If they do it in America then they can be sued and I guarantee they'll lose the case. You can't brick someone's device that they paid for because they used 3rd party software. Sure, the software itself could brick your system if used incorrectly but for Nintendo to have a way to brick the system on command, it would be illegal. Not to mention not everyone who uses an R4 uses it for piracy.

They won't brick systems using 3rd party software/hardware, they will brick systems using NOT LICENSED (by Nintendo) products. Not licensed = ilegal.

They will get away if they have a good lawyer. It's even on the manual, so there is no excuse this time.

Before seen actual prove i call this BS!They probably put that advertisement on the software and hardware just to scare people off!

zeal0us2702d ago

probably won't work for someone who don't live around a internet connection, if it does g4u nintendo

regardless of what its(3ds) is promise to do, ppl still will pirate games.

Some hacker will break the system its all in a matter of time
