SCANDAL: Professor Layton DLC Already on Cart

One of the coolest features of the DS puzzle title Professor Layton and the Curious Village are the weekly puzzles that are available through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Every Sunday since the game launched a new puzzle has been made available for those who just can't get enough mathematical and verbal brain teasers. Since the already-out-in-Japan sequel may not arrive Stateside until the Summer or Fall (if it arrives at all), the downloads also serve as the perfect hold-me-over.

As it turns out however, the greatest secret of St. Mystere is that the downloads are all a wicked ruse. The alleged "downloadable puzzles" already reside in the depths of the game's code, awaiting a simple unlock key from that hive of villainy, Nintendo, to allow you to play it. Unbelievable. People shelled out hard earned money for the game and are entitled to every single puzzle it holds. The shame of Nintendo, charging people for...wait a second, these puzzles are free! Who cares if all you're doing is downloading an unlock key?
