    I'm going to the US soon where everything is much cheaper and I'm going to buy a 3DS. (I have a dsi now) I have the action replay for the DSi but it cant play games and with homebrew I can do more but not what I want. So I want to but a hacking cartage (R4, Acekard 2) that can play nds games and maybe 3ds games if it exists. I also want to install DSOrganize homebrew on it like I did to my AR. So can I have a list of the best and their advantages and disadvantages?

    Many thanks,
    funkey100

    Come on guys. Don't be so mean to the person. Sure, there's a lot of people asking, but it's not this person's fault that it's an apparently easily overlooked sticky.

    Btw, to be on topic. Acekard 2i, Supercard DSTWO and R4i are your best bets.

    Acekard 2i and R4i
    -Cheap
    -Plays DS games and homebrew.

    DSTWO
    -Plays GBA games
    -CPU inside
    -Plays movies
    -Slow motion and Quick saving for DS Games
    -Everything the Acekard 2i and R4i can do and more.
    -Bit more costly

    Yeah, it's a short list but it gets the major points about each.

    Actually the "Nothing plays 3DS ROMS" sticky is at the top, in all caps, with a specially-colored "READ THIS FIRST" tag (the only thread with a tag), AND has a differently-colored background.

    People who don't see it are people who don't even look at the sticky list.

    DSTWO is a Mercedes, Acekard is a station wagon, R4 is a bike.

    I'd go with the DSTWO, but be aware that it costs twice as much as the Acekard 2i and takes a toll on the 3DS' battery life.

    The R4i Gold series and the Acekard are arguably the same value nowadays.

    I actually got an R4i gold 3DS and it reminds me so much my old original R4 I had long ago. I really like it and it works on my 3DS, nuff said.

    For the site's worth, the text should be read "NO FLASHCART CAN PLAY 3DS ROMS"
