    If you buy it and then "discover" the games are pirated you might be able to get a refund and keep it. Fake items are not allowed to be sold and if they are then PayPal gives you a refund on the condition that you destroy it. This might apply to pirated material also.

    And it's a piece of piss to install Wii homebrew and stuff (nearly as easy as the PSP), so that makes it even more of a scam.

    new 2ds xls with CFW and pre-loaded pirated games seem to be all the rage on ebay these days. I'm reporting them as I see them, mainly because of the insane markup ($80-$100).

    I'm sure they're selling lots of these: from a grandparent-buying-a-gift perspective, it's a good deal to get that many games "included" with the system.

    You could also try calling up Nintendo and reporting them there. I did that to one seller that was listing one of two a day. A week later there were no more listing. I hope he got in trouble :-)

    great idea, it hadn't occurred to me but that's probably the most effective way. I'm sure they have a team of scary-sounding fly-squashers. whenever I report individual listings, it generally gets taken down, but the same user is back the next day with the exact same listing :smh:

    Well that is because with Ebay they only have to do so much work, if you report it and it is in fact illegal they must take it down, how long that takes is up to them, and they don't have to keep an eye if it gets re-posted.. Since it is a potential sale they want it to sell.. But since it ill still illegal they must take some form of basic action to keep Nintnedho happy..

    would you guys pay more for a system that was hardmodded to use the other abxy button layout? (obviously not double, but just a small increase.)
