    As I'm seeing various China wholesellers, who probably offer fake DS Lites (Deal -Extreme I guess too), I'm wondering what's the difference between a real DS from Nintendo and a fake one. Is there a difference at all? Can they ruin normal carts, not work with flashcarts or do anything bad?

    And how are they actually able to make fakes? [​IMG]

    most of time they are rebuilt DSL. The issue comes form the power adapter that gets packaged with these can cause fires because cheaply made.

    i got a yellow pickachu ndsl @ xmas for my son it came in a small box with a seperate charger (which ive never used) like the fakes
    i took it apart & it had all official nintendo insides so i think mine was just reshelled (fingers crossed)
    it works fine with a cyclods evo & ez-flas4 lite deluxe & the few official carts i own

    Oh thanks! I want to buy some consoles from one wholeseller (natelsuisse.com if you're wondering), so I wanted to check if there's any difference. [​IMG]

    Is this the same for other consoles such as Wii, PS2/3, iPods..? I'd guess no, but who knows [​IMG]
