3DS Will Receive Automatic Updates

October 1st, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: DSiWare | No Comments »

In order to battle piracy, Nintendo will be pushing firmware updates to the device. The consumer has no choice but to accept them If they want to continue playing new games.

The technology is part of Nintendo’s SoftPass system that will connect with Wi-Fi networks on the go, even while the device is turned off. Nintendo is already making available firmware updates to the DSi to battle privacy, but those are optional and consumers that use R4 cards don’t seem to run them. Nintendo will also be shipping new firmware versions with new games like Sony does with the PSP.
