Nintendo are warning against modifying or hacking 3DS systems lets the handheld become “unplayable.”
The warning that is printed on the back of 3DS game boxes states that “This product contains technical protection measures. Any unauthorised technical modification to your Nintendo 3DS system or the use of an unauthorised device with your system may render this game and / or your system unplayable.”
Will Nintendo go as far as to brick handhelds that they suspect to be running modified and hacked firmware? Nintendo have certainly been outspoken regarding the increased anti-piracy features of the 3DS, but only time will tell how extreme these new measures will be.
