I think I know the answer to this, but I'm going to ask anyway...

    I'm still using the acekard 2i on my 3DS. I haven't updated my console yet, for obvious reasons. However, I am considering getting a new card because of the slow updates (mainly eyeing the DSTwo). Now here's my question, will the DSTwo (or any other currently available flashcard) work for 3DS games when rom loading finally becomes available? Or will I have to buy a new card for that (I'm guessing this is the case)? Also, how long (in months or years) do you think it will take for a 3DS flashcard to come out (I'm thinking probably a year or two, but I want input)? I don't want to buy a card just to have to buy a new one in a few months.

    Finally, which flashcard do you recommend (for price, update speed, and compatibility)?

    Thanks for the help. Just an FYI, I do have two DSlite consoles lying around just in case I update my 3DS accidentally (or without updating my flashcard). That might influence your answer.

    Thanks :)

    You DSTwo will never play 3ds rom ... and no one cares about how many DSLite you got.

    He wasn't saying it to show off, he just said that he has them if he needs to update his card.
    And to answer your original question, no.

    Since must people so far have been assholes, no one currently knows when the 3DS will be hacked. What I do think is there probably won't be flashcarts, it will more then likely be either a software or hardware hack. The DSTWO is good, get one/

    Considering there is a sticky to answer all questions these people ask on a daily basis.. I feel the community is justified in their crude responses.

    .... And to add another answer. NO.

    The dstwo is renowned for being one of, if not the best card to date.

    No it's not hacked, and we don't know when it will be. Read the stickies.

    If you probably knew the answer, then you probably shouldn't have posted the thread.

    Just a little tip: If you think it shouldn't be posted, don't post it.
