I would like know what your Opinion on Piracy is
In the words of Margen67, Piracy is Right™!
I only pirate because it's an awesome money-saving technique!
I think its okay especially when the games arnt being made anymore or if you own it and want a digital version i shouldnt have to buy games twice. I also think its fine as long as you buy the original afterwards... if the game is worth the money that is.
I pirate games, if I like them I buy them, if I hadn't pirated I probably never would have had found out the likes of 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors and Taiko no Tatsujin (as both weren't released in europe).
On the other hand if I don't like the game I just end up on deleting it within 2-3 hours.
Time for this thread again, is it?
Yeah i share the same opinion, if i like the game but not the company *cough* Konami *cough* then i would pirate it but if i want to support companies like nintendo, square enix etc. I buy thier games.

Sorry didnt see them, should i delete this thread?
If I have a system that I can pirate games on, then I'll pirate games for that system. It's the same reason why people pirate videos and music, because most devices allow them to.
I have the exact same opinion. This is why I don't get a Gateway. I really don't want to start cheating on games, but when I can, I do it anyway.
Same here, I can use NTR-CFW for cheating anyways. The only flashcards I own are DS flashcards (all of them are R4s).
I only pirate games that are currently unavailable, or that I own/used to own. I won't go out of my way for piracy, but if there's something quick and easy to do, I'll do it.
In this day and age, I've seen little reason to actually pirate something for the average consumer regarding availability. 5-10 years ago the situation was completely different without digital distribution, but now we have most PC games available on Steam, GoG, Origin or Uplay. Spotify, SoundCloud and co for music. Youtube, Netflix, HBO, Hulu and co for movies and series.
For stuff not available anymore, the thing is a bit tricky. Games for consoles not produced anymore and without digital options such as PSN, XBL or NN having emulated versions your only option is to buy used (no money to devs/producer/distributor/etc in general) or pirate (no money to anyone except the possible site owner from ads). Another impact is the actual cultural situation. Copyright has made it also nearly impossible to distribute historical information such as news paper articles from a certain period due to the paper itself owning all rights without historical context. Gutenberg didn't see these limitations when he invented the printing press?
Could you possibly sell me one?
Piracy is FREEEEEEEEEEEE!
Beat me to it
I'm not currently planning on selling any of them (since most of them are clones for older DSes, and they can't run all games), but if you're on the lookout for one for a 3DS, just search "3DS Dual Core" or "3DS Memory Card" on eBay and the listings should either have the box with the r4 name covered or the back of the flashcard. It's how I got my R4 Dual Core.
Thank you for the advice!!
True. But there is one game that bothers me regarding it's availability. Flipnote Studio 3D. It's been released everywhere outside Europe years ago. 2013 for Japan, and 2015 for US. And it didn't even get a proper release for the US. It was just a Club Nintendo thing. I don't even think they can get it anymore since the discontinuation. And the PAL version is just "planned". I mean seriously Nintendo...
I live in Europe and i really liked the old flipnote hatena, and i've been waiting for the European release but Nintendo is so Quiet about it
That's the reason why I said the average consumer. There are many cases, where certain requirements aren't fulfilled. In this case you would always have the option of buying a non-EUR 3DS. Sure it's unfeasible for the average person, but in this case I don't see you as the average person.
I'm still glad that we have options for most consoles. I have ripped pretty much all my games pre-PS360 era including the Wii to make it possible to make most of the hardware. The disc drives fail quite easily over the years, so this is the least problematic case. Sure I could play most of the games in HD on an emulator on PC, but alas, the PC is not directly connected to my TV.. Yet.
