    One of my sponsors is curious. He just needs to gather information to update his shop. I just need a yes or no if they are clones.

    Thanks!

    the very first one is the only one that even resembles the original real r4 and even then those arent produced anymore so all fake the first looks to be a direct clone of the original though.

    As jefffisher said the only one which even looks like the original R4 is the first one. Some things to remember when determining if an R4 is an original R4 are...

    does it have SDHC, if so it is a clone.
    does it work on the DSi, if so it is a clone.

    Plus if it has any site other then http://www.r4ds.cn/ (I think that is the original site) on the label then it is a clone.

    But all R4's are supposed to somewhat of a clone now and the first R4 is probably a clone which has the same/very similar hardware as the original R4.

    If it wasn't made and sold about three years ago then it is a clone.
    If it is and 'original' R4DS that can't use SDHC that that is the closest you will get to the real thing, every thing else is made by other people using the R4 name to make themselves look good.
    The first one looks real to me. From what I remember the original R4DS came with a wrist strap and a cart case. Also, some of them came with an extra cover for the cart, so the cart came n either dk grey or white and you got the opposite colour shell with it.

    Well i can tell you now that the R4i-Sdhc (the red box) is a clone of the DSTT, cuz i bought one. Another one is a supercard ds one clone (unsure on which one though)

    Besides you've just touched the tip of the iceberg, thats only a couple of the R4 remakes i've seen. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They're all clones.

    If it is being sold "new" now, it is a clone.

    Thanks, I figured as much, but my boss needs some proof lol. He for some reason thinks that his products are real and genuine. Thanks a bunch, need some more to convince!

    Hopefully your boss can take a hell of a lot of people saying the same thing over and over as proof. The REAL R4 has not been produced since 2007. Everything being sold today IS a clone.

    He wants proof?

    How about this...


    The R4 team does not exist anymore and has not produced any carts for several years...

    Can't get better proof than this... There are no more "genuine" R4s... end of story...


    EDIT:

    But, y'know... don't let a small fact get in the way of making a quick buck off someone who doesn't know any better...

    Why keep flogging a dead horse?


    It is clear to see that he wants to keep making a profit from clones by selling them as "real"...

    All clones. Only the first one is close to the original. [​IMG] As far as I care.

    Because the dead horse may have something else in store! [​IMG] But we'll see tomorrow whether it passes or not.

    They're all clones but the 1st and 4th ones are probably the only ones to work with Wood R4 (1:1 clones of the R4).

    ALL ARE CLONES
    ONLY THE FIRST ONE WILL WORK WITH WOOD R4 BECAUSE ITS A 1:1 CLONES OF THE ORIGINAL R4
    I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING ON THIS FOR A GOOD 3 MONTHS NOW AND THE R4 TEAM DOESN'T EXIST SO THEY ARE ALL CLONES

    Not a big expert on R4, but all I've ever heard about them was that they were clones and the quality was sub par.
