May sound like a stupid question, but...

7 replies 170 views Edited Nov 9, 2012
How do I tell a difference between a non- authentic Vita game and an authentic one?
Can a Vita run fake games?

I brought a lot of DS games from eBay and half of them was fake, so I'm kinda shaky to buy some vita games from eBay. That's why I need some confirmation...

doubt there are any fake vita games.

The DS is old, and the format it uses for games is easy to replicate.

I don't think the Vita can run fake games at the moment. Nor do I think they are making them. If you found out that half of the games you bought on eBay were fake, then I would highly recommend you stop buying games there. Or just start checking seller's reputation more closely.

 Well one thing you can do is register it  with company that make it . Bit i dont know if that confirms it real or not.

 

 I wouldnt buy a game off  ebay becuase they could be selling you a broken one or used in new  wrapping then you cant get online with it, without a  online pass..    Its alot deals going on in stores  and etc. Network and look around and might can score all those same games  for  cheaper price new,  than used.

 

But what ever floats your  boats, happy gaming

Yep only get single player games used if you must but yet there is always a risk involved with buying anything used.

If you must buy games online, Id.go with Amazon or a reputable retailer.
