Now you're playing with power
I want this.
The link leads to a flash card burner that works with Game Boy Advance. Using a program like Pocket NES, I could upload over a gig worth of classic games onto a single card.
I have no problem with taking and even distributing ROM files for the NES since they haven't been on the market for over ten years. But with one of these at my disposal, what few moral qualms I have regarding internet piracy would immediately dissipate. Others have figured out a way to use the cards to upload games from every system built before '92, in addition to movies and pirated GBA games.
While I'm completely sold on uploading every NES ROM on the internet onto one of these things there's just one little problem:
flash card burners runs upwards of $95 and the cards themselves can run twice as much. Funk 'dat. I like my piracy cheap and easy. ARRR!
