    If it can be dumped, it will be. They don't care if it's useful or not, they just want everything they can get.

    I think you can get this one for free on your Wii through the Nintendo Channel [​IMG]

    Probably no one was able to get a hold of the demo until now. Come to think of it, I'm surprised someone did manage to get a hold of this. Must work for Target or Gamestop.

    Heh, that seems to be the case.

    Getting these carts aren't easy, I wouldn't think.
    Nintendo representatives come in and out the store to pick up these demos and replace them with newer demos every so often...you've gotta have 1337 sources to get a hold of one of these demos (or you can be some random guy who works at GameStop) [​IMG]

    They're mainly just for collection purposes, I think.

    Yeah, and the dumper confirms that. Sir VG has also redumped many improper GBA roms.

    I hope some dumper will be able to obtain DS Download Station 5 some day... I also keep wondering about those European versions of the DS Download Station.

    Yeah I g uess they would be hard to come by and would be worth quite a lot of money in the future, because its so rare.. But to download and put it on a flashcart.. meh [​IMG]

    I actually like these, as it lets my kids try games without illegally copying them (okay, so this is illegal, too, but you know what I mean). I have M3DS Reals for them, but only to back up stuff we have/let them both play a game with their own saves or at the same time/replace cartridges they've lost.

    I won't claim to be clean on my OWN cart, but I'd like them to at least start out honest (also, I don't need them telling their friends at school how "my daddy downloads all the games we want, ever"). I do let them try stuff before they buy it, though, with birthday money or whatever, so I can keep them away from shovelware - nice to have real limited demos for that, rather than explaining why I have to take the game away after 15 minutes. Oh, and they love Stafi/Starfy and the Panda game. [​IMG]

    Nintendo channel rotates DS games. I frankly don't agree with the logic on that - wouldn't more demos available = more sales of those games?
