Thumbs down I think I just got a fake Pokemon Emerald game.

FML. I bought it off eBay for $20 since I couldn't find any used ones at Gamestop or anything and every time I start it up, before I hit "Continue," a message pops up saying "The save file will be loaded."

I started worrying about it before I even starting playing it because the label on the front of the game isn't shiny like my two previous Emerald versions. I did a quick search on google and it sounds like mine is fake.

Stupid people. Why, oh why is it so hard to not screw legit paying customers over? So sad. This guy has 1000+ ratings in his ebay account to that are all positive. I could tell some fake ones were already for sale on ebay, but this guy looked legit. Even my best efforts to buy a legit one weren't enough.

Pathetic.

I think that the problem of the fakes on Ebay & company, is here a very frequent serious problem and Nintendo it has to intervent.

Well unfortunately, it was a last resort type of deal. Two of my younger brothers "lost" my two previous versions of Emerald and I can't find ANYWHERE that sells them at a B&M store anymore.

Sucks, 'cause I really need a legit Emerald version.

Why couldn't you just buy it from your local game store?

Because, as stated in the first paragraph, there was none in their local game store.

But you'd be better off buying it from Amazon, I agree. eBay is le fail.

Well, I am an Amazon Prime member... and I just ordered ANOTHER Emerald game... this time from Amazon. I got it overnighted to me so it will be here tomorrow and the place I bought it from was an actual video game store that is affiliated with Amazon... so I am HOPING that this is a legitimate copy. If not, I will have wasted money on TWO Emerald's. I'll let you guys know...

Well, just be careful when buying Pokemon stuffs, and don't forget to ask for an official receipt.

You can't always trust e-Bay

I don't even trust buying stuff off the internet
