Well put it this way, all those cart copiers, the hardware you need to pirate GBA games, which readily happens is created and distributed from China. The piracy on GBA in East and South East Asia is rampant.

Rad, Flash Cart sales will increase alot. =\

Oh well, at least now Chinese consumers will have the opportunity to get legit copies of the GBA and its games. You gotta start somewhere.
