Nintendo no friend of homebrew market, sues DS cart makers in Gossip Café [/offtopic] Posted August 1, 2008 The thread title is misleading- it should say 'Nintendo no friend of piracy'. While it's easy to see why companies like Nintendo hate the R4, gamers who spend time with hacked devices know how great they are for purposes completely unrelated to stealing games. Making backups of the games you own to pack onto the cart results in fewer lost games while traveling and more convenience. Playing classic games via emulator is a blast, although the legality of ROMs, even if you own the original carts, is questionable. You can also download an almost infinite number of homebrew games and applications that allow you to create music, organize your video and music files, or use the hardware in unique ways. A cracked PSP is one of the most versatile and interesting pieces of consumer electronics available for such a low price, and I've met more than one person who has gotten into amateur game design by learning to code on hacked PSPs or DS systems.This is such a claptrap line of reasoning.
