    I just walked home from my parents', and I saw this black thingy on the pavement. I looked down...

    A GBA cartridge. Yeah great !

    But wait... no label whatsoever... a sticker seal... Definetely not your average Super Mario Advance. Plus, it's black ! Still, the casing looks pretty official, with a genuine "Gameboy Advance" right on top of where the label should be, and a Nintendo logo on the back, complete with "Made in Japan" and part number...

    So I pocket the cart, walk home and of course insert it in my DS Phat. The thing is filled with 99 old games. Mario, Arkanoid, Xevious, Yie R Kung Fu... It might be a flashcart, but it looks more like some pirate cartridge from China. Since I already own a G6 Lite, I tried to read it with the G6 flasher ; Windows recognizes the flasher but cannot read the contents. No FAT system !

    If someone can confirm my guess, or knows this particular cart... I really think it's just a read-only pirate cartridge, but well..

    Still I thought it's a good story to share [​IMG]

    It says :

    Nintendo®
    MODELNO.AGB-002
    PAT.PEND.MADE IN JAPAN

    And on the sticker seal there is this :
    PWP
    (asian mumbo jumbo)

    Exactly ! No I didn't "borrow" it, I really own a G6 [​IMG]
    It really does look like a bunch of plastic to the mundane eye, but I recognized the shape of a GBA cartridge immediately...

    OK I played a bit more with the thing. It's a PocketNES emu complete with 99 roms (I was wondering if all of them were NES). And yeah ! I can save states ! The thing at least has SRAM [​IMG]
