That's the thing, there's no way to legally buy a new copy of so many classic games. You're left with trying to find used copies that are often priced to ludicrous levels, and publishers don't see any of that money anyways. I don't consider it piracy when there is no way to support the developers even if you wanted to

My R4 seems to have been made obsolete through firmware updates. I guess it would probably work in my DS Phat, but I'm not sure I want to use that thing...

I don't understand why Nintendo doesn't do more with all of their old games. Why can't they sell digital versions of most of them on the Switch? Or like a subscription thing even. Seems like a gold mine to me. I'd subscribe to that on day one if the selection was good.

Even Disney has figured out how to open the vault. Nintendo is missing the boat.

Even if they did the quality probably wouldn't be there. Look at the Super Mario 3D All-Stars package, they're just using emulators for all of the games. But you get better performance and way more options by using roms with Dolphin, because the developers behind it are actually passionate about classic games. Nintendo just does the bare minimum when they finally decide to do anything at all
