    I told my cousin something which seems similar [To an ESL-student], if Sony and other copyright holders had provided a GOOD port/emulator on the PlayStation store, I would have spent more money on digital downloads(legally) than on buying new/unopened games.

    If you buy Resident Evil Code: Veronica X on eBay, Sony and Capcom don't get squat but if you download the awfully-pixelated edition on PSN, you support their... subpar support of an old game.

    I seem to be going offtopic but let me try and go back ontopic: The original Nintendo DS was a very consumer-friendly platform, it had no region-locks and was backwards compatiable among other things.

    I am not sure if Nintendo released "Nintendo Classics #234" and such on the original NDS' cartridges but they should have cashed in on kids trying to discover the games of ages past.

    Now we're locked into Wiiware and 3DS-store's DRM and region locks.

    Respect the consumer and you'll earn a lot...

    *PS* Sorry about the typing errors and grammatical mistakes.
    Was away from torrenting, this website and private trackers since 2014 (Maybe longer). Apologies if my inactivity has harmed you, but, I had family matters to attend to

      No loss in profit, but I guess its in violation of copyright and IP rights. I don't see how anyone could prove any fiscal loss in court when the last recorded unit sold by the company is over a decade ago.

        It goes without saying but I am really missing this tracker. I hope they come back in the future so that we can continue preserving all these old games.

            That site is down for some reason since a few weeks. Anyone here that knows something about that?
