I got a cartridge of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth on eBay, and played the beginning of the case on it, as right now it seems to work competently, but the cartridge says rated E when the game is actually rated T. Does anyone have ideas why that is? And what is others’ advice on whether I should keep it or return and refund it?

You bought a bootleg copy, sorry.

Even aside from the incorrect ESRB rating, one big tell of a legit vs fake DS cartridge is the lower-left corner on the label.

Authentic cartridges have the lower left corner being straight cut, like in this photo of a legit cartridge of this game I found:

Bootlegs, like the one you have, have the lower-left corner being curved.

As far as 'getting your money back', I'd say give it a shot, I'd expect you bought this expecting a legitimate copy of the game and not a bootleg one. eBay tends to be really good at siding with the buyers.

I'm more interested in whether it gets the job done in terms of playing the game actually. Do you think it functions like an authentic cartridge in terms of me still being able to play it, but just is inauthentic?

there's no way to know other than playing it, honestly. maybe it'll be legit in terms of giving you AAI like you wanted, maybe it'll break after a case. all depends on the bootleg itself
