    But is it the R4 only that's illegal? What about the DSTT, like on the sign?

    I think when they say ''R4 cartridges'' or simply ''R4's'', i think they mean Falshcarts.

    Even though i laugh every time they call Flashcarts ''R4 Type Devices''

    Yeh R4 is like our scapegoat lets just leave them to try ann stop them which will take up all their time while we just live our lives with our other flashcarts or the r4s we already have.

    It's all a bit mad. Like Sony trying to ban Blu Ray blank disks and burners in case of pirate games/films.

    Thing is, as per PalmOS - homebrew kept it alive a long time.

    To shut down the routes for Homebrew Nintendo are not only risking losing new programmers (a lot of the best programmers started in bedrooms with own kit) and a valuable fanbase. Yes - there is piracy due to the same tools, but then there is ALWAYS a way that games will be pirated.

    But homebrew has nothing to do with it because nobody buys R4s for homebrew and theres no reason for it to even run pirated games if it was for that so its a flimsy excuse. Piracy isn't a side effect of homebrew being available, homebrew is a side effect of piracy and you make it sound like its the other way around when its obviously not. And the blu-ray comparison is nothing like it because the NDS cart format is not supposed to be an open format.

    Because "R4" is synonymous with DS flashcards. It's a household name. Like all tissues are Kleenex and all photocopiers are Xerox.

    Lol, Nintendo already pwned the R4 team, so instead of going around being R4Busters why not focus on destroying other teams? Although I wouldn't want that to happen!!! Just stating some random fact.
