So I want to buy a New3DS! I'm not sure if I want the normal one or the XL, would probably have to hold both to know for sure. I want to use a flashcart, run homebrew and game backups, and generally make it do everything Nintendo wouldn't approve of. 1) Am I able to just go to the store and buy one, or do I need to get one with a specific firmware? 2) Is there a difference between N3DS and N3DSXL? (aside from the obvious physical differences) 3) Do regions matter? I'm In North America (Canada) 4) Can I update the console and the games without breaking stuff? I like keeping things updated. 5) Is there an all-in-one flashcart or do I need to buy one for NDS games and one for 3DS games? 6) Can backed up games play online like they could on NDS? 7) If I have homebrew/backups on my system, can I still use the E-Shop and play retail games online? 8) How's emulation going? I'd want to emulate NES, SNES, GB/GBC, GBA, and if it's possible N64. 9) Do I need to buy a specific game to make things work? That cubic ninja game is over 100 bucks D: 10) Is there anything else I should be asking? Sorry for the wall of questions, I know there's info out there but I don't know much about 3DS, hard to use FAQs without some base knowledge to build on haha Apologies if this is in the wrong place, wasn't sure which board to post it on.
