Why haven't you updated your 3DS yet, Anon? There's tons of new stuff on the eShop.
We might even get a Smash demo later this month. You won't want to spend 30 minutes trying to download a system update when that happens.
>not keeping all of your software up-to-date
Don't do that.
Mine appears shit
I need tales of the abyss on the eshop tho
>They don't support stealing games!
>They must be "Nintendrones"!
Quality post, my friend! I like it!
I've seen this exact same situation several times now.
Someone mentions 3DS homebrew or the possibility of piracy on it.
Suddenly we get a flood of "HAVE YOU UPDATED YOUR 3DS YET?"
Man, you guys make this shit way too fucking obvious.
i never update
it's not that i dont want to, it's that i'm too lazy too
whenever i'm ready to play a game, the console tells me to do an update and it'll have to restart
well fuck that, i want to game, i dont want to wait. so i click cancel
and i repeat the process. my console still tells me to fucking update to this day
It's not a matter of supporting or not supporting piracy, it's a matter of being idiots. Tricking people this way is stupid and won't accomplish shit other than making, like, five random anons angry. And when it comes to doing dumb shit, fanboys are the first suspects.
That should be a proof that we have dozens of Nintendo shills and employees on /v/. These threads happen always when something regarding homebrew/piracy on Nintendo systems is announced.
Why would they? Bricking the system would decrease their sales and people would just buy a 2nd hand 3ds.
Homebrew doesn't negatively affect their sales unless it's emulators and shit, besides they can't brick a console on purpose because it goes against so many EU laws
I haven't opened my 3ds in at least 4 months now.
No reason to turn it on or even touch it honestly. Friends had shit in their lives go crazy so they never came around, so no more Monster Hunter, and playing that shit solo is godawful once you get to G Rank. And no other game is worth caring about on the system at the moment.
Well it can still be bricked by an update, just not on purpose.
If an update accidentally bricks 3DS users who play Stormbreaker(DSTwo flash cart) then yes nintendo will put forth good will.
If an update accidentally bricks Gateway/Any other dedicated 3DS flashcart, then nintendo could care less.
If homebrew/piracy are based around mistakes in the code, then a mistake that bricks consoles is possible if the flashcart is abusing those mistakes
>mfw I dumped my NAND on 6.x so I can be on the latest firmware and downgrade back to it whenever I want.
Eat shit shill
>Want to buy something on eshop
>Oh man I hope my flash card still works
>Get latest update from website
>Now it works
SuperCardTwo looks really sketchy sometimes, but it works great.
No piracy unless you have a 3DS with firmware 4.5 or lower, then there are a couple of flashcarts you can buy. Userland exploit for homebrew being released soon that will eventually lead to piracy and can apparently already defeat region lock despite lack of kernel access.
It needs to be a 3DS with old firmware. Below 5.x.x I think. Then you need to buy a flashcart which is pretty pricey but obviously less than a bunch of jap games. That's pretty much it.
>So if i buy a 3ds now what do i have to do to pirate games?
get a 3ds with <=4.5 firmware and gateway or wait for alternative flashcarts to pop up
or if you feel like a cheeky cunt you could always wait for smegaum to release his exploit any day now i guess
The only currently working way to pirate 3DS games is using a flashcard (Gateway) that only works on 4.0-4.5 firmware consoles (which are getting progressively rarer).
There's a softmod that works on updated consoles coming out later this month, but by itself it doesn't allow piracy, so if it actually gives us a way to pirate games we'll have to wait months before there's a practical way to do so.
Best Flashcart thread/
R4i 3DS Gold Deluxe (for jews like
Add your own unknown rip-off cartridges here. Man. I feel bad for Gateway. They were the first gud goy pirates for 3DS.
I found a cheap 4.1 firmware 3ds maybe i will buy it. I am guessing you can play upcoming games with it.
How big is it though? Like i have a pretty big hands should i go for XL maybe?
So long as the game does not require an update you are good(May have issues with MK7/X|Y due to having updated versions for online)
Also big hands just go for the XL. I tried going back to a standard 3DS and man that thing is tiny
I like the 3DS but the one thing I wished it had was a better online infrastructure. the friendslist is piss poor, playing with people is difficult (or non existent for most games) and there is no way to chat with people.
That is the one thing I think the VITA did better
Some new games and probably Nintendo's upcoming releases actually aren't compatible yet due to a new encryption, but the Gateway team should release an update fixing that soon.
Doesn't firmware spoofing allow you to play those games anyway?
