GBAtemp Digest #1 The digest of all that has happened in Temp recently, hope you give it a skim. GAMING AND HACKING Crown3DS - The 1st 3DS Flashcart What has surfaced as the first 3DS Flashcart is still being taken with a bit of skepticism, but the device has proven to have some legitimacy as the team has already provided GBAtemp with some information. As of this moment, not much is known about the device, other than the fact that it can so far play only one 3DS game and is built in a cartridge like form. The team is working on dumping other games in addition to the one and expanding the compatibility of the device. They have been cautious about their device because of possible plagiarism. More news on developments will come to GBAtemp soon. Official Website[/p] Minecraft DS - DSCraft The popular independent game Minecraft has gone to the DS! User smealum has adapted the game into a DS homebrew, with 3d graphics and surprisingly smooth gameplay. Minecraft is a game which entails you to use blocks to build objects on a sandbox-type world. While this is only the classic mode of Minecraft, the developer plans to adapt the survival mode of Minecraft found in the PC version. The game is feature-packed and allows for a high level of customization, including the ability to generate worlds and create map packs and textures, much like the original game.

Ambassador Program on Nintendo Website[/p] PSVita Developments Not to leave the rival to the 3DS out of the picture, the PSV has been having a lot of developments in the recent weeks. First, the PSV is region free, which is great news for those looking to import the handheld immediately, as they can enjoy their local games once they come overseas. Next, the battery has been revealed to last 3-5 hours in gameplay mode. Finally, in terms of games, Final Fantasy X has been announced to come for the handheld, along with various other games.
