    I heard so, sure look at Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. I hope they don't because I bought every flashcart so it would be a big waste. [​IMG]

    I hope they are, we've had it too good and too easy for too long, at least this way things will be more interesting.

    R4 was nice to me for a long time. I like it.
    But I had to change it for a Acekard when I changed my old DS for a DSi.

    Back to the topic, It seems Idolmaster is also protected. It is happening a lot now.
    I tought only Square Enix dit tis, but the others liked the idea.
    We may be in for a hard time from here on now.

    uh, no.
    You're picking examples that are completely biased, so you can't say all.
    Thats just the simple logic.

    Also, we've actually got around every piracy protection technique that has been thrown at us. Usually its the same kind of thing.

    Well it's pretty sad for Nintendo, because there are only gonna be a few more games to have their new uber piracy protection (unless they license it to all third-party game publishers).
    If Golden Sun DS can't be played on a flash cart, then I'm gonna RAAAAAGE. [​IMG]
