That’s right. Just like the PSP, someone has designed a virus for the Nintendo DS. Purportedly the virus makes the Nintendo DS as useful as a ‘paperweight’.

The virus, DSBrick, is disguised as a Hentai viewer, but instead flashes part of the firmware and makes the device inoperable. Fortunately, the virus comes in a ROM format, and it can only be ran on modified Nintendo DSes.

Is anyone else starting to get the feeling that these viruses may have been designed by someone who doesn’t want people to modify their portable game systems? Hmmmmmmm, who could that be?
