    if shoptemp is the product of gbatemp and one of its partners making a new online store, which one was it? if you ask me, it's dealextreme's new fron for selling flashcarts. this conveniently showed up right after DX stopped selling them, and it sells for ridiculously low prices just like DX.

    any other odd speculation?

    Costello is secretly running it from behind the scenes with Shaunj66 working the customer service and Ace sorting out the shipping. All with fake names of course

    Maybe its a front for an alien take over! Maybe it's run by the Illuminati! Maybe it's a coincidence that it's a site that wanted to start up, and figured now would be a good time!

    Who knows...

    They might consider marketing the OpenPandora. Impressive piece of hardware but it doesn't have too many cheap shops.

    I think they're secretly in cahoots with the feds, so whoever buys from Shoptemp will be arrested for piracy. [​IMG]

    I could be wrong on the dates, but I'm sure that when Costello posted this topic, Dealextreme was still selling flash carts.

    ic also... that topic made it pretty obvious that gbatemp was thinking of making a shop... costello is not the greatest at being sneaky [​IMG] and yeah, i ordered a 2GB Kingston microsd and the cops tasered me a few times just in case i pirated with it... (just kidding, im in canada... LAND OF FREE PIRACY [​IMG] )
