    Simple as the thread title is. I've been away from the scene for a while and I know i can't really trust flashcard sites. I tried to find it on this area but i can't cause everything seems to be about Gateway and other 3DS flashcards.

    I'm on 9.9U. I'm just looking for a flashcard that plays NDS games. GBA games would be a cool but not necessary bonus.

    You don't have the choice, Sky3DS is the only compatible flashcard. Otherwise, for the first time, it seems that Nintendo add a new anti-piracy protection in a game (Fire Emblem). It is impossible to play the game with a Sky3DS, and we don't know atm if it is possible to break that protection. (And that protection will probably be in every future release.)

    He's talking about NDS, not 3DS.

    OP: I would go for the DSTWO. Works great and they just started producing them again.

    I didn't read carefully, sorry.

    Well, the DWTWO is the best one for NDS games and the GBA emulator is working well.

    The SuperCard DSTwo is your guy. Handles homebrew apps and emulation for GBA, SNES, Genesis, etc. They run about $40-50 but are worth it. If you want the cheap route you can go with an R4 clone, I usually got mine at r4i-sdhc before I got my Supercard.

    Since you're in US, I would recommend PeachDS. Many GBAtemp members have bought their Gateway and Sky3DS cards from them, and they are a legit site. They ship from within US, so you'll receive the card pretty fast compared to Chinese vendors. Also, if something goes wrong with the card, the RMA process should be that much easier since it's all happening within US :)

    Here's the link to their DSTWO card...

    And here's the cheap R4 clone card...

    Best of luck :)

    I recommend the R4i Gold (r4ids.cn) over the R4i SDHC's because the R4i Gold can run Wood R4.

    Totally recommend PeachDS. They ship right away and they are very reliable and safe. The price is awesome, as well.
