    Replace the console name in the URL with the other console.

    Ah, so that does the trick? From pc at least - but how do I enter this url into Freeshop on 3ds? (I know it doesn't work for first party titles anymore)

    Ah, that. No, that’s not what they said. They said that using emulators in a way to pirate games was against their rules, but they haven’t gone after anybody yet, mainly because that’s nearly impossible to measure.

    The FreeShop was the most ridiculous homebrew I've ever seen on a console. My friend* asked me the other day if it was like plundering CDN via the backdoor. I said nah, it's walking in through the front door because Nintendo had left the key in. And they've only just got around to changing the locks.

    There are enough other means to obtain titles for 3DS for those who want to, but I can still hardly believe just how much this system was broken apart by the hacking community. Thanks for the memories, FreeShop!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    ....sorry if I'm pissed I just hate all the recent stuff that happened in the past 2 weeks but we still have ways of dumping our own/rented games so in fact piracy will never die too bad pip

    Hm... This is interesting.
    Hopefully freeshop for Wii U comes soon. It would be great for those who want to play some random games

    Go wild while you can. I wouldn't update FBI soon, though.

    Make them, search 3dsoso/google, or titledb&pray.

    here is a question a food for thought as it were. if the 3ds (yes this includes all the other types as well) if its at end of life then why the heck should it matter to nintendo that we use the key to unlock the door to download a game? now it especially gets me on it too since i recently seen an ugly new system themed of animal crossing as well. nintendo needs to go ahead and let it go and grow up.

    Do you remember when discussion of piracy was forbidden and would get you a warning and then banned from the forums? When did that change? I missed that announcement.

    I'm with you on the piracy topic (of currently supported systems anyway). I love homebrew and emulators, but absolutely hate piracy. I'd like to know a realistic figure of how much of the 3DS market has been affected by piracy... like, have some developers cancelled games because of it, etc.? (I know we can't really come up with an accurate picture of this, with all the factors at play and dishonest use of numbers by all sides). The excuse of "I can't afford to pay for the games" doesn't entitle people to steal them. However, we're not going to change the culture around here. It seems completely taken over with piracy. It really kinda surprised me, especially with the Switch. I didn't expect to see this site so openly support piracy of Nintendo's flagship system. It has been frustrating and I've never been very vocal anyway. I mostly just read articles and threads on the site (obviously, by my post count), but sometimes I really want to speak up and say something. Again, we aren't going to change the mind of anyone who just doesn't care and thinks they're entitled to everything.

    I got into the 3DS pretty late (mid 2015), and started collecting every game I was interested in. Eventually, I started collecting every game I thought I might someday find interesting. lol. Today I have probably 80 to 90% of the 3DS library (complete physical releases) and even more DS games.

    I've been making an effort to support continuing development for the 3DS by buying EVERY game that's been physically released for the past year, which has been pretty easy since they've been so few. I am conflicted though... I am encouraged when I see Nintendo make attempts to protect their system because it says they still desire to support it at least a little longer, but it still makes me nervous because I do want to see it fully open when support for it is completely dropped. I think every system should be fully exploitable around the time they're no longer commercially on the market for the purpose of preserving its library. I hate eshop only releases and would really hate to see games purchased digitally be lost when Nintendo no longer supports them on their servers. When I buy a game, I want to be able to play it 10, 15, or 20 years from now. For this reason, I'm glad to see ways to backup those games. Personally, I've used freeshop to install the games I've purchased physically over the past year or so, because it saves me from having to go grab the cartridge when game updates get released. Pretty lazy of me. All in all, when freeshop is no more, no big deal -- I'll just have to get the games out of their cases for those updates.

    It's been much harder to keep up with the Switch releases, but I've still managed to buy 113 physical releases so far.

    All that said, I place a clear distinction between currently supported systems and those no longer commercially supported. Once games are only available second hand or through ebay, I couldn't care less how people acquire the game or ROM. Download away. If the money is only going to a second hand seller and not to anyone involved in producing the game, I see no "moral" problem with it (legal problem, of course, but not moral problem).

    I know pretty much NO ONE is still reading this, so I'll stop here. lol
