I did have a thread on this in Consumerwatch, but thought it was better to be in the Games section.

Does anyone have a R4 card for their Nintendo DS?
If so what do u think of it etc.

What's an R4 card? Is it a game?

It's an expansion card that enables you to play downloaded games on it.

We use DSTT cards, R4 cards are no longer made by the R4 people. You don't know what revision you're getting and who made it.

"downloaded games" I didn't know Nintendo provided downloaded games, where is there download website at?

I've looked and can;t find it!

Is it cheaper than buying the games on cartridge?

Allows you to run homebrew... click here

They can be used for illegal copies of games but I don't encourage it or help with it.

Interesting reading..

I wonder how many buy these for this reason???? I would imagine most buy them to run copied games. :(

You are quite correct but what can you do?

The carts themselves are illegal, much like a DVD writer, but it's what you can do with it that is.

Oh well. Tis the main reason Ninty launched the DSi... it has code built in stops these carts from working.

the carts aren't illegal.

and it doesn't stop the carts working, it stops the copied games from working. Homebrew can still function, apparently.
