As the Nintendo 3DS releases in Japan today, a lot of gamers are wondering if flashcarts such as the Acekard, EZ Flash or DS Two will work on the handheld.
Well that settles Piracy for the 3DS. Now for the consoles side of things.
Err not quite. Most hackers still havent got their greasy hands on it yet.
This article is referring to the currently released flashcarts for the DS. We will have to wait a couple of months to see if Nintendo has implemented a worthy security or not.
Of course they don't work. New flashcards that are built specifically to work with 3DS will be released shortly after the handheld's release.. -.-
-.- Exactly. It rejects the current flashcarts but that won't stop people from making new ones.
I'm sure Nintendo learned already from its mistake. So we'll see how long for the hackers to make a flashcart for the 3DS
It doesn´t matter if they make flashcart, while they don´t circumvent the system software, it is alright which was the psp case... Flash cart? easily spot-able, guessing the same gonna happen to the NGP...HOPE so.
Only time will tell!
Nothing really stays unhacked. As mentioned before, only time will tell.
Less than a year it'll be hacked.
i give 3 months...
Trust me. Hackers will find a way. They can hack into anythin. I bet theres some hacking into the government computers right now.
Good Luck NINTENDO!
Hopefully people aren't complete douche bags and will actually purchase their games for their system.
all people will buy games? lol
I want the 3DS region free! stupid nintendo for locking it. thats the only reason i hacked my wii to begin with.
I agree. Making the 3DS region locked was a very dumb move by Nintendo. That's just forcing people to get flashcarts as there are many Japanese games that never make it to the West.
Another one that will bite the dust!E guess the big N will have to make the same route has Sony!One step up two steps down.........playing catch the mouse!
There always seems to be a way, that's the biggest problem with piracy.
duh wait for new flashcards idiots
Whoever expected to pop in a DS flashcart with custom "DS" firmware and expect to play "3DS" games is retarded. There is no doubt in my mind the 3ds will be hacked/flashcart/whatever and be pirated it on.
Knowing Nintendo security history on all their devices..It will be hack after a month of its official release..
i really dont think that it will take long for them to hack the 3DS http://attackofthefanboy.co... Its just a rumor but its an article on it
Bad editing. Flashcarts no longer works? Should be "no longer work". Who approved this blatant error?
Naw i see the 3DS being hacked in just 2 or 3 months of release
