    Out of curiosity, I was wondering how some of these roms reach our hands a few days before the country's actual release date. Not complaining or anything, I loves it, but I just wanted to know how we get them, and a big hug to anyone who works behind the scenes to deliver them to the DS community. [​IMG]

    Simple. Video Game stores get these games up to 1.5-2 weeks early. Like the one i work for, we sold our entire Guitar Hero 2 inventory (25) before street date. So its really not hard for people to get ahold of stuff a few weeks early. Now say month early, that is prob for someone who has a relative working for either a distrobution company or nintendo itself.

    I am going to jump right in and clarify that I am pretty sure he is not asking for the roms, only how the games get dumped so early.(Edit: although now it looks like that is pretty obvious so disregard) I am unsure of the exact methods but I am pretty sure they come from folks in the industry. You know, works at a EB Games or maybe for the developer or something like that. A mole. [​IMG]

    This response has no relevance to this topic, but I have got to say that is the most awesome avatar I have ever seen.
