    Lol.
    iTouch DS
    $44,95(CAD)
    $34,95(CAD)

    Amazing what they're charging. It's not really a scam, though.

    The Australian $ is pretty shit at the moment keep in mind, try switching the currency to something like USD when browsing OzModChips and then you will see my point. Though they are over charging around $30 for the microSD when it should be around $15-$20

    This site is NOT A SCAM

    I ordered from them a few times and received everything like advertised.

    Price are higher then other site, sure, but they offer an excellent service

    If it costs that much more to buy from them than any other site, it's a scam, plain and simple.

    Yeah, this place isn't a scam just ripping people off. I've seen a DSTT bundled with a 4gb microSDHC go for $114.

    they didn't trick you or anyone else to purchase
    if any of us buy something from them is because we are willing to pay for it [​IMG]
