Nintendo takes down Gateway flashcart with new 3DS update

Gateway was in the news last month for declaring that it managed to create the first working 3DS flashcart. It allows games to run through microSD cards, which led to concerns regarding piracy. (3DS)

Yeah it's better if all the hacking stuff just happens in secret, because it will get to the system eventually and bypass whatever blockades Nintendo's been making, and the more that know about it the more piracy will influence the system. It's inevitable but annoying. (Still totally getting one heheheeehhh!)

to be expected but since it's been hacked, it'll be going back and forth from now on

So does a 3DS have forced updates or something?
animegamingnerd  +   744d ago
nope but you will need to update in order to access the eshop i think

I don't know why I'm getting disagrees. Its a legit question, I'm not bashing on 3DS >.>

I would wait for an actual flashcart like the ones the DS have. Also, Nintendo is wasting their times. With a flashcart, there is no need to update ever again. Even games that requires a higher firmware can be played on a lower firmware.

What I can't wait for is the WiiU hack. Definitely buying one once piracy is possible on the WiiU.
