    i don't care about roms getting leaked early. It's the massive ammount of idiots posting crap topics like "OMG I JUST PLAYED THE XXXX-ROM!!!11 ASK ME ANY QUESTION!" that irritates me.

    ...mmm usually I think the game would have to leak before the rom, but who knows.

    Personally, I think its better to leak the game than the Rom... because the developers actually get money from that... plus, what loading said is true

    Are you importing? How far north do you live in California? I live about 2.5 hours north of Sacramento.

    Not to mention ROMS miss out on Wifi and Touchscreen...

    And playing a ROM makes you basically stealing....

    That's incorrect. Roms have both Wi-fi and touch screen functions.

    With the added chance that you have the right hardware to take advantage of it though...

    On topic, I'm not entirely concerned with importing a day later or earlier than
    any other retailer. I guess what it boils down to is the anxiety to have this
    game in your hand's that early :/

    Oh and I'm not planning on doing any importing myself. I'll be the patient type and wait
    for the state-side release come spring.

    I'm jealous if the Play Asia importers get it before official release tho....

    Actually, most DS games won't even play on the emulators available now. When I hear someone mentioning playing a ROM these days, I personally assume they're using a Flash Cart or M3 to do it.

    I believe the fastest PC emulator of a DS is currently running at 1fps, not sufficient to really play any game. And then there's the problem of emulating the touch screen.

    I also hear they don't have sound, and that WOULD suck.

    Yeah, I figured it wouldn't make any sense to play an emulated DS game on a
    computer. I just didn't really consider that it could be flashed to a modded card...

    But since that's another topic that doesn't really belong here.
