DVD.CO.UK DS game information

I would like to ask others about the DS games that they have received from dvd.co.uk

In the past few weeks three of the DS games that i have received from dvd.co.uk have been American versions and not european

Has anyone else experienced this?

Although the ds is region free i know, some games like brain training are annoying in the american version with american currency etc and also when members of my family finish with a game is it impossible to trade in american versions games as no shops take them and the cash value is lower on places like ebay/this forum etc

Anyway i just thought that i should let you know that if you buy from dvd.co.uk your ds games might not be PAL european

Yeah definitely black cases, and it states on the back of the game cart for sale rental etc in USA canada and latin america so its definitey the american version

also it has ESRB rating which is american and no the ELSPA which is European

I've recieved a game from Amazon UK with the slim black packaging a few months ago and it was the PAL version.

It looks like dandocs collection is ruined

get an r4 revolution!! problem solved!

Guys.. looks like its some kind of change of distribution methods for some games cause i work in Choices and i looked today and both some of the pokemon games and the new harry potter one are american versions with the american ratings and "distribution in north america, canada and latin america only" on the backs.

I know i can tell:)

Just buy really rubbish old cheap DS games off ebay with the white cases and replace them. Problem solved:-D

I find most people prefer the slimmer US cases, I know I do.

US games can be a problem, aside from various localisation issues they can be incompatible in system link with UK games. I quite often buy US games anyway but I'd rather know what I'm getting - there are games I specifically bought as UK versions because I knew the US version wouldn't work as I wanted.
