Nintendo's new handheld system still faces fierce competition from its own other handheld system.
A video game trade group recently published a report saying four games are pirated for every one that's sold, and Sony has a veritable task force working to combat what it feels is the continued increase in video game privacy.
It's always fun to live in fear of lawsuits. Like every company, Nintendo wants to make sure it has all its bases covered, and its much-publicized warnings about the upcoming 3DS handheld is starting to have an effect.

Nintendo's next handheld system, the first ever portable 3D gaming platform, will be hitting store shelves in six months as the first new system to come out in more than four years.
