How can I determine if a used game is pirated?

How can I tell if used GBA/DS games are pirated?


  • The cartridges fail to fit smoothly in the slot.
  • You are getting a non-official box.
  • The manual is usually home-printed (as well as the sticker on the cartridge).
  • They sometimes fail to work on new versions of the console (DSi).

(I used to buy a lot on second hand, and unfortunately I got 2-3 fake games like that)
