The best thing is that you can say "I've got wood for sheep" to people. Presumably you can't do that in the DS game. :(

Unless you live in Hong Kong you will have to wait forever and a day to get anything from there ... took me a month just to get a DS touch screen component and a tri wing screwdriver lol

I agree.  Ever since the whole Famicon Disk Drive thing nintendo has been insanely cautious about stopping pirates...  I think that's the reason why (in retrospect) most of thier latest systems have ..:: Cough Cough::.. kinda sucked.

Sega always took chances and tried to be innovative, and the rest is history.

So you're saying the more innovative company will die out?
And you think Sega is more innovative than nintendo?

Nintendo is innovative too of course, my main point was that in order to stop piracy they've sort of limited themselves in ways.  The biggest example is the N64.  They used outdated cartridge technology which limited the games, alienated a lot of third party developers and caused them to be stomped by an inferior system like Playstation.  They pretty much did the same thing with GameCube as well.  They also always seem a bit "gun-shy" about actually releasing thier innovative ideas (look at the useless extension ports on the bottom of most Nintendo systems).

Dreamcast however used a much simpler development system which third party developers loved and was very inovative, but it was easily hacked.  Sega took the chance, tried to stay on top, and suffered the fate Nintendo was so terrified of. 

So innovation isn't doomed to fail....  but it seems like companies succed more when they keep flooding the market with the same old crap.

Dealextreme is horrible.  You have to wait a month to get anything plus their customer service is horrible.

Dealextreme is a trusted site. I've purchased from them before, they do take a while to ship, but with rock bottom prices and free shipping you can't complain.
A poorly make flash cart has the potential to ruin your DS, at least that's what I've been hearing from people on forums. So be careful if you buy one.

DealExtreme is incredible if you're not in a rush to get something. I got a ds touch screen from there and figured out myself how to fix it, it was great ... :)

Also got a couple r4's there. They work! I can't complain! Oh and some zapper pens that shock people when they try to use them lol

The site I bought my r4 is definitely trust worthy.

Also they give you free 3 day shipping, and they're coming from California.  I got mine in 3 days, I'm in Ohio. I'm happy :)
