    I just decided im getting a Nintendo 3DS when it comes out.
    Im getting it Aqua Blue.. Since its the only Color apart from black but black inst exactly a color by definition.
    Currently DS mode is availiable with flashcards, but not DSi Mode or 3DS Mode
    So, Should I get a 3DS with a flashcard or a 3DS with official game? My money is $320

    If flash card,
    whats flashcard
    ??

    If 3DSGame,
    what game
    ??

    Also: Dear mods, i dont know if this is the correct thread to ask this so sorry. This was the one that got the closes to my question.

    Thanks!

    Do you already own a flashcart and a DS?
    If so, you might as well purchase the 3DS and a legit game.

    I'd go with the actual game. You don't know when 3DS mode will be hacked.

    Also, this belongs to the blogs section.

    No. I trade my Nintendo DS with SuperCardDSone for a PSP slim, and i Sold that PSP.

    This is all i got.

    Shouldn't a DS flash card be able to play DS games, and DS homebrew?

    A flashcart that works on the 3DS will be able to play DS games and homebrew. Don't worry.
    I would suggest you don't purchase a flashcart for the 3DS until more flashcarts are updated to support the 3DS.

    Buy a game.
    Give your money to people who invested it into the product they're selling you, rather than people dependent on exploits released freely, to allow you to pirate games using their device.

    Yeah, I've had my DS and Wii hacked for a very long time, but I don't think I'm going to do any of that stuff with the 3DS.

    There's too many online features that I want to use, and with the auto-updates and stuff. It's probably less work to just buy the games.

    It will probably be like the DS. Flashcarts will be made after a while, but they will be expensive and won't be too great, then after like 2 years it will be as easy as a DSTwo or Acekard to hack a 3DS.

    They won't auto-update.

    They will lock out the eShop most likely until you update to the newest version though.
