Are you fully sure of it? if so, it's the decryption handled by the console or by the same game? just a day or two after the Metroid release there was already a pic of it with a modified message... is it because Metroid isn't encrypted... or because of other thing? I'm curious about this theme, it would make some people to shut up for a while heh.
