    for those of you guys that were like me a week ago on deciding about getting an r4 heres some info on how my expirience went.

    First since im in the USA i wanted a USA shipper. I chose www.nxpgame.com. The r4 cost 39.99 + 5.50 shipping. I got my r4 from this vendor in 3 days time!! So i was very happy. I ordered me memory stick from newegg for 20 dollars , 2 gig Kingston JPN version.



    So far so good!! every rom ive thrown at it has worked fine so far! now to test out DPG

    Awesome. Worms needs ARM7, if that's one of the games you didn't try yet.

    I paid $5.50 for the shipping of my R4 and it took almost 3 weeks!

    You're sure it was 3 days, right?

    Congrats on getting your R4 by the way.

    Eh, I ordered mines off of an Amazon dealer when it was still cheap... and he even gave me a free MicroSD with it for a grand total of... $42 + $4 shipping. It arrived within a week.
