    ..However, when I did, I wasn't aware of the fact that clones are more common than the actual "originals" anymore... Yes, I looked through the forums.. most topics mentioning this particular website (That I found anyways..) were from 2008, etc..

    What are the chances of my having gotten a "real" one from there? That can support the latest Wood R4, newest games, etc.

    Thanks in advance!

    The chances of it being an original R4... None.

    The chance of it running Wood... depends on on which R4 you brought.

    zero chance of a real R4

    If you want to run wood, just buy the one from shoptemp..it's just $6

    Yeah, there's no way to tell until it gets here for something specific like that. It's the regular R4, at least, not the SDHC, R4i, Gold, etc, etc. Although, what website / cart would you suggest? If this doesn't work, I'll have to go with something else..

    If it's the $8.50 R4 than I'm sure wood will work, if it was the other R4 than it won't

    I'm not entirely sure, but I'll hold off on buying another one until this gets here, I'm hoping it works though. (Obviously... [​IMG] )

    They all seem the same to me. I got the 14.50 one, I don't have a Micro SD card so I got the bundle.

    ^This one, correct? If so, there's a high chance it'll run Wood.
