    Other than the DSTwo... is there any other cart/device that will allow you to play GB/GBC/GBA, Nes, Snes, Genesis, & DS for the New 3DS system?

    I have a DSTwo, but find it to be a very temperamental device that doesn't always like to load.

    They all can play them. The dstwo just has much better gba and snes emulators.

    although 3ds cfw can play gba games even better then the dstwo

    Do you have a ds flashcart already?

    DSTwo and Sky3DS so far. Looking for another cart to essentially replace the DSTwo.

    DStwo is still the best ds mode flashcart on the market

    r4i gold 3ds rts is a cheaper ds mode flashcart alternative if you choose to go the custom firmware route. SNES and GBA emulation suck on it though.

    Custom firmware only works on 9.2 or below.

    You could sell the sky3ds and dstwo and easily buy a used 3ds that is custom firmware compatible. Then your can play all your gba ,snes, and 3ds games for free without needing any extra hardware

    So the DSTwo is still the best overall cart for those things.

    It's not a flashcart, but if you want to emulate GB/C/A, NES, Genesis, SNES, on a handheld, a PSP might be worth considering. I can't imagine that it would cost much these days.
     
    Quantumcat and cvskid like this.

    Think I just wanna carry around one system that does it all. Pretty much N3DS does everything I want.

    Check the retroarch thread in the homebrew section.

    I'll add to this post by saying if OP could find a PS Vita 1000 series that was eCFW'able, this would be the ultimate portable emulation machine. But no NDS though, but it would take care of the rest on the list.

    On topic: a CFW'd 3DS can play GBA natively.

    Unfortunately, I can't see a native DS rom loader being developed anytime soon for the 3DS as a $5 clone cart can take care of that.

    Everything else: retroarch should take care of the rest when its stable.
