Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against 5 companies for selling a device that hacks the DS into playing illegal games

Even though Nintendo is making record profits thanks to the Wii console, they still argue they are losing massive amounts of money due to piracy.  They estimate they lost $1 billion dollars worldwide in 2007 due to piracy.

The R4 Revolution overrides the firmware and allows both home-brew and pirated games to play on the DS.
