    Hi

    Newbie here.

    I bought a nintendo 3ds black from the US (US model), was cheap. Well put it this way came from another country, not the UK.

    I am wondering can i play UK games on the US console? Or will i need the R4/AceKard whichever card fits and then download any region games on to the card?

    the system firmware is Version 1.1.0-0U

    Thanks.

    PS: If the post violates any rules im sorry, mod/admin can modify my post.

    You can play out of region DS games, but not 3DS games. There is currently no way to play 3DS games from another region, and there is no flashcart for 3DS games.

    will there be a way around this in the future?

    So in the meantime if i want to play 3DS games they have to be US version only?

    thank you for the prompt and excellent answer.

    Nobody knows.

    And correct. You'll only be able to play games released in North America.

    No, you can not play EU-region or JP-region games on your US-model.

    In time however, this will be possible but that will probably take some time so don't count on it in the near future.

    Actually, I hope they don't crack it because then that will cause developers to move away from the 3DS and not really make any games for it.

    the reason ds has so many shitty games because Nintendo let anything go aka cash cow it is not the cause of the warezing.

    still, i also wish it won't be cracked to soon. not the rom support anyways. but for vids and whatnots, hell yes. just no to rom support and eshop titles. we need to let Nintendo get their money so they won't be so grubby and maybe choose to be nice to gamers. sort of.

    Believing Warez is the reason Nintendo does not relaase good games on their consoles is the sign of a newfag. The reason is because Nintendo does not allow a lot of 3rd party developers to make their games for them. Geez.

    @b1gj4v: If I were you, I would buy a Supercard DStwo in the meantime. It will keep you entertained until 3DS games are able to be dumped as ROMs.

    Exactly. Walk into ANY EB games of Gamestop and look at the DS section. That enough is proof.
