    That's so silly.
    Nintendo are rich enough. Wouldn't a ban be good enough for them? :/

    Lol it's so sad that such a large company is suing for a measly $500,000.

    Nintendo from Australia is really taking actions recently
    For making a single person pay 1.5M, and now a company 0.5M (which is quite unreasonable since a company can usually pay more than a single person)


    also, the picture is broken

    I've seen spam links to an R4 reseller on another forum.
    One of the most humourous things on the site is "Consult an R4 expert" with a stock image for a smiling guy.

    They DO care about the other flashcarts, but noobs only buy R4's, so when they get those off the market the noobs are gone and piracy might decrease.

    rupeeclock... one of the best images in a long time
    its not about the money, its to scare ppl not to buy the R4 cuz its impossible to stop the massive number of R4 carts and variations

    It happens all the time. There was the guy who imported shit loads of R4's in the UK not too long ago and he got sued out the butt hole. Again, it's only sellers (aka bulk buyers) who get targeted. Even then, R4's are pretty much dead.

    R4's are the shit. Seriously. Look at how many people still buy them. If you ask someone if they know what a flashcard is, they'll most likely say 'Oh, you mean a R4?'

    What I meant was, if they know anything about the DS and hacking.
