    hello guys, I want to buy some NDS games, I discovered this store in aliexpress, sell cheap DS games around 15 bucks, but I'm wondering if anyone can tell whether it's bootleg or original. well I'm assuming they could be original because they might be adjusted to chinese price, but I could be wrong. back then when I wanted to buy a cartridge in my home country (indonesia) the seller said it's "semi original" whatever that means, I declined though and preferred to buy used games or discounted items in play-asia.

    If it ships from Taiwan, Hong Kong, or China, assume it's fake unless it's actually the iQue version of a game (and even then...). Notice that the games use a mix of American and European age ratings, and that the Pokemon games in the GBA section have non-metallic labels and are sold in bulk. (And just look at that Mother 3 cartridge!)
