    I felt an indentation on the sticker and peeled it back off my edge and noticed it was placed directly over the chip.

    Is this an indication of a fake Edge (like a fake R4?) or are all the edge Ds like this?

    I havent heard of Fake Edge DS but what do you all think?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the replies!

    I didn't know some cards do that, my only previous experience is with the R4 in which sticker over the chip means its a definite fake.

    Glad to hear that mine is legit! Thanks !

    Uhm yeah.

    The EDGE has no fakes as of now.

    And if you go read the review for the EDGE under GBAtemp Reviews, they show you that if you peel of the sticker, it reveals a chip.

    EDIT: Nice hi-res pictures by the way, very nice camera.

    heh hope I didn't jinx it for Anyone, since there are no Fakes lets hope it stays that way...I hate peeling stickers off Flashcarts!!!

    Thanks for the comp on the pictures....nothing special with the camera...its an older Sony DSC-w1...I think the trick to clean shots it sjust keeping it on 'macro' for those small close ups!

    Thanks for the input all I feel better about my edge now!

    Both EZ-V and EZ-Pass III do that so it's something very common.
