    Hi I purchased this about a month ago and it finally arrived but now that I have taken it out of the box it looks fake because under the stickers there is 2 squares sticking out under the sticker it looks really cheap and the box and manual and usb dont look like online pictures. can some one tell me if I have a fake or not so i can complain to the company i got it from.

    Why don't you try it yourself ?

    If the SCDS2 firmware works, It's real !

    Genuine.

    There is no SCDS2 clone as of today.

    The two squares sticking out are the extra hardware for running certain homebrew. My packaging looked just like that so I'm gonna say it's legit.

    As mentioned - try it out with the official firmware & if it work It's OK

    Looking at the photos they look similar to my DSTwo when I first got them... (If I remember right) although the manual look different

    UPDATE: - Now that I'm back home - I can tell you MY DSTwo has the following

    Looking at the sticker....
    Top left corner - about 13mm square is a 'raised' portion of the sticker, followed by a small 'dip' (~3mm) there then seems to be a further 'raised sticker' bit about 8mm (wide) x 12mm.
    The bottom edge of this rectangular raised part seems to be in level with the other raised part of the sticker

    BELOW this edge, near the middle of the card, is a another 'dip' of 12mm (wide) x 8mm

    If you're brave enough to OPEN your DSTwo - it should look like this
    Warning BIG picture
