Hi! New to this forum, and it seems pretty awesome, a forum that finally supports homebrew that isn't dead. But my question is that right now I'm in Asia for a few years, and I was going to go back home to Canada for a few weeks and I was thinking I should pick up a 3DS. I haven't played any DS games or 3DS games , I've mostly been a PSP and Wii user, but I really wanna DS as to play the DS Pokemon games which I am badly craving (hardcore pokemon fan), and other games as well (chrono trigger, mario kart, etc.). When I go back to canada, I only have enough money saved up to get a Console (either 3DS or DSi) and maybe one cheap game... When I go back, I'll only have the system with me, and where I live in Asia, 3DS games are either REALLY expensive, and they are of a Japanese region, so my only option is to import, which being expensive I cannot. I was thinking for the time I'm in asia for maybe a year or two more, I should just get an r4 and strictly play DS games (since they are sold alot here, along with the fake nds carts which are really cheap). My question is that should I get a 3DS right now if I wanna play strictly DS games (through r4 or fake carts) for the next few years, or should I get a DSi. I know the r4i works fine with no problems on DSi, but on the 3ds, there is news on the internet that it can brick your system, which I really don't want to happen. So what should I pick up? Also, I know DS games look blurry and such on a 3ds. Do they still look fine, or is it really bad looking compared to DS. Thanks!
