    Nintendo is starting to close down websites that sell Flashcarts as off now. First website they seemed to close is thedsdeals.com

    They even make a new site for the Anti-Piracy campaign.

    It's good they shut down thedsdeals.com. They scam people. As long as they don't close DX, I'm fine [​IMG]

    I bought from Thedsdeals.com once. I bought a R4(Original). It took them 1 week to ship it. It works anyways and the R4 is real. I ordered from them like in December of 2008.

    what the hell does nintendo have to complain about? their sales are as good as (if not better than) ever!

    and about the developers who are suffering, they tend to be the shovelware developers anyways, so who gives a fuck?

    They have no legal grounds to take down flashcart dealers, though. All flashcart sites give a warning to only use the carts for homebrew purposes, not for game piracy. That alone excludes them from liability. There's no way anyone will be able to stop piracy, let alone Nintendo, without some major restriction of freedom.

    Well, you're paying around $60 for a brand new 360 game too.

    First, I love the "stern faced" Mario they put on the site for anti-piracy. I'm pretty sure Black Beard and his pirates are shitting their trousers right now...

    Second, if Nintendo wanted to "combat piracy", why don't they make their systems harder to hack? I mean, you can pirate games from atleast 10 different systems (including Wii and Gamecube) with amateur hacking experience and an SD card. Or, for the DS, you can spend around $30 for a flashcart and a MicroSD card and go crazy with DS games. Same goes for DSi.

    If you actually read it, you would've seen that it said those "are just a few examples of game copying devices that enable users to copy Nintendo games from the Internet."

    On another note, it seems now Nintendo is trying to take over the world and I have a bad feeling they're going to win this round. It's just a very bad premonition...
