We were the first to show you how the pirated Nintendo Wii games are being sold in Quiapo. Now that's nothing new since Quiapo has been known to many for being the source of everything cheap and almost everything fake or pirated. Our government can't stop them and I don't know why.

Anyway, shopping malls in Metro Manila usually don't have these because of the strict policies of the mall owners. But behold! Just 1 hour of strolling in one of the biggest shopping malls in Quezon City yielded lots and lots of pirated games for different video game systems. For this post, let me show you the sheer number of available pirated Nintendo DS games being sold openly inside S* C*TY N**** ED**

Another video game store inside the mall selling lots of pirated Nintendo DS games. Most of them are 4 in 1 games.

All of these games are being sold just side by side with original game cartridges. Buyers without any knowledge may fall victim again with these scammers. Prices are almost the same and even the packages look like original. The only way to know is to ask the sales person and if they say it's a class A, then expect it to be pirated.

We'll post more pictures next time. We're still verifying the PSP games we saw if it's legit or not.
