    Their page says yes, but everyone I've talked to says no, so what is the scoop? If I have a brand new 3DS with the latest firmware, can I use the R4 3DS on it?

    According to the responses to the questions on this page, again they say yes.

    I'd imagine that if this were true it would have already hit GBATemp's front page news right?!

    It does, but it only plays DS backups, not 3DS. To exploit 3DS mode you need firmware 4.5 or earlier.

    That's a DS flashcard (not 3DS), that indeed works on the current 3DS firmware.

    You can only play DS ROMs. The cart will not be able to run 3DS games.

    Alright, thank you all, just triple checking.
