Pirates 'R Us - Same Old Pirated Stuff from Toys 'R Us Trinoma Philippines

I decided to check out Toys 'R Us (Trinoma Branch) last week if they did remove their pirated games as per their reply to GameOPS contributor Micael last year,
"Thank you for your e-mail.

We have investigated the issue with our Philippines' colleagues and realized that it was wholly due to an oversight. Please accept our apologies and rest assured that Toys "R" Us will not sell pirated software. Not only do we strictly adhere to the policy of selling original games, we also take measures ensuring our overseas stores keep the same practice. Meanwhile, we will take further steps to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Your inputs are valid and valuable to us. May we thank you again for bringing this matter to our attention.

Should we be of any further assistance to you in future, please don't hesitate to contact us. Look forward to serving you again."

Apparently, Micael's email went into a blackhole and never reached someone as the Philippine branch of Toys 'R Us at Trinoma still carries multi-in-1 Nintendo DS and GameBoy Advance games. If you guys can remember, GameOPS contributor Micael sent a scoop to GoNintendo regarding the rampant piracy in the Philippines more than a year ago. Rocky even verified this report himself last year.

  1. Loko yan mga yan ah. Sila dapat unahin na i-raid ng VRB at NBI, hindi yon mga small-time na nagbebenta ng pirated software sa kalye. Malamang may mga backer yan mga yan kaya hindi pa naraid.

    Dapat i-report yan sa Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team.
