    The Metro is quite frankly full of **** for the most part. But if true, it's not nice to hold so much data about users.

    iTune genuine on 3DS.

    I think it's good idea ... if it's op-in option.

    I remember reading another site wanting to send card board bricks to Nintendo because of this and several other issues.

    ehhhh.... Nintendo doesn't own jack sh**. They can't own your messages, because that's an invasion of privacy. And they certainly can't own your personal details.... that just BS and identity theft.

    :rolleyes:

    Intellectual property rights aren't a master key to owning everything under sun that has a 0 and 1.

    The government certainly doesn't own you just because you have a citizenship, driver license, health card, SIN and a record in their database. They only own the licensing rights, not the the actual information.

    Whats going to happen in the future when everything is digitized? Companies are going to own my thought patterns because I'm using their Electroencephalography (EEG) game controller? Bullshit.

    i thought this issue was brought up at one time when it was said that nintendo had the right to brick your system with a firmware update. i couple of months ago. or was that with the wii?

    No they say that using flash card might brick your device. this kind of warning is also on psp & custom firmware

    We still own our consoles???? news to me. Last I heard all it took was a EULA thingy to invalidate all our ownership of consoles. All I can say is that I hope consumers are more united in saying "F*CK YOU!" to any company that has such sneaky practices... let's hope that ninty owners aren't as fanatical as the sony zealots, cause it can only get worst if that's the case.
