    i heard it was a case of increase the price by 10 dollars or they wouldnt get any more !

    still they are cheap enough even with the forced price increase .

    p.s. im lucky i bought mine when they were 31 dollars .

    DealExtreme seems kind of shady after what happened to a friend of mine recently...

    A friend of mine ordered an R4 from them on July 30th, received an email about a week later (August 8th I believe) stating that they were out of stock, and to wait a few days..so she did. She waited until THREE days ago (that's around 3 weeks after the order date) when they emailed her and said that the factory was suspending production, and so they canceled her order.

    ...and yesterday they got them back in stock.
    For $10 more.

    She was really looking forward to getting it because she's leaving the country in a week and wanted the R4 to keep her busy on the plane and such. Even if she wanted to order another one from them (and I have a feeling she might not order from them ever again anyway) she wouldn't be around to receive the order, since they usually take about 2 weeks to get here.

    As if this all didn't seem messed up enough, I ordered an R4 the day after her (the 31st) and maybe 2 or so days before they emailed her saying that they were canceling her order, they emailed me telling me that mine was shipped.

    [​IMG] Glad I got mines before the recent price increases.

    ~I was going to order from Dealextreme (Cheapest Deal Evar), but I saw that it was Out of Stock. Now it's 10$ More.

    Thats why I decided to get mines at Gameyeeeah (=P) Only took 14 days to get to my house. (Shoots self in head) Thats pretty long but not as long as Dealextreme AFAIK.

    Someone really needs to start cloning R4s... forcing a dealer to raise price and stop selling a cheaper version of that card isn't very nice, IMHO.

    The fakes are just N-Card clones with a R4 sticker slapped on them.

    DX kinda killed everyones expectations...

    like everyone waits for like a month... because there WERE the cheapest.. then suddenly when they do get stock back. it cost more than Gameyeeah, which we coulda ordered like anytime we want.

    DX has little control over what their providers do. If their provider says no more R4s are coming, then their only action is to cancel the orders.

    that's the problem but they should complain that the customers are not giving in as the product is too expensive so permission to change price to a maximum of 50$
