This is not going to end well...
Rom sites are shady anyways.
Private Servers ftw
We are Hydra. You cut one of our heads, two more will come back in it's place. you will not silence us!
usenet? Torrents? They can try an fight piracy but wont ever win.
as one goes down, more will come to replace it
No one can other than your internet service provider, who wouldn't anyway to avoid you dropping their service.
Well, as of today, the ROM site I use is still up and running like a well oiled machine. So no panic here. Plus if one ROM site goes down, odds are another one will pop up. It's like a never ending game of Whack-a-Mole.
both of my regulars are still up.
I repeat my comment from there, none of the sites I know have been taken down except for one which has been dead for ages.
Talking about that, there's a big news stroy in the UK today about goverment wanting isp's to cut off anyone caught file sharing.
There really needs to be an ISP that would allow unlimited file sharing and downloading of games, movies, music, and software however, it would be premium cost like $100-$200 a month.
My one regular still works. Why dont they just bribe big ones or something since their stealing profits in the first place. It will be effective and they will get their money back fast.
Yeah, I heard about that in the news. Hopefully TalkTalk will be kind enough to leave me alone...
*checks my regulars*
Nope, they're all still here.
I check here or another site to see when there's a release of something, then I grab a torrent upload of said thing, as I usually can download it faster that way than through a site.
If that ever happens that'll be in 2012...and chances are we'll have a different government, we'll definitely have someone else in charge and even then the EU are against it because its against human rights to ban people from using the internet.
I see this as nothing more than fear mongering. I highly doubt Nintendo is doing anything at all.
This will just be another failed attempt, like they did with the flashcarts.
It's not even that important to post this news. Nothing will happen.
Sites here and there MIGHT close, but it's probably due to lack of releases. I know lots of sites that haven't updated any games in a long time. Some sites don't even have release numbers 1300+ uploaded yet.
Ah well, like others have said, more and more sites will be mirrored of popular sites. So there's no need to worry.
As long as my main one isn't shut down, I'm fine. Though...can Nintendo legally make them give up IP addresses that download the ROMs?
Maybe they should do what Sony did to PSP every week a new update for no reason... Just to block the flashcarts.
