Great discussion guys! I saw that this one question wasn't answered though...
Hey MercuryEnigma, i've recently acquired the lightsabers and i am pretty shook up about all the talk. How do you know that it really is safe? (some proof would help me relax more) Not that i'm doubting you or defying you, i would much rather prefer that you are right, but i don't want to be ignorant.
The reason that I, and others, see it as safe is because the only way for any issues to arrive would be to...
a) get two differentt DLC/HDLC in the same slot. There are thousands of slots, and the chances of that happening are minimal at most. Plus DsPet would never pick the same slots as himself or Nintendo, and since Nintendo already seems to know about this (we don't know how they are reacting just yet) Nintendo mostly likely will avoid those slots, because Nintendo wouldn't want to cause pain to their money-holding customers. And if Nintendo did do that...A lot of angry customers would be angry.
b) have over 256 DLC/HDLC all together. That is unlikely/ near impossible because Nintendo has only released 2 DLC in the past couple months, and DsPet is only releasing 1 every 2 weeks. Say Nintendo starts pouring out DLC, and makes a new 1 every week, it would take over 2 years to get that high...plus Nintendo would probably stop by then and people wouldn't be playing this game as much...
And sorry if this topic is too "pro-HDLC" but I don't want people panicking over nothing, which many people did after the first 5 hours...>_> --- Name: MercuryE Town: Tengoku ***FC: 2192-1288-6693 Official Chief Justice of Board 261 Supreme Court under the Gigadole Administration

Well from Nintendo's point of view. The game doesn't officially end until 2035. --- "A delayed game is eventually good, but a bad game is bad forever." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I'd be surprised if there was any new HDLC with all the drama that went on for the past few days... >_< --- I am Unshy Guy. Public speaking holds no challenge for me! ~ Unshy Guy

Gracie's "Sold Out" sign and Tom Nook's "Sold Out" sign are hacked items as well, correct? o_o; (You kinda missed them...) --- AC:CF F/C-4683-2258-1018(Katsumii @ Kyoto) SSBB F/C-0989-1471-0986

Oh, and a question:
If someone in your friend's list has hacked DLC, and he/she sends you one via mail across towns, you will be "infected" right? And if so, will you be infected with ONLY that item, or all 3 hacked DLC? (Since the sender might have all 3's data on their file...I don't know! D: ) --- AC:CF F/C-4683-2258-1018(Katsumii @ Kyoto) SSBB F/C-0989-1471-0986
