Nintendo cracks down on 3DS hackers, blocks illegal methods for downloading games for free

This is certainly important news to cover, but I'm going to do so while trying to remain vague. For quite some time now, 3DS hackers were using a piece of software in combination with a digital ticket in order to download games for free from the 3DS eShop. Thankfully Nintendo has now stepped in and patched this vulnerability, making it impossible for hackers to use this method anymore. Let's hope this puts a permanent end to activity like this.

Thanks to MarioCheated for the heads up!
