R4DS, Goodness or Piracy? Tags: Handheld Gaming Piracy Video Games Last response: October 24, 2007 10:24 AM in Video Games Share Zarroc October 23, 2007 10:08:15 AM I just bought an R4DS, a system similar to the download for a PSP, only it uses a slot 1 card with a micro SD card for storage. www.r4ds.com Games are easily downloaded, and work just like the real thing, but the biggest pull is that it can play media such as films (to a degree), music and view pictures. Therefore the question: Piracy or not? More about : r4ds goodness piracy Sengoku October 24, 2007 1:14:45 AM Depends on how the user uses it. I'm guessing that the biggest pull for most people is actually piracy, and not "playing media", since the normal PSP can already do this to an extent. I'd be amazed if Sony doesn't target them for destruction/lockout. tenaciousleydead October 24, 2007 6:49:27 AM Piracy to some extent. If it was mainstream and easy to find it would be downright illegal. Most of the people i know with one of these buy all of their games out of devotion to developers.

It's something different to have my DS as an MP3 player, even though it does chew the battery. BigMac October 24, 2007 10:24:17 AM Sengoku said:Depends on how the user uses it.
