    Someone (bilco01) has come across a website ndscardsale

    The description for the Acekard is identical to the description that was on DealExtreme, it even has the same:
    This is the same address from which DealExtreme's packages are shipped from.

    This is relevant to my interests.
    Dunno if I should trust it tho.

    Oh elixer, it's some webshop system, downloadable, friend of mine uses it too.
    So look and feel has nothing to do with DX

    I just got my DSi and was considering flashcard for it. What you guys say, M3i Zero or AK2i? I've been always using M3 products so i don't know anything abot other carts.

    damn they sell just about every R4 clone there is [​IMG] wonder how much supercard DSTWO is going to be if they decide to stock it, I also see that there is no cyclo there and perhaps no M3 of any kind (maybe mistaken on the M3 but I can't see any at a glance)

    One of their images looks like they've removed the DealExtreme watermark in Photoshop

    So I would wait for someone else to order from them incase it turns out to be a scam, or order the lowest possible value item off them to see if you acutally receive it.

    I knew it wouldn't be long, DX makes too much money from flashcarts to just give up without a fight.

    Take a look at this http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/www.dealextreme.com There's no way DX are giving up on FlashCarts, it's their number 1 selling item.

    This one might help a little more.

    These are the last carts added to DealExtreme's website
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    They were added to DX's inventory on March the 18th, just 2 days before all flashcarts including workarounds were pulled from DealExtreme's site.

    These look like they might be using the original unwatermarked images:

    Take a look at the domain name records for the three of them - DX & PE both superficially share the same registrar, are registered via the same agent... NCS are registered another way.

    NCS are hosted in the UK according to RIPE.NET's database - DX & PE are both hosted in the US.

    I'd suggect that DX & PE Are related and NCS are trying to look the same to give that appearance of being related.

    Remember, it's not kosher until someone on here actually orders and posts they've received the item.

    If it were me, i'd wait for someone else to order from them incase it's a scam. They have a Valid HTTPS certificate, PayPal says the payment goes to "3C Shop"

    I'm tempted to order a $0.99 tigram screwdriver to find out....

    Seems to me they don't have bulkrate prices ... :S They should also put out some card readers and other stuff too ..

    Yeah, DealExtreme is back! Well... In a sense.
    I was worried that Dealextreme's insanely low prices may have been gone forever.

    Although, doesn't this seem like kind of a lame move? I mean, now that there's a site that sells DS exploitation products exclusively, Nintendo and the other complainers will have more butthurt than ever.

    To me ... the Big N has always "let" their hardware be compatible with 3rd Part cards . It's a marketing technique .... FlashCards = More Hardware Sold = More money ...

    I'm pretty sure a DS Cart costs less than $1 ( think about it ... the most it can hold is about 128mb)
    and they wouldn't care a bit if they sold it or not

    Anyways ... I REALLY HOPE this is dealextreme ... and I REALLY HOPE they put BulkRate prices ...
