eventually 3ds will be hacked fully ,the question is simple do you prefer a 3ds custom firmware like ps3 solution or a flashcard.
first option is yes to custom firmware
second option is no to custom firmware

Flash Card, Def flash card, CFW is great, its free and gives full potential, but then you run the risk of 3ds brick during CFW install, so really a flash card is alot bettter

PSP CFW is so good integration with basic system I would vote for that. Also it's really hard to get regular DS flashcards compared to just bigger regular SD cards.

Flashcards pretty much promote the ease of piracy and brings floods of noobs that ask the same question a gazillion times.

I prefer a CFW, or an alternative system menu like FSD on the 360.
However... a Linux loader like XeLL also wouldn't be that bad.

The case with the PSP is , it had a custom firmware where you can reverse back to original firmware for PSN proposes or whatever else reasons there might be.
It had "full control" over system functions as well as flexibility to undo whatever you did through, at least, a rewrite of the original firmware which you had easy access to almost at all time.

If you can achieve that on a 3DS, I'd very much like a CFW, otherwise a flashcart would do fine.

You can do that with flash carts. Anything they run is region-free and ROM hacks and stuff work just fine.
I doubt it. I'd honestly expect flash carts to be 1:1 copies of games and to work like the current 360 solutions in not allowing region free or any worthwhile modding without detection.

I doubt it. I'd honestly expect flash carts are almost certainly going to be 1:1 on the 3ds I imagine. Much like the state of 360 isos.
I meant you can do that with flash carts now, and if on the 3DS they're 1:1, then they're not flash carts, they're bootlegs.

A flash cart designed purely to run commercial games is still a flash cart. I honestly see carts only being able to run signed commerical roms as more likely than a current DS styled solution.

But if it's a case of 'fully hacked cfw vs. fully exploitable flash carts' I'd obviously go with CFW as it's just one less layer of complexity to bang shit on an SD card and run it.

But a cart that's 1:1 is not a flash cart, as it's not flashable. See Crown3DS and Ace3DS Pro/Plus/whatever.

EDIT: Or rather, the 3DS sides of those carts.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
