Counterfeit Hori Screen Protectors on eBay?

Hori has long been recognized as the crème de la crème of screen protector manufacturers, the standard by which all other screen protectors must attempt to live up to, though they will inevitably fail. Whether you're looking to guard the screens of your original Nintendo DS or your DS lite, Hori is the way to go. The attention to quality, affordable price, and ease of application all come together to form one giant Voltron of awesomeness.

Unfortunately, most retail shops like GameStop and Best Buy insist on carrying less-than satisfactory screen protectors, cruel parodies of Hori's product. Those hoping to fetch a Hori screen protector usually have to buy online from either an import site or eBay. According to recent findings however, bootleg screen protectors are just as widespread on eBay as pirated GBA carts!

Early reports claim that these counterfeit screen protectors scratch very easily compared to the authentic ones. Adding further insult, the fake protectors will have a slightly brown tint, sullying the vibrant colors of your DS lite. Much like with bootlegged GBA/DS carts, there are also packaging inconsistencies you can keep an eye out for to ensure that these phony protectors never touch your DS' screens.

thats so crazy haha.

it will never disappear.

The more they try to stop it, the more publicity it gets. The fact is that Yuzu will forever live on torrent and other sites. Nintendo is fighting an uphill battle.

Another 8,500 will take their place. Smh


There is nothing stopping these people from working on Yuzu clones and sharing them on torrent sites. Nintendo or anyone else cannot do shit about torrents or usenet.

Super Mario 64 DS: Remakes Done Right

Super Mario 64 DS was offered as a launch title for the Nintendo DS, a remake of the classic platform game with a few original tricks.

Not with those D-pad controls

Needs more appreciation. I never had an N64 so this was what I played. Sure the Yoshi hat mechanic at first is a slog but you unlock Mario and the others for real and then it takes off. Personally I never had an issue with the controls. Can't forget the mini games and the 4 player rumble over download play.

Indeed, as stated in the article there were tonnes of control options and very much a 'take whatever you like, leave the rest' attitude to most of the game's extras.
