Pirates 'R Us - More Pirated GBA and DS Games
Pirates 'R Us is new feature from Team GameOPS. It chronicles our adventures as we search the Metro for pirated video games. For our first feature, let's visit one of the biggest toy store in the world.
Micael sent a photo to the GoNintendo staff showing pirated Nintendo DS games being sold in one of the largest toy store in the world. "Normally", these pirated games are not sold (as we first thought of) at the big malls. You'll usually find them on sidewalks and small shopping malls but not with the likes of SM, Robinson's or Ayala Malls. The GameOPS crew were not able to verify the photo from Micael since the only branch of that store was located a few miles away.
The Triangle North of Manila or Trinoma Mall recently opened at the corner of North Avenue and EDSA (infront of SM City North EDSA) in Quezon City and fortunately, that certain store also opened a branch inside that mall. We decided to check the games being sold and behold! Lot's of pirated Nintendo GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS games in the open!
To give others an idea on how much these pirated games cost, the current exchange rate is $1.00 US Dollars = P46.72 Philippine Peso.
