    I own 3. I kinda want to buy another one though, ha ha. So I guess it's a hobby.

    4 flashcarts is really nothing. I'd just see it as a hobby and as a side effect of being an enthusiastic pirate.

    I think Urza's the one here that owns most flashcarts, although I'm not sure.

    I own 6 myself.

    I only own 2, and don't plan on getting anymore DS flashcarts (3DS possible).

    Sounds like a hobby. Collect them and you may be able to sell them in a few decades. An R4 might even be worth a few cents then.

    I have 4 flashcarts myself; 2 slot1 and 2 slot2.

    I guess whether it could be considered a sickness or a hobby all comes down to point of view. A person who does not play video games would likely think it's some sort of obseestion to have multiple flashcarts, whereas a gamer knows it's just par for the course.

    Me? Flashcarts are just a means to an end.....you know, free games and stuff. I guess you would call that a "hobby". I collect ALL the numbered release DS games, even though somewhere around 80% of them are games I consider total crap. Is that still "hobby" or is it obsession or sickness? I don't know.

    @Rayder: I suppose you could call it an obsession for completeness, though there isn't really anything that 'obsessive' about it.

    I do it, too. Just for the sake of completion.

    It's when you start bragging about owning a rare one you have to start to worry.

    I have one of these: [​IMG]

    Eh, I think it's normal.

    I have 3 slot ones, an original R4, a Cyclo DS, and an AceKard 2i.

    Probably gonna get a 3DS one if they get one.
