    Hi guys

    During the next week i will receive a new 3ds XL. Actually i read a lot of topics about new flashcards, old and discontinued flashcards, fakes, clones... the result is that i'm getting mad!! :wacko:

    My simple question is the following : which is the best flashcard i can actually buy and where to buy from ?
    I live in Italy so the supplier shall be able to ship in my country.

    I read something about the gateway card but someone says that it's too buggy for now and DSTWO is still better. What about ACE or R4s ? Please HELP ME!

    DSTWO is the best card, but it only plays DS games (no 3DS games). As for getting it, I use realhotstuff.com, but I don't know if they ship to Italy or not.

    Thank you very much to you all.. it's fantastic to receive such an unanimous suggestion!

    Some questions :

    1) realhotstuff.com and realhotstuff.hk are the same supplier ?

    2 ) Shall i wait to check the firmware of the 3DS before buying the DSTWO or does it make no difference ?

    3 ) Any one knows this site : http://www.chipspain.com/es/consola...1669/supercard-dstwo-microsdhc-32gb-8479.html ?

    4 ) In the link above, it is shipped with a SDHC 32Gb class 4... do you think class 4 is fast enough ?

    Thank you in advance

    4) Yes it is enough, I am using the same one without any problems.
    Please know that you cant use DSTwo to play 3DS games, only DS games!

    1) I'm quite sure they are. I've ordered from both. COM is located in America and HK is in Hong Kong, but I believe they are run by the same people.
    2) Doesn't matter. DSTWO is compatible with the latest firmware. You may need to update the DSTWO, but that's pretty simple and doesn't require any additional hardware.

    Thank you all again.. i think i will order from discoazul.com (they ship in Italy and they are from Spain), its' better for me to order in a European country in order to avoid additional duties.
