Captive audience with no competition. Possibly anticipating an N64 classic launch.

>> No.5786387

To cover Amazon's cut for hosting a storefront. The increased exposure with cloud services means a ramped up production. It is hard to go from concept to finalized manufactured release with insured quality. Worth every penny, if you want to support American ingenuity, you can buy the same devices from Stone Age Gamer for even more and it would still be worth it.

On what basis? Flash carts aren't illegal.

>> No.5788187

>>5787403
Sure it is, it's modifying Nintendo hardware to circumvent copyright protections. And if a huge retailer like Amazon is selling it they're sure to get hit with a lawsuit. After all, we know a based company like Nintendo doesn't want anybody enjoying their old games unless it's through official channels.

It's not modifying Nintendo hardware in any way whatsoever, you're wholly incorrect. You can get chink knockoff handhelds loaded with ROMs on Amazon and Nintendo isn't doing anything about those.

>> No.5788259

>>5786247
As someone with an amazon storefront, we have to price things substantially higher because amazon takes a large cut of the profit.

Also, a lot of people don't seem to be aware that amazon has individual sellers so they shill out more money for something they could get cheaper on ebay because they trust a big corporation more than an individual seller who might "scam" them.

You've frankensteined a Nintendo cart into bypassing the console's security. How is that not modifying Nintendo hardware?

According to Nintendo even making back-ups of your own games is illegal.

You just implement your own cart to behave in a certain way, which just so happens to be the same as an authentic cart. You do not just Nintendo's software or their patents at all. Long story short, >>5788289 this

Krikkz carts don't contain any original Nintendo PCBs, they're cutom designed boards with FPGAs chips.

Likewise, neither do they come loaded with Nintendo ROMs.

Patent is expired. The nearest thing they could claim is bypassing the internal "DRM" software by supplying it the correct data but that isn't modifying anything in the console itself.
