Thanks. Got it for $5.59 with GCU. I added in Toad Tracker for store picked to get free shipping. I don't plan to return the game but I wonder if I did would they charge the $3 for shipping.

As for the game I'm kind of interested in homebrew. I'm a guy who never touches emulators and buys Virtual Console games.

I got some homebrew for the DS for my cousins in India so they could use the DS for more stuff and was very impressed with the apps. There was of course Moon Shell the media player and Colors!. There also was a complete bible and offline Wikipedia viewer.

Just in case I want a copy to see what people do with 3DS and 3D.

I do really hope there's no piracy. Retail are already struggling as is.

My 3DS is US region, but is a local set by the local (I'm Singaporean) official distributor, so the system ID is something that is specific to my region. Would Nintendo CS still help me? Also, I'm afraid that they will cancel my CN account.

Wait. Does this mean the homebrew/regionfree/piracy is bottlenecked by the amount of games in circulation? I don't think a reprint will be made of these games, as Nintendo will probably block it or force a patched version to be printed.

I could not be 100% certain but if there is a official distributor they should be help because it's legit. Unlink the CN account before you call would be good thing to do also.

I actually need to call Nintendo CS, I can ask them about your situation and post back if you want, I will call when the working hour start at 6AM PST(2AM PST now).

Yep.

Essentially, this homebrew channel is pretty much useless because of that - unless another exploit is found.

Right now yes, I'd imagine people will be looking at getting Homebrew running without the cart though once the exploit is released

Though the set itself is legit, all the digital games come from the the US (after NNID) and Brazil (before NNID) as my country has no eshop. Which obviously is against T&C.

Thus, I am rather hesitant to buy anything digitally that can be bought by retail. It would be great if you can ask CN about it.

Good for exploits (no-one to patch, Nintendo would have to do it) - but it'll definitely be pulled from JPN eshop.

A firmware update will eventually fix it.
Here's hoping we can manually update via homebrew to keep this for rest of 3DS life

Can the method of attack be patched? smea thinks not but I'm guessing it is a QR code so one option open to Nintendo is to disable the camera when the game is running.

The game itself is pointless to patch as you can just delete the patch. The other option Nintendo can do is completely blacklist the game but Ubisoft and customers could complain. That is a very extreme option though.

I wonder if they could look for exploit files on the SD card and delete them upon detection (twilight hack block does this). From what I recall the 3DS gets very grumpy if you remove or insert SD cards while the system is on.

Damn.

When GAME get really low on stock the site starts behaving strange and/or their site doesn't update stock very quickly. This usually results in it coming in and out of stock a few times (this may be due to payment failing). However I've had orders canceled in such circumstances before (as in order while in stock but it gets canceled when someone after me gets theirs).

Depends who was mainly buying it. If it is people wanting to use homebrew they will hold onto it. If it is scalpers they will get fed up of looking at the copies and lower the price somewhat until you hit that threshold of people prepared to buy.

Homebrew threads generally don't allow derailments about piracy to start.

There tends to be different levels of access on consoles nowadays (User Mode, Kernel Mode etc). Kernel Mode would give complete access to the system and allow Piracy but User Mode wouldn't.

Bear in mind I don't know if this is the case here

I wonder how long it'll take before the game is completely unavailable. It's quite a low-key release, so I don't expect that Ubisoft ever shipped a lot of copies to begin with. It wouldn't surprise me if the game will be sold for insane prices in just a few days.
