    Does anyone think that it would be possible to share Virtual Console by putting it on an SD and sending it over the internet?

    But it will be a long time for the 3DS to be hacked so it'd be a while till WADS on the 3DS

    Based on the Wii's set-up (if you try to load VC/WW off an SD card it actually checks if it's purchased on your console) I very highly doubt it will be possible to share downloaded 3DS stuff until it's hacked. (which isn't a guarantee; console security is getting better)

    You can't just share legit game through SD card. DSiware is an example of that. Each legit game you download is encrypted with a key that only your very DSi has. Other DSis do not have your key. Your key is one-of-the-kind.

    Same can be said with 3DS. Each 3DS contains an unique key that others do not have.

    What are you on about? He is asking about the 3DS. YOU are the one trolling.

    Anyway, thankfully it will not be that simple to pirate games. Just as it was not that simple on the Wii, nor DSi, it will not be that simple on the 3DS.

    Well, Nintendo will surely:
    a. encrypt each Virtual Console game using an assymetric crypt so it can only be decrypted on your unique 3DS unit
    b. and/or, when running the game for the first time, check on Nintendo's servers whether you have really bought this game

    Of course, you can try to attack this scheme by:
    a. dumping decrypted WAD straight from 3DS' memory using some clever hardware
    b. mimicking Nintendo's servers to always reply "YES YOU ARE ALLOWED TO PLAY THIS GAME"

    Maybe vc on 3ds should be called Virtual Handheld to avoid confusion in future.
