    You want a black card to match your DS right? [​IMG]

    All recent R4's are shipped thus, so I believe...

    Dark grey unit = English language card.
    White unit = Chinese language card.

    I reckon all retailers should have the dark grey units now.

    All my cards are white and are English flashed. I haven't seen a black one unless its an older make.

    i bought 2 a few months ago from gameyeah, they came in white.
    mine got stolen along with my ds so i was gonna get a black ds and i wanted a card to match.
    i'm just going to order from gameyeah i guess..
    i can paint it black if it bothers me that much *shrug*

    Mine was white and english shipped from kicktrading.ca

    I bought an M3 at the same time I bought the R4 but my M3 was black so I just switched the casing and stickers lol.

    I actually e-mailed the R4 team and asked if I could purchase a new black cart case with the sticker but they said no.

    granted I'm right near colour blind these days, it looks black.

    then again, I'm playing with an original DS, so the colour of the Cart is the least of my problems.

    I just got one from Gameyeaaah a week or two ago and it came black. This was the US website. Oh and no way was I paying $20 for shipping. Ugh... [​IMG]
