3DS Piracy Cartridge Bricks User’s 3DS

A company known as Gateway has claimed to have cracked the 3DS and has allowed users to download and play ROMs using this device. The company claims that the primary use for the device is to play backups of titles that you own. However this is the claim that all console piracy device manufacturers use, the fact remains that a large majority of people use these devices to play illegal copies of video games. (3DS, Tag Invalid, Tech)

That news is late by a few months.

This is very old news. The cartridge also isn't that popular because its an utter bugger to use.

Nintendo have made it very clear that this could happen, you have no one to blame but yourself. Buy your games

If you pirate games and brick your console, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Supercard DSTWO is the way to go anyways. I love my emulators, and Supercard can handle them all.

Supercard DSTWO doesn't play 3DS ROMs. But it also doesn't brick your 3DS either.

Nice to see that gamers are so eager to throw each other to the wolves. Makes it a lot easier for the industry to exploit us.

That's a ridiculous assumption.

The OP tried to steal the work of other people and got burned.

He deserves what he's brought upon himself.

Since when do video game developers 'exploit' people by asking to be paid for their work?

Because YOU happen to not like the asking price?

You have the choice not to pay that price then and walk away.

This isn't exploitation, this is capitalism.

"Because YOU happen to not like the asking price?"

Now who's making assumptions?

When you buy hardware from a company, they should not be able to destroy said hardware if they don't like what you are doing with it. Or are you unaware that there are lots of people that use 'homebrew' for their own programming projects, and not piracy?

It's always been Nintendo policy to brick your console, thus destroying things you have paid for, if they don't like what you're doing with them. This, however you slice it, is exploitation, and only a sucker would blame the consumer.
