    If you're talking about DS games, you would need to buy a flashcart (e.g, DSTWO or Acekard 2i) first. Once you got a flashcart, move the game files (.nds) to the MicroSD card. You will have to flash the flashcarts first, though and that can only be performed on a DS system.

    There is no way to play backups of 3DS games.

    Also, Cosmo Black looks the best.

    I prefer Aqua Blue though cuz the upper turquoise layer looks really cool under low lighting. In addition it has 3 layers of blueish transition, really cool. Your choice though [​IMG]

    I second that. I tried using JP DS cart on the ASI 3DS and it doesn't show in the Home menu. So no with other region DS carts. And maybe same with 3DS carts. Sad

    No thats not a crack, I have the same thing behind, its a straight line, too clean to be a crack, it's just the two pecies of material pacing together...

    Hi guys. Just thought I'd register to let you all know that the price of the 3DS at DataBlitz has dropped to PHP 12,900, probably with an additional PHP 500 discount for cash transactions (which is their usual policy for console products). Sorry for the slight necro, but this oughtta help at least a few of my fellow kabayans out.

    Just so you know, what he has written is totally f'd up. Nollog is being a racist prick. Please don't think we all think like him and look down on you because we don't. [​IMG]

    Oh and Nollog your country has leached off the EU for years, taking out more than it put in. Paid for by Britain, Germany and couple of others. It then proceeded to piss all the money we gave it up the wall. And we had to bail you out and give you even more money. So before you start on the Asians have a look at the mess your country has got itself into.

    O/T So can the Asian version not play Japanese games then, is it definitely a USA model? Can anyone test it out?

    apparently, yes, it uses US firmware too. mine's still on 1.1.0-0U, better update soon. and the languages available are English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, so i guess that pretty much confirms it, no?

    don't worry, i don't think everyone in GBAtemp is like Nollog. been here too long (as a lurker first) to have an impression like that.

    My major concern is the Video/Streaming Service...I too have an Asian Model.

    If our updates are synced with the US stuff then that just means we'll be only getting Netflix...but how can WE even use it if Netflix is Region blocked...

    Personally I feel we should be getting Both this and the Japanese Channel...so when we're in Asia we can view the Japanese Channel and if we visit the US [like I do] can still use Netflix services.

    This is a very touchy and poorly arranged topic of which I feel needs to be addressed to Nintendo, if we're only getting Netflix but can't even use it...what is the point then.

    ...here's to hoping they stop delaying stuff and just finish up with that 3D Hollywood movies they promised us. IIRC, Warner Bros was among the big wigs they mentioned partnering with Nintendo to bring 3D movies to the 3DS. and Disney also, i think.

    however they decide to bring this (downloadable, movies on cartridges/SD cards, streaming), they should bring it SOON.

    and i want my Avatar 3D. gaah.

    Hi, I from Europe. But now I'm living in China. I want to buy a N3DS, and I think that the best option would be this asian version. I already read all the post and still have a doubt: If I use an asian 3DS here is it possible to update the machine and also to download the games from Nintendo eshop? Thanks!

    USA version games are the cheapest; so it is the best console to get if you are on a budget.

    Update - possible
    eShop - MUST have a US address (google it)

    Personally I don't support you going for Asian. You should go for US set (it's the same set as Asian and it's somewhat cheaper if you don't count imports) as it has extra Club Nintendo benefits. Or better still, go for Japanese sets. They have the most content, but also the most pricey.

    If you don't read Japanese, it is pretty useless for playing RPGs, etc.

    Get a USA version.

    Very Important: Asian 3DS is region lock to USA so you can't play any JPN games
    I would strongly recommend you to get a JPN 3DS :) You can have access to more awesome JPN games/contents
    After I brought my JPN 3DS, I have practically stop using my Asian/US 3DS set...

    If you are buying a JPN set, I would also suggest you to buy MH3G! :) One of the best game ever! I have clock over 400 hours on it :P
