    I'm going to bite the bullet and buy an R4 at a shop for $64.99 US. Yeah, I know it's a crazy mark-up, but I need it now and all the major online shops are out of stock.

    My question is, how should I inspect the package to make sure everything is okay? If I insert the R4 into my DS without loading any firmware (I don't have a MicroSD card yet) can I tell if the R4 is working properly? Thanks in advance.

    it'll say something like, micro SD not inserted, but i dunno if that guarantees complete integrity.

    The packaging isn't entirely professional. It's good for a flash cart though.

    The poster above me has the right idea.


    So do you. It's terrible at that price but if you need it for X-mas then you need it.
    What kind of shop did you find it at? Maybe I should check out chinatown...

    lol you should see the place where I live. A store sells it for $100 Canadian currency. Thing is, they actually sell quite a lot because they're the only store that has it around the area and the people doesn't know where to buy these things.
