Has the Nintendo 3DS been Hacked?

3DS Hacked?

It appears that the Nintendo 3DS has been hacked.  The handheld console staved off piracy for nearly six months, despite millions of enterprising hackers on the case.  Called the “Crown 3DS”, the flash memory card was given a proof of concept video where someone is showing the handheld launching the Splinter Cell 3D ROM using the device, albeit connected to a large board of some type.

Nintendo’s last handheld had a very hard time with piracy, with ease of access to any of the massive lineup of DS games at the click of a button.  As a matter of fact, all gaming handhelds seem to have this problem. PSP also saw massive rates of piracy on its platform.

It will be interesting to see how Sony plans to combat piracy on the PlayStation Vita which launches this December in Japan.
