    System Transfer is a feature that enables you to transfer downloadable software already purchased on a Nintendo 3DS system to another Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo DSiWare games & applications purchased on a Nintendo DSi or a Nintendo DSi XL system also can be transferred to your Nintendo 3DS.* This function will be available after hardware launch.
    *There is a limit to how many times transfers can be made. Some software may not be transferred. More Information Coming Soon

    Just looking over the new 3ds site out of semi-excitement.
    We knew about the DSiware transfers, but the 3ds one is new to me at least.

    I also spotted a mistake in the date someone started using the camera. (4/12/2011)

    It's likely a one way procedure, so the 3DS that does the sending can no longer play the software itself.

    I hope I can transfer the games off of my broken DSi...and my DSiXL after I sell it (the games are registered on Club Nintendo, so they better let us recover games with it [​IMG]).

    I though transfer was only allowed from a DSi to a 3DS, and 3DS to 3DS transfer was not allowed

    when you download something on the 3DS it gives the user a limited license or something like that to transfer it to a couple other 3DS's
