    It's not used often, but you can't deny that it is useful is some situations.

    The general thing with flashcarts is that if you have one most of your mates have one as well/

    Frankly, I never use download play. But that is because few of my friends have a DS.

    I basically never use it. It has only been on trips such as flights/trains/buses etc. when someone else with a DS was near and we decided to have a game together. [​IMG]

    I've only ever used it once, just to see it work. I've used download demo stations more.....and I rarely use that either.

    Some games ONLY have download play as an option.

    These are the ones that the flashcart makers should focus on getting compatibility with first, then the others.

    It is quite usefull, I expect on the next portable system there will be the option to save several downloaded demos internally, rather than them being lost when you turn off the system.

    I used to use download play back at highschool, that was because I had all the games and all the nubs had was sm64ds, but now I only know 4 people with DS's and two of them are my brothers [​IMG]

    plus they both have R4s [​IMG]

    Well, I know Mario64 and Bomberman who have that, and both have download play working with most flashcarts.

    And I use Download Play yeah, my friends don't have many games for the DS, so I use the download play to multiplayer games like Mario Kart with them, I have the real game myself though, my current flashcart doesn't support mk, but I think it's quite handy to have download play supported.

    In Canada it's too cold to bring your DS outside. So no, used it probably three times in my whole life.

    I still can't get Super Mario 64 DS's Download Play to work on my M3 Simply [​IMG] Bomberman works though, I love it!

    I use Download Play a lot because my little brother has a DS without a flashcart. We have to use Download Play in many cases. He has Mario Kart though, so we can play that together multicart.

    Most of my friends don't have the original carts nor ways to use backups, so we use Download play quite a lot, thanks to my DS-Q, I mean X.
