    It looks legit...but it just arrived so spontaneously, and without warning. It's fishy, but time will tell whether or not its fake. (It probably is)

    I have my doubts, mainly because they never show you the front of the cart at all.

    two threads both at the same time....talk about timing
    Anyway guess this is kind of real even if an update might block it or it doesn't exactly help homebrew in a way that I can see

    Right behind you
    So, a brand new poster posting about a new 3ds flashcart from a team nobody has ever heard of. Sounds legit alright...

    Seriously though, it at least is a more convincing video then crown3ds ever posted. Not that I'm really holding my breath.

    I didn't see any skips or breaks in the video. It looks... pretty legit.

    I have my doubts, but this looks like the closest we've ever gotten to a 3DS flashcart.

    Hey this is interesting, one rom at the time, I actually like it !
    It might beat the ' pirate's syndrome ' when you have too many games on your flashcart and don't know what to play !
    Having a limited amount of spare microsd cards, will force you to concentrate on a few games at the time, actually having a chance to finish them.
    Unless you are not too lazy to transfer games back and forth from your PC.

    Anyway, if it's legit, it's a good start, let's see what other manufacturers will come up with.

    Away from you.
    It's region-locked. The rom must be the same as the console or else it won't work. That's what I understood.

    Yeah, I realize that. ;) It'd probably be best if the threads were merged though, so I figured I should point that out.
