Nintendo warns R4 sellers

In response to MCV’s news yesterday that many companies are continuing to sell R4DS and other DS piracy devices despite the recent court ruling that illegalised the activity, Nintendo has issued a warning to the offending retailers.

The message is the same to companies big and small, these activities are illegal,” a spokesperson at Nintendo UK told MCV.

We will continue to work alongside ELSPA, Trading Standards and the police to enforce the recent UK High Court judgment and pursue companies who persist in unlawfully selling these devices.”

Yesterday MCV spoke to two retailers who admitted to uncertainty regarding the R4’s legality, though both remained willing to sell us the devices.

Their details have been now been received by both Nintendo and ELSPA.
