Recently, hackers found an exploit which allowed them to pirate games on the 3DS, even with the newest update. Hackers were found playing builds of Majora’s Mask 3D illegally. Nintendo has begun to ban pirates who have pirated on their 3DS handhelds.

\”Users in multiple countries have been getting error 002-0102, which normally means an internet connectivity problem. However, after contacting Nintendo, multiple users have confirmed that the CS says its a ban. They offer no further information at this time, and can not overturn it. As of now, there is no solid evidence that it is a NNID ban, and most conjecture/circumstance points to a MAC/SN ban. Users that are banned can still enter the eShop and purchase games, and download updates. They can not go online within any game or use their friends list. They also can not use ANY application that requires online connectivity, including Pokemon Bank, YouTube, and Netflix. However, the Web Browser DOES still work.\”

Hackers have no idea how Nintendo is finding out who has been pirating games. Nevertheless, Nintendo Enthusiast strictly condemns the use of piracy on the 3DS and encourages all its users to avoid doing so in the future.
