    I've had a DSlite for a awhile, and with the newer DSi games coming out, I figure I should upgrade to it. However, I've been using a R4DS (official, not SDHC), and I know that it won't work on DSi.

    My question is which is the best card for just playing games? Do all cards have the ability to play DSi specific things (such as that WarioWare game in Japan) or is there no test material out yet? Is it possible to just run DSi Channel games off the flashcart, or something akin to installing .wads on your Wii?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I don't want to buy something only for it to not work how I want it to.

    What's the pricing of the AK2i? And what is "RTS"? When is the M3 coming out?

    And how does the DSi store thing work?

    you can check the price of ak2i from dealextreme
    is approximate 10-15 USD ~! (i can't remember the exact figure)

    RTS = real time save
    i believe it will also be available for m3 [​IMG]
    m3i 0 suppose to be out by this week [​IMG]

    DSi channel/wares?
    it is games that you need to buy/download from nintendo

    For the DSi games, do you just buy them and they get loaded onto a SD card or something?

    Sorry for the barrage of questions.

    Yah well you might be waiting for awhile because there's still been no hint of a DSi flashcart yet (atleast that I know of).

    Hi I didnt want to start another topic asking basically what a ton of others have asked before.
    Ive had a ds lite and r4 combo. Works great for me. gaming.
    Now I bought a dsi. Im going to buy a flash card for the dsi today(locally). I have 3 choices.

    - AceKard 2i
    -R4i
    -DSTTi

    Before posting I have tried to read everything I could before asking this question. Which would you guys recommend?
    Im kind of leaning toward the acekard2i more. Wiould a future update to the acekard impliment more features to it lile rts or would that require a whole new card?

    the latest firmware for U DSi is 1.3U. if you have 1.3U you're safe.
