I'm sure mine was fake because... *points to previous post* and the label on the cart had less shinier markings and streaks. I know because I got a new one later (that is legit of course) and the markings on the cart's label are brighter and shinier. And it doesn't delete itself or say this everytime it starts up (and there's still a playable file recorded on it):
THE SAVE FILE WILL BE LOADED.
THE GAME CAN BE PLAYED.
