Getting harder to get those DS’s R4 Cart


The Tokyo District Court has found against the Chinese makers of the R4 – officially known as the “R4 Revolution for DS” – and granted an injunction against sales of the device, prompting Nintendo, Square Enix & Capcom to issue statements proclaiming that they’re a “violation under Japan’s laws”.

Most outlets have already halted sales of the R4 following pressure from the lawsuit (and the publishers, such as Nintendo & Capcom, backing it), but this ruling now makes it official: you can’t legally sell the thing in Japan.

I haven’t got one nor have i thought of getting one, if you do decide to grab one now is the time before they’re gone for good. But remember these bad boys don’t work on the up coming DSi.
