I've got a DSi. For some reason, I want to get a 3DS. I don't know why myself, there's no games coming out I want or anything. But I want it. I've found some stuff in my closet I can trade in to help mitigate the cost, but I'm going to be using it mainly with my Acekard 2i. I don't plan on visiting the shop often, though if I get it soon enough I'll take Excitebike for free, and I'll take Zelda Four Sword when it comes out, etc. So most of the time, I'll not be connected to the internet. And I'll only update if I know it's safe. But, is it safe? Is it really going to tell Nintendo I played Danny Phantom for nine hours without them going "hmmm". Does the 3DS use the joystick slider for DS games or do I have to use the D-Pad? Is the joystick slider good? I've only gotten to use a 3DS on awkward, stuck to the wall angles so I don't know. I know the Acekard 2i works on it for now, so it'd be another system update to block it if they are going to block it. Can the guys at Acekard unblock it, maybe? That may be one too many hypothetical though. So.. is it safe? Is now as good a time to buy as any? Does it look sharp? I know it's a dark system but my 3DS is black. Is it a matte finish? DO I WANT ONE?! SOMEONE HELP ME!!
