I am looking forward to this game more than any other in 2009 (hmmm....maybe Rockband 2 on wii) and it is available to pre order from Sendit.com for £24.89 normally, only £22.40 until midday Thurs 22nd Jan.

Just use Sendit's 24hr 10% off code, enter SENDIT10 at checkout!

Just snagged it at that price with possible 10% quidco (new customers only), next cheapest online is £23.87 @ 101CD.

Not brilliant saving and I'm not expecting much heat nevertheless yet another saving courtesy of Sendit.com's 24 hour sale

Update - Release Date is 20th March 09 not 23rd Jan as stated on sendit.com

you do know it's legal for people to have a ROM of a game they own? Many people use a ROM so the genuine game doesn't get wrecked

p.s

i dont even own a DS, i don't know why i'm getting involved :p

Actually it's not legal. Unless you make the backup yourself and use it only on the machine you play the original on.

Can I Download a Nintendo ROM from the Internet if I Already Own the Authentic Game?

There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet.

DS only, 100% sure.

It is a completely different format for the game, it will be interesting to see how good it is. I have it pre-ordered already, but this is a good price for anyone who doesn't.

Excellent Price!

Nice one OP!

well, they can get stuffed....so if i go on the train, i have to carry 30 carts with me rather than 1 cart to stay legal...totally ridiculous...maybe i shouldnt bother buying them then (only my good nature stops me) or perhaps they should start listening to customers....why not let people pay for downloads from eg Nintendo...in addition perhaps they should stop ripping people off re: NDS games.....some of them are barely 10mb and they have the cheek to charge £25-30 for them!!
#13
lets hope its good
#14
I soooo want this game, heat and rep added!
#15
looks like its gonna be good - but i have to say i wont buy it - no DS game is worth £20+ - they are all way overpriced. The only games worth paying for on DS are Mario games.

when is this out BTW?
#16
I preordered this, and added hot. Read a preview recently, looked awesome. Although, I must agree about the pricing of DS games, but its mostly a problem with Mario games (mario kart still goes for 30 pound in Zavvi/HMV, even though its been out for more than a year.

It doesn't say you can't back up your own carts. Although admittedly it is worded to give that impression. It is legal to use homebrew software to make your own rom file from your own copy to use on a flashcart as long as you keep store the original and don't use it at the same time as the copy. Nothing in Nintendo's statement contradicts this.

They are introducing a download service, that's why they've brought out the DSi. Too little too late perhaps, but at least they've got the hint that people wish to download games and not have to swap cartridges.
Regarding pricing, you're not grasping how capitalism works. Goods are priced at what people are willing to pay. If anybody's at fault it's the consumer, not Nintendo.

Yea, that's a nonsense law though. Why does it matter where you get the backup from? Why is your right to a backup lost if you have no means yourself to make the backup? That's a non-law imo.

No, the consumer isn't at fault. You're suggesting the standard nonsense: 'if we all stop buying it then the prices would be reduced'. That's why Woolworths went under, mate. We all stopped buying, and they couldn't afford to reduce the price.

I agree with you except for the MB bit. The size of a game isn't really representative of the amount of work put in to / time spent on it. But I think £25-30 is a rip-off, period.
#21
Its such a shame to spend £25-30 on a game and it keeps you entertained for 10 mintues because its rubbish! And when the kids want every game out there it becomes expensive. Nearly everyone in my family has an R4 card and i must say i have downloaded games and thought to myself im so glad i didnt go and buy that because it would have been a total waste of money! Games like this though - the GTA series - They are so worth it!! But yes i wont be purchasing im afraid ! Waiting for the torrent to be uploaded. And unfortunately until Nintendo lower their prices a lot of people will keep buying the R4's and downloading. :whistling:

not correct - its illegal to download, even if you have the original.....i dont agree with it though - i have 20+ games on a card but also have the bought versions of those games which stay at home - i would pay extra for the facility to store lots of games on one card as im not carrying 20-30 cards on the train!

bad example - woolies went under because they didnt bring themselves up to the date and sold tat or dvd's/games that others could sell cheaper
