    I just read an article stating that capcom has confirmed that they will not publish Ace Attorney investigations: Miles Edgeworth in Europe, due to too many people having an R4 cart.
    The article states that capcom said europe didn't have a market for ds games anymore because too many people have an R4.
    Source (DUTCH)
    Short English article (thanks Hadrian)

    I personally think this is the crappiest reason they could've thought of, since what they say applies to America too. Also, it will only encourage the few people without a flashcart to buy one, so they can play the US version. What also bugs me is that people who don't know shit about flashcarts usually think R4 is the only flashcart.

    Now discuss please.

    EDIT: Sorry for getting some people all angry, so far it's only for the netherlands, belgium and luxembourg.
    EDIT2: CAN A MOD PLEASE CHANGE "EUROPE" IN THE TITLE TO "Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg" ?

    I completely agree, the only way they could have made profit here was by actually releasing the game, which they didn't do now, so the dutch non-pirates as well as capcom are partially fucked.

    So instead of some sales and some piracy they want zero sales and all piracy. That makes no fucking sense.

    I gotta laugh at the R4, it is hated so much by the developers of games but not only that it seems, but also the vast majority of other flashcart users, oh, the price of fame.

    I'm having a good time seeing they think the only flash card is the R4.

    Are you pirating games ?
    No sir, I only own an acekard and a supercard.
    oh ok then, as long as you don't get an R4 :-)

    edit : I'll have to order it on the internet then. mmmmm or no, why would I pay for this if capcom thinks like this. SCREW THEM.

    Gotta love Capcom's way of thinking. The R4 is pretty much dead and most other flash cards have surpassed the R4 in a lot of ways. In what kind of world are they living? A small one, that's for sure.

    My evil plan for that:
    Tape the sd card slot so you can't take the sd card out
    Sell them
    ??????
    More profit than capcom!!!

    I doubt this will happen because:

    1. They will be shooting themselves in the foot, loss of legit sales

    2. They know that it will be widely available on the internet so said countries will still be able to obtain it

    3. This will encourage legit buyers to pirate

    If they don't release it at all, nobody will be able to pirate it [​IMG]

    Ah, whatever, if it gets released in germany/france/uk, we can always just cross the border to buy it or import it [​IMG]

    On the other hand, R4 is to blame, To many ppl have crappy R4's, Capcom knows this,
    Capcom prolly bought a few R4's and came to the conclusion, Sh** What a crappy cart
    It's not fair to run a pirated copy on R4, so no release in BeNeLux (R4 can be freely sold in Netherland (Not Belgium) But let's take Belgium (there more intrested in potatoes and escaped prisoners) to and Luxembourg to)

    If BeNeLux ppl would have bought AK2 or another descent cart, we would have never taken this action!

    Anyway, conclusion is, If we don't release it in 1 country we punish those ppl!
    Other Conclusion: No you don't, you just cheer to them and say, buy a flashcart to play our games!, otherwise you will never be able to play our games.
    Nice try Capcom, You just have said to us, go out and pirate our games if you wanna play it!
    - We don't release our game there, cause you do have (crappy) R4's and you can pirate our games!

    ThX Capcom for letting us play your games almost for free! You just turned about a few million ppl into pirates of your games!

    [EDIT]
    With other words: Only BeNeLux get punished for the Wordlwide usage of R4, BeNeLux is so damned small, it has almost no meaning to punish it.
    If Capcom like to make a stand that get's huge reactions the should have stopped release outside of Japan completly or exclude North America or the UK/Germany and France
    Anyway, If this gets taken to the European Court, i bet there's a high change of Capcom has to release the game in the end (but who would bet his money on that and invest in that, not me)
    This is discrimination, and still not allowed in court!
