Planning on getting your games free and illegally? Well remember when Nintendo said they have a hack proof and sophisticated system to combat you pirates? Well Nintendo is now looking into implementing an automated firmware update system for 3DS, as confirmed by CEO Satoru Iwata during an investors briefing on Wednesday. During a Q&A session at the briefing, an attendee asked if Nintendo would be implementing anti-piracy measures via the internet. Iwata Replied with "As part of the functionality of SpotPass, we're looking into having automatic system updates via the internet." While the question had been just about piracy, Iwata added that this system wouldn't just for preventing piracy. Nintendo is hoping to also get new functionality onto 3DS systems via the update. Past firmware update methods have required that the player to manually initiate the update. In Nintendo's experience, said Iwata, players did not do this very much. 3DS will also have a system in place for updating the firmware through package software itself. Said Iwata, "We believed this to be doable because the usable ROM size for the 3DS would become much larger." Iwata insisted that for both types of firmware updates, piracy prevention is secondary to offering new functionality to owners.
