and what they don't tell you is the clue in this...

the nintendo channel on the 3ds here in the u.s is a mass marketing advertisement application it picks up ads from mcdonalds and burger king and other fast food chains when you go there to give you information on games you can purchase at your local game store what i find is funny it is all it does nothing more nothing less a worthless feature what sucks even more for 3ds owners that the nintendo channel happens to log what hotspot you connected to to nintendo so if they spy a illegal flash cart kiss your wifi goodbye no thank you hotspots
