    Well, I'm going to buy a 3DS before April 8. Period.

    What I want to know is if I should use my DSTwo in it now or wait until after the may update, or atleast to see if a user gets his 3DS bricked.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Your Friendly Neighborhood Egg

    It's your choice.

    You might as well use it right when you get it. All those rumours about the 3DS getting bricked is just fear-mongering.

    I think the DSTWO is a nice investment personally.

    Not my question... But yes, I agree... Got mine in November, and haven't had second thoughts about if I should've bought it or not... until the iEvo was released anyway...

    oooohhhhh, I read should I BUY a DSTWO now or wait until later. To actually answer you question, there are no risks of bricking by using a flashcard.

    The warning isn't new dude.


    I think i'm going to wait. I was going to buy a DStwo but I don't have an older console to update it anyway so I figured I might as well wait and see what the makers come up with.

    Not about bricking (don't think nintendo will be dumb enough to do that). But they may void your warranty after detect flashcard use on logs.

    You should wait to your warranty ends at least.

    Been thinking about getting a Gamestop warranty. You bring in your broken [item], and it gets replaced, right then and there...

    imo best buy's ADH warrentys are better i broke a psp 2000 and got a 3000 WITH cash added with it (i have NO clue aswell) and i broke a gateway NV52 and some how ended up with a gateway NV53A which is SO much better. so when nintendo rolls out the 3DS Lite you can how should i say... have an "accident" ADH covers any damage what so ever.

    It varies by price of the said item

    Edit: They offer it in 1 year increments for $30 each year from just looking at the website

    Really? That's in the US, right? That's probably cheaper than Walmart's 2-year, which is like $70...

    Well, I updated my DSTwo, DSOne, and iSmart for it, and I'll just switch around between the three quite often, as well as throw some legit games and some 3DS games in the mix...

    DSTwo goes in first! (well, maybe after Monkey Ball 3D...)

    they just want to frighten you, that's true
    or they just want more and more pirates to gather around for the may update

    i decided not to use the cart, instead, i use my old dsi

    I think you should wait at least until the May update. They might not be able to brick your console, but if there is really a way to detect the use of carts, you might not get some of the apps they're going to release with this update.

    Well, this is just my opinion anyway.

    In-Store Gamestop warranty it is! (they cover accidental damage, right? I'll just 'accidentally' drop it in water or something...)

    I am currently using my Flash cart on my new 3DS, my old DS (Zelda DS Lite) recently decided to take a vacation from reading my game cards, so I am using my Flash Cart on my 3ds.

    Now, depending on the may update there is a chance I will simply do a system reformat to "wipe the slate clean".

    I may be wrong about this, wouldn't be the first time nor would it be the last [​IMG] , but if there are any negative effects from the use of a flash cart then I think a system format would get rid of all traces.
