i hope a hacker gets the code and bricks every single one of these devices remotely as they are activated by customers.

Waits for there to be a false positive or some other error and nintendo "mistakenly" bricks a few hundred thousand unmodded consoles.

[citation][nom]FloKid[/nom]Who would want this piece of crap anyways. Sounds like Nintfago wants to take money from people just like Bill Fags.[/citation]
Already over 400,000 people in Japan with the 3DS sold out everywhere at launch? Your comment has to be one of the most retarded I've read in awhile, full of fan-boyism and poorly attempted bashing. Nice try troll.

I'm sure some homebrew software would disable this and/or the automatic system updates.
This 'approved SD card' thing is a bit concerning though - not exactly sure what that means at this stage.

More brickin'?? Nintendo should stop doing this type of crap. Once a system is bought, the client can do whatever it want AT IT'S OWN RISK!! Until then the console is owned by the company. Instead using updates to "protect" its consoles like the fools of Sony, they SHOULD focus on building game consoles that surpasses the next gen consoles from its competitors and add games that are focused to the more mature and adult themed clientele cuz the kiddies/family clientele ain't enough. I want more bloodshed, more oral obscenities, more violent situation, more hoes to ***, more hood politics, more psycho thrillas, etc to the Nintendo Wii and beyond console. The best games for the themes that i like are in PC, Xbox360, PS3 and even in the psp and ds and many of them are multi platform.

That's great since the only Nintendo users I know are 10 years old and younger, they only thing they hack is the cookie jar. Nintendo is irrelevant.

So don't allow your 3ds onto any wireless networks. Easy fix. Either that or people start hacking the firmware through a homebrew route like what they do for new Wii updates that block/remove any hacks. It's just another thing to hack. No real threat to pirates here :p

So...the first thing you do when you buy a new car is void your warranty, right? Great advice.

No, but the car doesn't magically BRICK when you install a bigger exaust, remove the limiter, get new pimpy rims and some neon lights.

If these shitty companies proceed to enforce their silly ways of saying: "You buy our product, but we still own it", who knows what might happen to the world industry as a whole. This isn't about piracy, heck this isn't even about Sony and Nintendo, they are small fish. What happens when EVERY company that sells products does this and doesn't get punished? "Ok, you buy that ketchup from us for use on a hamburger, but if you put it over a chickenburger, the ketchup has a kill switch that makes it turn into piss in your mouth"

Choose your sides people...that's all that matters..your either in for corp control or out..that's it. Each new system is coming with more absurdity..I'm on the out side, you?
