Not only do flashcarts boot on the Japanese DSi XL systems - but it's recently been reported that the Acekard 2i boots and runs perfectly on the European version of the DSi XL systems! Getting lazy, Nintendo? When the original Nintendo DSi was released, none of the current DS flashcarts available then would even boot on the system. It's unconfirmed whether or not other current DSi flashcarts work on the European DSi XL systems. The Nintendo DSi XL system is planned to be released on March 5th in Europe for £179.95. by the way...the US release of the DSI XL will be retailed at $189.99. After taxes, it will be about the same price as the Wii currently. You may want to think twice before making this handheld a impulse buy So what's your comments?...are you really surprised that Nintendo didn't implement anymore anti-flashcart technology?
