    Wow. How would they do that after all the Flashcart HATE and bullshit they post?

    This is a crock of shit. Oh well. I don't see why they advertise a dead cart, anyways.

    (Ok, not dead, just seldom updated).

    They should have properly checked the images provided on the Waterfield website.

    This isn't really Kotaku for anyone willing to spend the 10 seconds to actually use their brain.

    The pictures themselves are from the original website, Waterfield bags. They actually have some nice bags. I still have a my cargo bag I bought 10 years ago!

    But why would anyone need a bag for his games if he has a flash cart?

    I can see that the flashcart is shopped.
    So they probably don't have the flashcart but they still advertise it...

    I'm sure everyone can see that. The point is Kotaku staff never made the effort to check these photos before rolling them out on the site. Then again, they hardly ever make the effort to proofread their articles either.

    Ahahaha! What a brilliant find! Especially if they took these pics in their own studio with their own equipment! XD

    ShinyLatios does not approve of advertising crappy flashcards... they should've advertised AK2i/SCDS2 instead

    Kotaku is a pathetic, pro-corporate, waste of space. The same goes for all of those other so-called "gaming blogs" that are embedded with the capitalists.

    Somewhat on-topic:
    They couldn't just take pictures of their own equipment? They get most of it for free or ahead of everybody else (or both), anyway.
