    I don´t know if this was posted before but as you see in the video, the 3DS games saves in the system and not in the cartdrige itself.

    It would be better if I could understand a single word of what the screens say.

    Kinda sucks for when you have to change consoles... a bit of unwanted hassle.

    We knew that already. Street Pass works through the save files, see.

    where else would it save it? there's probably a way to transfer your save to the sd card also, and if there isn't i wont be buying one as back up saves are the most important thing.

    I'm pretty sure it saves in the SD card. It even shows the Sd card symbol on the top screen.

    well it would have been a fair assumption to say that it saved to the card like with dsi and ds games. but the fact that things launched from slot 1 will have nand acces is good news (*hopes for a TP-like hack down the line*)

    That would be stupid as it enables vulnerabilities.

    This may explain the reason it comes with a 2Gb SD Card. Hopefully it will use that as a live storage media and we won't have to do all this swapping back and forth from card to internal memory.

    That is the downloadable 3DSware titles and the blocks it takes up on the 3DS not the cart game saves.

    Save data on the 3DS cart games are still on the cart not the system.

    Can't you just create a save game, then take the game cart out, insert it into another 3DS and check if the save is still accessible ?

    ... So this makes it harder to make a 3DS mode flashcart. The 3DS will find out you have the game saves of 30 games that you don't have, and then they will brick you....

    I just wonder if it will be possible to transfer saves. Nintendo is a bitch when it comes to stuff like that.

    There is no downloadable 3DSware titles yet.

    Just Nintendo?

    I have the same problem with several games on the PS3.

    I've seen this screen on the EU system, it did have save data for the Face Raiders and AR Games.

    Of course, DS games will still load save-data from the cartridge itself.

    I hope there is an option to save to the SD. It would make things SOOO much easier if I needed to get a second 3DS.
