    Now this is priceless. Nintendo has made a sub-website that is not even linkable via their own website[as far as I know], as if they where trying to keep it a secret. This website has pictures of the R4DS and OUTDATED DS Flashcards.

    Nintendo has now dedicated an independent website to fight pirates from pirating Nintendo software.
    The website has links where users can report to Nintendo of piracy. If you are a total dee-bag then you sure as heck would do this. The website has detailed information on how to spot pirated software in the form of imitator cartridges and disks.
    Here is a quote from the website:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Some other sources they failed to mention are e-bay and Creg's List[if I spelled that correctly]

    The website also has images so users can tell the difference between fake and authentic Nintendo Software and Hardware.
    The images found on the website range from flashkits & modchips to Those 60-in-1 controllers that you see at the mall with crap copies of Super Mario Bros on them.

    The website alone is something to check out.
    The website link is; http://ap.nintendo.com/index.jsp

    Im sure there was already a topic about this,

    anyways this is actually quite funny coz the flash carts they have are really old [​IMG] ( well cept for the r4 but thts still kinda old )

    Plus seeing as it not advertised anywhere no one is going to no about it so its kinda pointless

    Lets just leave nintendo to it

    That is what I am hoping will happen.
    Their little website will be burried alive by everything else on the internet.

    Believe it or not, but this was the 7th result on the Google Search for "4341 ds antipiricy check"

    Don't underestimate the power of the Big N. I can see douches who feel self-rightous going to report to Nintendo about other flashcards like the CycloDS, Acekard 2, and all the others. Let's see if Nintendo got the balls to do something about it.

    It's "Craigslist", BTW.

    I love how they specifically mention Asian websites. I also love how they forgot about the new side-loading flashcarts that are even harder to spot.

    that place
    [​IMG] They only have R4 and a Passcard on the DS page.
    Kinda strange how they have a CycloWiz on there, but no CycloDS.

    ...Don't worry, I won't report the CycloDS.

    I remember seeing this site a while ago; if everyone reports all the dead carts, then that'll keep them looking, plus it's possible that N gets all the rubbish off and makes getting good carts easier... [​IMG]

    If you actually look in their manual, they have pretty much every single flashcart. I don't think I saw the M3, though...
