    Well, I recently emailed US flashcart seller SimplyMods about a completely irrelevant matter, but the response I got was shocking. I hope that it's a way to inform you guys but SimplyMods is closing down.

    From what I got out of their email, they're really concerned with Nintendo's flashcart piracy combat system, and they will be closing down within a month or so. The direct email I got is below, and I quote them:

    I really like them, they're a nice group that deals in the United States with an affordable price. I'd really hate to see them go. [​IMG] Thanks to tk_saturn for recommending me to submit this as news. [​IMG]

    Was there a reason to post two topics?

    That really sucks... Another one bites the dust, I suppose, they were a good, efficient site, though. This pains me to see them go down.

    You're basically posting a large advertisement for the "going out of business sale" of one of Shoptemp's competitors.

    This is not very good
    But when you get a job like this.
    You have to expect things like this

    I sort of realized that when I emailed them about their stock of Acekard 2i's and they said that they would no longer sell them because of import issues. So do you think other stores will follow suit?

    I really hope RealHotStuff isn't going along with them, and considering there partner companies, I think that's the case [​IMG]

    If it's illegal to import modchips into the US, it's only a matter of time before the same applies to flashcarts.

    RHS had 299 modschips seized once http://www.realhotstuff.com/letter.pdf

    Perhaps SimplyMods had a shipment confiscated which put the wind up them?

    Here in the UK, the 2 Acekard's I received from 7DayShop where labeled as photography accessories on the customs form with a big "Photography equipment, do not X-Ray" on the package. So retailers must be worried.

    You also have to wonder if what happened in the Netherlands had any effect on their decision as well.
