    What, this came out of nowhere... (lock if already posted...)



    Looks real... but who knows...

    Edit. From the site:

    EDIT: Rumour debunking round-up by raulpica:
    • Some members keep stating that the flashcard (if real) will require one microSD for each game, and that the microSD needs to be of the same exact size of the ROM. GaryOpa (trusted member of the scene) directly debunks that here.
    • This probably doesn't remove Region Lock, since that would require a 3DS-mode exploit. The cart somehow fools the system that a real cart is inserted, so no mods (region-free, hacks, etc.) should be allowed.
    • The estimated release should be in two weeks, yet again according to GaryOpa.

    One's inner self
    place holder for big comment before idiots spam just crap about what posts are going to be about

    Finally this materialized

    it is indeed not a fake but all the hardware you want for this has yet to be shown

    ideally what this card does is make the Game Chip a Micro SD card
    the card will have to be formatted correctly and the right size (eg. you will need, 512mb,1GB,2GB,4GB cards)
    each card can only hold 1 rom at a time, as it takes up the whole space of the card
    surely you get the point here of whats its doing

    the next thing is Save Data
    as you can see in the video there is only 1 save chip and thats built in, so if you change the game MicroSD without backing up and Dumping the Save data with a Save tool BYE BYE save
    as it is wiped as the game recognizes it as corrupt so deletes it
    so they will either have to provide a method of extracting/dumping the save or you get a R4i Save Dongle or something that does the job

    basically this is a 1:1 clone sort of deal so only 1 at a time, no homebrew, no mods, no save tweaks

    Nintendo will most likely just block this with an update to check the game Chip ID and then fail to boot it

    enjoy :D
    but this is a sole piracy deal here

    Not saying it's real... But where is the loader? One ROM per SD is a little impractical.

    Very interesting, for some reason I think it is real.

    for normal eyes, the video seems pretty good.

    Waiting for a expert to analyze it,

    Looks good to me, but I'm no video expert. One ROM per micro SD card is a little impractical, but workable. If it's real, I'm sure someone else will perfect it, with a user interface,loading multiple games from one card. It's a start, and a great one, if indeed it is real.

    It seems surprisingly real.
    But let's see.

    I have my doubts this would work like this...

    Makes sense. So, basically you'll need the flashcard, various sizes microSD cards and a save dumper so you can backup your saves in case you want to play another game.

    Well, it's a start heh (if real ofc lol)

    Ok so my questions are as follows.
    How does this just "work"? straight up "work"? no custom menu to boot into, no special "disguised" game like the DSTWO and stuff... However that might explain why it can only be one game.

    Works with "all" roms to date? How can there be not a single rom that has problems? No AP, Whitescreens, whatever?

    Well, even if it's a fake, at least the video is pretty well-made: I couldn't see any evident errors or cuts, which is pretty surprising.
    Could have been better w/o the nails though.
