    And Earns $250k In 24 Hours From It!
    SB_Pirate.jpg

    Less than 48 hours ago, the famous hip-hop artist called 'Soulija Boy' launches his own branded 'Video Gaming Consoles' and in less than 24 hours earns over $250k from the sales of his $99.99 handheld clone and his $149.99 xbone clone, which are really both just pirated $20 china-produced clones, with the handheld one including over 3000 games and the xbone-like clone with 800 games!

    But the big question now is how will Nintendo and other gaming companies react to the fact 'Soulija Boy' has basically launched 'retro-emulator' clone consoles into the mainstream world, the same way big 'N' did with their official Mini's, but these are clearly not authorized boxes, so will we soon seen this world-famous rapper being dragged into court or will Nintendo turn a blind eye to it!

    Pointless fight; it'll boil down to, "but this is a real article...."

    Did notice the thread creation time-- 4:34 pm (SG854) vs. 5:37 pm (garyopa)....soo.......

    At this rate Soulija Boy will have to star in his own sitcom to pay the lawsuit...

    Just because Jackie Chan managed to get away with a Famiclone doesn't mean he's gonna get away with a knockoff emulation machine.

    Did we move back in time by a decade? When was the last time Soulja Boy was actually relevant?

    Imagine having the nuts to sell an emulation machine compatible with NES and SNES (and probably having some in the middle of the built-in games) months after Nintendo filed a lawsuit against a rom website... JUST... IMAGINE...

    EDIT: Oof. I think i got Ninja'd in this one... :ninja:

    What's the point? other chines consoles in aliexpress are much cheaper than those.
    And he earned $250K in just 24 hours? that's more than 2,500 Consoles/Handheld in just one day? ya right, like i will believe that.

    What surprises me the most isn't even the fact they ripped a random chinese product. The fact they didn't even attempt to mask it, not even a little bit. The pictures of the product in the official website literally smell aliexpress, it's truly not even hard to spot. Not even a bit.
