Rumor. It's possible, but the big N likes having games stay on carts, so it probably won't happen.

Pirating is already so easy on the DS.

There has got to be a hundred different versions of ROM Carts out there.

Hopefully the games we can install on our 3DSes are Game Boy games from a Virtual Console for GBC and GBA.

Actually it might make piracy more difficult. There is no way, if (and that's a big if) this is true, Nintendo would allow people to simply rent and install games. They would have to implement some sort of activation key stored on the eprom or something. You could be promoted to create a unique password upon installing it which will then be encrypted with the activiation key, which can only be done once.

From that point on, only you and you alone can install the game. It would also totally eliminate re-sales, or at least reduce their profitability considerably.

It does have a feature to install but most likely a portion of it to run the tag wire. Explained in one of these videos. (forgot which one)
