    We all know from where they're pulling this statistics, don't we? [​IMG] Seriously... if 90% of America's DS owners use the R4 to pirate game, then the other 10% uses a CycloDS to pirate games... or this statistics don't represent reality.

    How many percent of the DS owners it really is?
    Because everyone I know with a DS already has heard rumors of flashcarts.
    They usually don't know exactly what they are, but they know it exists...

    So, God forbid any actual research, eh? Are you sure this isn't a Fox News bulletin?

    I think they meant to say that 90% of the people I know [​IMG] (but then again, how do they know who I am? [​IMG] )

    I would say 30% at maximum, probably around 15-20%

    Sounds entirely inaccurate.

    I'd say 5 - 10 % at most. [​IMG]

    That much?
    I can't stop thinking that we are ruining the NDS market, resulting in less confidence of the developers to bring out a game on the NDS.
    Except maybe for the eternal Brain Training clones, but who needs those games [​IMG]

    Naw, I know a lot of DS owners, and I am the only one with an R4.

    Plus, I woulnt have bought my DS if it wernt for R4.

    So in a way they are making nintendo money.

    Same goes for PSP, who the hell buys PSP games w/ all the custom firmware available even for the PSP Slim. Piracy can't be stopped, it can only be slowed down. I know a lot of people in my area (NYC) that have an R4 actually...its pretty commonplace around here LMAO.

    i guess they wanted to say that 90% of pirates use an R4, but still that sounds like they made it up.

    anyway: *sings* A pirate I was meant to be! Trim the sails and roam the sea!....

    ARR!

    Soooo, according to the NPD group nintendo has sold 17.65 million nintendo ds's in the US. So 15.89 million of those are being used with an R4. R4's makers must be rich. [​IMG]

    More accurate would be saying "90% of DS or GBA owners on GBAtemp are pirates", maybe?

    And kids are listening to Marilyn Manson, playing Grand Theft Auto, and subsequently kill people.

    Honestly, I know a lot of DS owners, and I don't know anyone who has even rudimentary knowledge of the flash hardware scene.

    ELSPA have said they never commented on this and would never comment on anything outside the UK.
