    I can't wait really, if Acekard team was the first who make an working cart for DSi, so maybe they can do it for 3DS too.

    Hopefully we'll see some innovative home brew and emulators come around for this.

    My first official request of some humble coder with too much time on his hands... ;)

    PrBOOM Plus with 3D enhancements!!!

    From Where???
    there are still a great deal of purists who are in it for the homebrew. even if most of us enjoy emulation of 8bit systems, which in and of itself is still piracy. with that said, there aren't enough of us to ever challenge the ranks of those who simply abuse an opportunity to get something for free. when it happens, the excuses will flow like water. "i live in X country", "games are expensive", "i don't have a job", "i buy everything i download", etc. it will be inevitable and part of the process of getting great homebrew. i just hope android, smartphones, tablets, etc, haven't stolen all the good devs away. i really hope we don't see a quick year of ds homebrew ports, 1 or 2 optimizations, and then everything return back to how it is now. a scene void of new/updated gba/ds/dsi homebrew projects.

    I'm happy and sad at the same time.
    Why happy? 3DS can finally be Region Unlocked soon, and Homebrew is almost a fact.
    Why sad? Yet another device gets ruined by Pirates for sure.

    Devices don't get ruined by pirates.
    If that was the case, there would be no PC games at all. PC gaming wouldn't exist and console gaming would be slowly dying.
    Piracy doesn't cause the developers to lose money.

    If piracy would ruin a device, the ridiculously easy to hack DS could have never became the #1 system seller of all times.....
    Just saying...;)

    well, i wonder if its a save exploit, if it will even work outside of the us region.

    would be kinda cool if it was a savehack for something like... dunno, the photochannel or somewhat xD

    anyway, i'm not getting too excited, however if this emulates gba games anytime in the future, i'll get fired up too

    DS: Units sold Worldwide: 153.69 million, all models combined (as of December 8, 2012)[1] (details)
    PS2: Units sold 155.1 million, all models combined (as of March, 2012)[1]

    Anywho, assuming it does get hacked or even homebrew I think that'll be the right time to get it.

    Do DS games luck Fugly on the XL model ?(Or GBA/GBC games on the DSTWO?)

    With the Thunderjuggling Cugglecats!
    After a long and hard battle, the 3DS firmware gets hacked. I'm SO in for some 3DS CFW once it comes out! And while I probably won't be a 3DS scener, i'll be sure to download loads of demo's and homebrews! Of coarse, i'll still be within the DS scene if you want to see me making homebrews and demo's!
