The 3DS just went on sale in Japan yesterday and we already have the first crack in the armor. The infamous R4 cartridge that allows the play of homebrew, backed-up (legitimate), and pirated copies of DS game has a working solution already. Now the 3DS games have not been cracked…yet. Like with all forms of DRM it is only a matter of time before someone finds a way in. But since they’ve already broken the security enough for the R4 it probably wont be much longer until a 3DS version is available.
