Typical MS. Squeeze until dry then dump.

tho its a low blow from ms its their machine. They wanna r8p their clients for all their worth. By blocking third party peripherals so consumers have to by their overpriced add ons. There's nothing a court will do about it. IMO

They are not going to just rape the Consumer they are going to rape anyone who tries to get their product Certified they will have to have prices as high as the MS products.

=/ Then no more 3rd party controllers... etc etc
slippery slope. I dont know whats the big fuss with HDD though.
I understand if they talk about memory cards.. since people edit their saved files with memory cards that are not made my MS. But if they are disabling HDDs, now thats just pitiful

I am rooting for you. Like PS3 gamers, you have balls.

i have to give datel credit for wanting their product to sell and work on the 360. To have been able to use an SD card for storage instead of the hdd was sweet.

I bet it would have been so much faster in loading games saved to it. Obviously if they did apply for an official license, MS would make them secure the file system so it cant be affected by using a pc to modify.

Good luck datel. I like their max media player for the ds. I have a 2gb cf card I use for homebrew stuff on the ds that works well with the MMD.

Why don't they apply to MS for a licence?
