Nintendo has always treated hacking as a serious matter. While it isn’t incredibly difficult to mod their systems, the company is still looking to make sure their devices aren’t tampered with in the hands of consumers. To ensure this, they’ve now partnered with HackerOne to give money to hackers in exchange for finding unknown security issues within the Nintendo 3DS system.

The reward money ranges from $100 to $20,000, depending on how severe the issue is. The amount will be determined and compensated by Nintendo within four months after fixing the issue. So if you’re confident in your abilities to unlock a 3DS in ways that nobody ever has before, this is definitely a good way to make some extra money. To read more about how you can be paid by Nintendo for being a hacker, check out their official page at HackerOne.

What do you guys think? Is this a good way to make sure the 3DS stays secure? Let us know in the comments below.

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
