Okay Nintendo..buff up that damn security!

HolyOrangeCows2773d ago

I'm starting to think that it's a publicity stunt. I mean, come on. Do you really think that they would allow the hardware to keep getting stolen? Even conceivably if the first was taken off of a conveyor belt....Nintendo would have bumped up security and kept better track of each one if they really cared.

What do you think would get more attention and publicity, though? "Nintendo reveals guts of 3DS!" or "3DS Stolen! Disassembled and leaked!"?

EXACTLY. I think Nintendo learned a lot from Sony's PS3 slim "leaks". Unique way to advertise.

Did you ever consider that a few of them were stolen at the same time and now that the thief has had his/her fun, they sold them off or something!

The good thing is, now that the innards have been leaked, we don't have to wait so long for the Psp2/Phone! Now Sony can just get right to the copying of the tech, put a spin on it and call it their own!

Well, it free from of advertising, wouldn't be surprised, I also wouldn't be surpried if it'd be hacked month before release...

all the jail break news making the site depressing.

go to the ds page, see actual news.

*gets giddy inside *

I keep getting worried the 3DS might get hacked for "homebrew" now that the 3DS hardware got leaked and all.

MGRogue20172773d ago (Edited 2773d ago )

Oh, it will no doubt get hacked.. Eventually

I can assure you of that.

dkgshiz2773d ago

This thing will be hacked. Mobile devices are like childs play when it comes to hacking them.

Baka-akaB2773d ago (Edited 2773d ago )

the moment nintendo announced that it would be region locked for games , the temptation of hacking it probably tripled anyway

lizard812882772d ago

Region locking is gay. all the more reason to hack it

fatstarr2772d ago

no need to fear. its just hardware
if theres no os on it hackers cant do anything yet.
how can you crack something that doesnt exist.

How are they able to keep stealing 3ds? Shouldn't unreleased hardware have heavy security in the companies that make them, so they don't get leaked?

Big Guard + Sexy Girl Distraction = Free 3DS

Otheros002773d ago

By the way it keeps getting leaked, the 3ds would be hacked way before it comes out.

wiggles2773d ago

screw hacking...the way these things are going, Nintendo won't have anyone to actually sell the product to lol
