    Silly Nintendo, if only you put as much effort into marketing the Wii U as you do into advertising R4 cards.

    What's the point of this thread? Nintendo's anti-piracy page exists since ages.

    That's part of the amusement; Nintendo hasn't updated it in many a moon.

    I was going to say, that looks pretty outdated if you ask me.

    The only thing looking at this page tells me is that if you thought the cards look (read: are) cheap now they were even worse back then. I think I remember finding this page about two years ago looking the same as it is now, so yeah... Nintendo doesn't take a lot of time to advertise the banes of their existence unless it's sold in Japan.

    "Passme device"

    Holy crap, that's a really old device. I had that sticking out of my old DS phat for weeks before I just decided to just use the Flashme firmware.

    You think that's outdated, look at Retro's site.

    According to archive.org, the earliest cache of the page (Februrary 12th, 2008) is the same page as it is today, no different flash carts or anything. So unless something is up with the archives, the page hasn't been updated since it first went up.

    Although on the left you can click to see photos of counterfeit items for older consoles and handhelds like the gameboy, though so far all images I've seen are broken:

    I think their page is actually dangerous and non helping. Imagine a fellow nintendo user unaware of GBAtemp will buy some of those outdated flashcarts. He may not get updates!
    They should explain all the differences of R4 clones and add DSTWO for mario's sake!
