Game over

We've all see the mall kiosks that are selling knock-off Nintendo platforms that are supposedly filled with hundreds upon hundreds of games. Those consoles almost always have the same few games duplicated over and over, and are filled with nothing but ROMs and ROM rip-offs.

The Triangle shopping center in Raleigh, North Carolina played host to one of those booths, and word quickly spread to the North Carolina Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force. The task force has been working for two weeks straight to pull off the seizure, and sellers ended up voluntarily surrendering them. 340 units were seized, with a street value of around $800k.
