    Hey :)

    Just got a 3DS XL. I'm looking for flash carts right now. Any flash carts you guys can recommend? I also got the system with Pokemon X. Just checked the settings and I'm currently running Ver. 6.1.0-10E.

    Thanks!

    DSTWO, that's the best DS flashcard right now.

    If you do not wish to spend the extra money on the DSTWO an R4i Gold will do the trick.

    Just keep in mind that currently, your firmware version only allows some DS flashcarts to run. These are carts that run DS games. Currently, the only flashcart that runs 3DS games is the Gateway, which is only compatible (currently) with firmwares 4.1-4.5.

    As far as what I'd recommend, the DSTWO hands down.

    DSTWO for your DS games and everything under that in terms of power is the only game in town at the moment, aside from the cheapo ones that don't play GBA games or have other tons of awesome features of the DSTWO.

    Just spring a little extra cash for the DSTWO. It's worth it.

    DSTWO, huh? Any recommendations for reputable retailers that won't screw you over with cheap pieces of crap/knockoffs (so you actually get a good product)?

    Excellent, the DSTWO looks to be the best of the bunch (in my opinion) and works with 6.x firmware on the 3DS since I left my DS Lite at home :P Any reason why the official site has two "versions" of the card (ones that say 3DS and others that don't)? I only ask since under DSTWO, I see "Super DSTWO" and "Super Card + SD"

    I have yet to see a DSTWO clone show up.

    seller rep might your only concern.

    dont' be confused by their wording, there is only one ds2. they are just making the point that it works on the 3ds.

    I'll use the official sponsor, though I'm confused as to why there's a 3DS-specific version http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=135 when there other versions of the same thing on the site.

    Got ninja'd. :P

    http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=135 Right? $42 ain't bad.

    They want to emphasize that it works on a 3DS.

    I meant when they release a firmware update to support newer firmware but I should have said that so my bad I well aware of what firmware GW currently supports.

    you are talking about the gateway? they will need to find an exploit that works on the 3ds firmwares above 4.5. they claim they are doing this but can it be done? we all hope so but it remains to be seen.
