Flash carts existed for Nintendo DS before the R4. Flash carts existed before the DS too. R4's are in fact quite terrible, most smart people have moved on and use far superior flash carts that are unique and aren't based on R4 hardware at all (Not to mention frequently updated). Stop using terms such as "R4-Enabled piracy" or "R4 devices" to describe an entire line of flash carts. I know it must be hard for you to type out the extra words since you're so overcome by your amazing blog-writing-action, but seriously get with the program here. You're only making yourselves look like fools to the entire Internet crowd.
And that's no good.
Unless you are Jim Sterling. Your intentional shenanigans make you my idol. If only it was my American idol.
