    "R4itt is SLOT-1 flash card for NDS console series .It is produced by the factories of Original R4 and Original Dstt.It is upgrade versions of R4 and Dstt with multi-media features which can support SDHC and run most games and homebrews. It has widely been owned by many NDS player users."

    I just had to post this [​IMG] The clone makers are busy these days and its not even closing in for christmas.
    Seems to me the clone makers are getting more and more aggressive, now they include even more shit on their homepage, and they are not hiding the fact that their cloning the DSTTi.
    Notice also the colourful boxes and the inclusion of Mario, items like this is easy to trick kids with, they think this must be the ultimate cart when they see this in the shop, and even parents with low technical interest may be fooled.

    So let me get this straight...

    They are marketing a clone of a clone with a clone combined with DSi Support?
    I wonder what happened to advertising compatibility and features.


    EDIT:Holy crap, is that site illegally hosting movies and games?

    Love it how their site has a contact us page with an e-mail which they conveniently forgot to specify.

    straight from their site:

    i consider the r4i-rts from m3 is a clone
    so altogether i have 7 r4s
    6 clones and 1 original [​IMG]

    i don't have the most because i know someone from GBAtemp basically owns almost all r4s [​IMG]

    How Many !!!!!... Come on surely you're not that stupid.... Oh !!! unless you actually 'test' these for a reason... like development for R4 firmware or something

    Out of curiosity - Has anyone ever done a 'R4 Clone list' ???
    These I know about
    Not a complate list I'm sure
    & while Googling came across this picture
    Warning It's a large picture

    EDIT: Just clicked that link above to PriceAngel - boy have I missed a few clones in my list

    You're not gonna mean the 'R4iTT DSi 3D Upgrade' thing... That's like.... A clone of a clone of a clone of a clone of a clone..... You've gotta be pretty stupid to fall for that...
    EDIT: Hello no, I just looked around the site and the f**king card is purple [​IMG]

    Dude it has 3D support even before the 3DS is out. How could you not fall for it?

    It's clearly superior since it's both purple AND has 3DS support

    Only an idiot would buy that. The box art looks so cheap, I could shit better Photoshops than that.


    Serious tactical facepalm.

    They should of just made it look like the Wii box. At the very least, it's easy to photoshop, and makes people go "hurr durr i haz a wii."

    On a related note, I when I hit up Chinatown, I'll keep a look out for one of these. I've seen the R4i and the DSTT everywhere these.
