    The Acekard seems to be back ordered all over the internet. Is there any in-person retailer that sells them in NYC?
    Thanks in advance

    [​IMG] no you probably won't find one on account that there used to pirate games but not illegal themselves.

    I know there are places in China town that sell Flashcards/carts, I was just wondering if there were any specific stores.

    Register at your local bank for a debit card and buy it at modchipcentral.com I just ordered mine for about 44$ and it should be here by wednesday/thursday the latest..I'm in the NY area but the only place that would have it is Video games NY and they overprice EVERYTHING..it's located on 6th st and 3rd ave

    From Where???
    realhotstuff is in NJ, and they ship priority. however they are out of stock on the ak2i. it might be worth waiting a week to see if it comes back. anything you order from dx will take 12+ days to get to NY.

    I just got my Acekard 2i from Gaingame.com for a little under $35. I live in NYC too and I ordered it sunday and got it today (tuesday).
    They took it out of the packaging to ship it so it was just the flashcart, a microsd usb reader, and couple of packing peanuts. I don't know why they took it out of the packaging.

    Also, the back of the cart looks different from the one reviewed on this site.
    This is the one in the review: Picture
    This is the one I recieved: Picture
    Did a quick search and it seems like there are just several variants of the Acekard so this isn't really a problem at all.

    The microsd usb reader is one of those "world's smallest" ones and, the one I got at least, you should not use it. I put my microsd in it and it took me 10 minutes and pliers to remove it. Maybe I'm missing something about how to take it out or the one I got was just too snug.

    I don't really see anything bad about Gaingame. Fast shipping if you're in NY (but gotta pay tax). But I haven't had to deal with a return or anything yet.
