    Well I was headed to class the other day and I see this guy with a DS. I'm like "ah what the heck why not check out what he's playing"... As I get closer though I see a huge white piece of plastic protruding from slot 2... My eyes widened [​IMG] .. my heart stops... ITS A GBA MOVIE PLAYER! He was playing Super Mario Bros. on NESDS. Man I laughed so hard!

    I saw him later and he told me " dude just google 'ds flash cards'" [​IMG] . LOL I told him I already knew the ds scene inside out and have a CycloDS Evolution with an EZFlash V expansion pak.. He told me that I have the best one there is [​IMG] ... that was pretty much it... But Man....


    I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A FLASHCARD IN THIS SCHOOL WITH 1000 STUDENTS [​IMG] LOL!

    At my school, I am the only one with a flashcart. Grade 7, and no one else knows anything.

    No one older than me in my school and no one younger than me in my school...

    They all get lost when I try explaining it to them xD

    I know 2 people with flashcarts.

    Mainly because I sold each of them an Acekard 2 for £20.

    Back in my high school year (Which was just last year), only a handful of people heard of them, and only one person among them has one. The only other people I know that has one is my cousin and my other cousin, who's brother-in-law who gave her husband an acekard 2.

    Every single person I know with a DS has a flashcard of some kind, from my 6 year old nephew to my 61 year old mother. Indeed the ability to play... ahem... 'backup' games is the main reason they bought a DS in the first place.

    Some Asian kid in my math class had one. He would always sing songs he would listen to in Moonshell. It was uncomfortable.

    i think its better that way if everyone knew I think nintendo would go nuts. i think since we are "in the know" it just seems like a lot of people know about it

    Whenever I go to cons I always see microSD slots whenever someone's playing a DS.

    Just the sort of crowd I'd expect to run into.

    I have never met anyone in school or work who even knew what they are. Well, outside of the two friends who I "hooked up" with M3 simply when I got the M3 REAL.

    Lol on that one... I recently modded a psp battery to flash custom firmware to the psp. It was my friends, but he was like "dude! is there anything you can't get modded!?" My response: An iPhone.

    I have one friend who has a flashcart IRL. [​IMG] If the DS were more popular around here I'm certain most people would have flashcarts. Software and genuine games are rarely ever bought in Romania due to low earnings.

    I would say that over half of the people at my school with a DS have or know what a flash cart is. My school is pretty small though, there's like ~1200 students and it's a generally nerdy school.
