So, theoretically, you could insert a flash card into any 3DS of anyone you find and get Nintendo to brick it remotely?

I miss the days where you could buy something and actually have ownership of it.

Flash cards don't work that way and Nintendo can't (and doesn't) legally brick things on purpose.

There's nothing current piracy devices do that touches anything in the system software; you can't access the kernel at all from SLOT-1 on a DS or DSi, and it's probably the same on the 3DS.

If that's not the case, it won't be long before someone makes custom firmware or something like the Homebrew Channel, at which point thousands of users will void their warranty by installing the unauthorized software, void their bowels when their systems stop working come update time, and whine like three-year-olds on the Internet when Nintendo doesn't replace their bricked 3DSes.

You know, exactly like what happened with the Wii.

I'm getting the 3DS day 1. I'm most excited about the built-in Augmented Reality games, as they seem to be an innovative and fun use of AR technology.

Speaking of pathetic things, behold the 3DS launch title lineup. Note the dearth of interesting first-party releases.

I take it as a bit of a good thing that the games we want to see most aren't launch titles--yeah, you have to wait, but it's better than rushing them

With DLC and patches and all that crap it seems like no one but Nintendo actually finishes their games before they release them anymore

Furthermore, why do you care about launch titles? Why are you buying a 3DS before the first hardware revision (featuring sweeping improvements and a reduction in size) hits stores? Haven't you people learned anything from this console generation (PS3 notwithstanding)?

To the first DS model's credit, it didn't have as many widespread problems as the Lite seemed to--broken shoulder buttons and hinges...

It's still pretty sad that the 3DS is the second Nintendo console ever to not even slightly have a Mario game at launch (the first being the Pokemon mini, so yeah). Even the Wii at least had some Mario games on the Virtual Console at launch (and it also had a brand-new Zelda game).

Nintendo clearly wasn't planning on putting this out before November 2011, before it leaked and shareholders got ****y about slightly lower sales figures.

My Lite never gave me any trouble in the years I had it.  I even dropped it on a tile floor once and the worst it got was a crack in the outer casing.

It's a matter of tradition: A Nintendo console without a Mario launch title is like an AC/DC album devoid of any sexually-suggestive song names.

Well, after seeing the launch title list, I feel much less obligated to get the 3DS as close to release as possible.  I'm still interested as to how that Paper Mario'll pan out, probably more so than I am about "Super Mario 3DS", but I guess I'll have to wait a while to find out anyway.

Is there a way to play our games while the 3DS charges?  If not, that's kind of a disappointing step backwards.  Because whenever I'm practically glued to a game on my DS, and the light turns red, I can just plug it in and continue to play.

Looking at my monetary situation, the 3DS' launch titles, and its battery life, I think I'll wait for the next model.
