    Hello,
    im going to buy a supercard dstwo for my 3ds xl and i know that it currently does not support 3ds games however in the future once it has been hacked, would i just have to update its firmware or buy a completely different flahcard.
    thank you

    No, it's physically impossible for the DSTwo to play 3DS ROMs.

    The Gateway 3DS is currently your only choice, but it costs $80, and I have a feeling it will suck big time.

    Despite what people may have said before, the communication protocol is different, so new card.

    thank you all for your replies and after much consideration i will probably wait until they have fully hacked the 3ds and buy a flashcard then.
