YouTube video shows R4 use on 3DS 

3Ds has only been on sale in Japan since yesterday, and supposedly it has already been "hacked" to use R4 cards.

According to a tipster of D'toid's, a YouTube video has been posted showing an R4 card running on the new handhled.

Granted, this means only older DS games can be backed up with the card, while the 3DS side of things is still safe. For now.

So far, 3DS' software has only been bypassed to allow for old DS R4 cards, but it will probably only be a matter of time before the entire thing is "hacked" wide open.

Hopefully, this is the last bit of hacking news we'll post for you today.
