R4 cards
« on: July 09, 2009, 03:02:08 PM »
 Was wondering If any of you guy's use R4 cards in your DS's.
 I have two for each of my kids, and they save me a fortune. each card can hold between !5 to 30 games depending on size.

I have 3. They are awesome. Not had no battery issues yet. But as you said better than paying a fortune for unreasonably priced games.

I have not got tonnes of games for wii and psp. There is only my xbox that is clean
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

I bought an M3Real card a few months ago.

I played GTA: Chinatown Wars about halfway through and then went straight back to my Xbox 360 + 42" 1080p.

I just can't get into something on a 3" screen anymore.  That's why I play old GBA games on my modded Wii.

Isn't there massive pixelation from playing a small game on a massive TV ?

It's surprisingly bearable.  I use the upgraded Component cables for my Wii, which helps a little.  But the emulator's texture enhancing working with my tv's pixel-smoothing features makes it look no worse than any of the non-HD ports on Xbox Live Arcade.

I most recently played Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu.  The game actually looks and plays very smooth.  A lot of handheld games have very clunky controls that don't translate well to a controller, but Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu was very precise.

I don't think anyone will be bothered by this but I thought i'd share it.   :)

DS pirate carts now illegal in UK

R4 cartridges, which are used to play pirated copies of games on the Nintendo DS, are now illegal in the UK.

A judge ruled against R4 company Playables Limited and Wai Dat Chan, making it illegal to import, advertise and sell R4 carts in Britain.

The "first-ever" judgement was made after the London High Court ruled the carts were illegal because they bypass the DS's security measures in order to run games.

"Nintendo promotes and fosters game development and creativity, and strongly supports the game developers who legitimately create new and innovative applications," Nintendo said in a statement.

"Nintendo initiates these actions not only on its own behalf, but also on behalf of over 1,400 video game-development companies that depend on legitimate sales of games for their survival.

In the U.K. alone, there have been over 100,000 game copying devices seized since 2009, Nintendo said.

Playables Limited and Wai Dat Chan argued that game copiers were lawful because they allow for the play of "homebrew" applications. Obviously that didn't work.

I don't think the law prohibits the use of R4 cards.  Only the commercial sale of them.

I also wonder if the law only affects "R4" cards specifically, because there are a lot of other devices that do the same thing that aren't associated with the R4 company.
