    J-Pop isn't so bad

    I've got a DS and I have to openly admit, I was completely ignorant of the R4 cartridge / levels of gaming piracy. Is it really that big a kettle of fish? The games are like £25-30 at first and drop over time, or pick it up second hand.

    It's frustrating, but I frequently see people on the tube or buses showing people their DS and saying "Oh, just pick any game, I've got all of them on there."

    How do people expect new games to be made, if the developers don't receive any return from their last release? People complain that £30 a go is too much, but I don't think that makes it ok.

    The Big N will still be fine from profits from hardware, but small developers will be discouraged from producing for the DS, arguably one of the most suited platforms for them.

    I used to use My DS with an R4 cart full of games I'd actually gone out and bought. It was great, saved me carrying a whole pile or carts around with me.

    I don't do it now because I got bored of the DS and haven't used it in about 8 or 9 months.

    i just wanted to know, is it legal in the uk to buy these cards even if you dont want to pirate games cos there is some awesome homebrew apps and games out there also is it legal to pirate games you own, for the convenience of not having to carry all your games