Its not that the games are unplayable, just that the updates are on the eShop. I don't own a Gateway so no idea on if the games are patchable to spoof v1.x versions of said games
>I can't get out. NEET4lyfe
call me a normalfag or whatever but seriously just look around you might be able to snipe something good and save money instead of hoping some faggot does not overprice his shitty cumstained 3ds just because he heard that low FW is raising the value
I don't own a Gateway either, but you should be able to access the eShop and download the updates by spoofing the newest firmware version through emuNAND. I think it's not working right now due to the eShop's encryption key being updated as well, but once they fix that it shouldn't be a problem anymore.
I'm glad they introduced the account system.
You could download demos anytime
You can't download your games again if your system breaks, gets stolen or anything like that
You have to get some faggot account to download free demos
You still can't download your games to another system
What an improvement!
Seriously, fuck Nintendo for this.
I felt the same way at first but I've grown to not really mind.
If I'm ever playing with anyone outside of the matchmaking a game has than it's with people on /v/ which means I can talk to them on here.
If you don't want to look for an old 3DS in stores, you can always check eBay and the like. Most people will be glad to give you all the info you want, some of them put that stuff directly in the item description. Although depending on wether the seller knows about piracy or not it might be massively overpriced.
you can download to another system but it requires a call to nintendo. It was because of how bad microsoft handled accounts on the 360(pseudo piracy with account sharing)
If 10 people shared their accounts among themselves, and 1 person bought a game, all 10 had access to the game.
I bought my 3DS for the games anon.
Is that why you think people by handhelds? Because they're just SO addicted?
I reiterate, you are a cunt.
Why are you even in this thread?
Seriously? You do realize that you literally came in here just to act like a cunt. How miserable are you anon?
Seriously anon, I'm here for you. What's the matter, kiddo?
Don't try and act like there's nothing wrong with you.
That system sucks dick and I can practically guarantee that they'll just give importers like me the finger, if not close down my account once they realize it.
On that subject, thanks a lot for the region locking, Nintendo! It's a good thing that you aren't known for being complete shitheads about release dates, Nin"we took literally half a year to release Brawl in PAL regions and that's counting from the US release date"tendon!
People don't understand trolling nowadays
From the OP you can tell it's obviously someone who wants to make a joke thread "hurr hurr muh nintendo marketers" and you guys think you're geniuses when you call it suspicious. No shit it's suspicious, thats because the OP wants you to think it's suspicious. If there were ACTUAL marketers here, they'd be more subtle and do something like "Can't wait for the Smash Bros demo coming out soon!"
I'll sell my blue 2ds with bravely default etrian odd untold and tales of the abyss
I don't have a real use for a handheld anymore I'm either at work or home usually my work is a workshop so bringing it there would be dumb and at home I just PC or console
>update "friend"'s 3DS while he's on the shitter
Might be because piracy killed software support for the Wii, DS and PSP last generation and people don't want to see that repeated?
>b-b-b-but best selling systems!
Doesn't mean shit if people don't buy software to go with it.
I'm gonna go ahead and just refer to you as 'Cunt' from now on. It'll save time.
Cunt, let's not forgot that you're in a thread that doesn't interest you for sole purpose of essentially telling us this thread doesn't interest you.
Just think long and hard about that and tell me you're not a miserable cunt, Cunt.
>latest firmware is exploitable
>Cunt, let's not forgot that you're in a thread that doesn't interest you for sole purpose of essentially telling us this thread doesn't interest you.
just thought I'd remind you.
I'm not that anon but he's right, you're the cunt here. You came in a thread about handhelds to tell everyone that handhelds are shit because of arbitrary bullshit reasons, and then started throwing random insults around when you got called out. I don't know if you're an ebin troll or just a mature gamer that only plays mature games on mature platforms, but you're being a faggot.
The DS is the only console of the ones you mentioned that might have been affected by piracy, and even then it never completely died before support naturally slowed down in the last 2 years of its life. The Wii was abandoned mainly because of its userbase not actually buying games, and the PSP only died in the west simply because it sold like shit over here (which is basically what's happening with the Vita right now, and the Vita certainly isn't pirate friendly).
>tfw not updating
i hope someone makes a lewd application kind of like this image
Will never have a demo of smash on EShop. I was hoping they put a mk8 demo, but nope.
I know the softmod itself doesn't allow piracy, but now that people can run homebrew on the 3DS it's fairly likely that new exploits will be discovered, especially when people that aren't as morally upright as smealum will start working on it. I say flascard-less piracy will be a thing in a few months.
>Smash 3DS demo
i decided to grant your wish anon enjoy your demo but it
will only have 3 uses
>I say flascard-less piracy will be a thing in a few months
dunno anon past hacking scene history taught me to never expect anything good to happen but i guess we will see
i still have heavy doubts
Most of the work has already been done at this point. Unless the 3DS has super tight security at a level where there's no reason to have such a thing, homebrew could possibly go anywhere from here.
