    I'm going to wait until a different team has reverse-engineered it and begun mass production.

    I have no interest in this flashcart, especially at the price they're selling it at.

    tbh, if it was half the price it is now i still wouldn't make the purchase.

    Right behind you
    Right now I'm strongly leaning towards no, unless the review here really surprises me. I highly doubt there going to keep it updated.

    I have one preordered and can't wait to get it, mostly out of curiosity.

    As of right now, no. If the team shows that they are able to update the flashcart whenever Nintendo blocks it, then yes.
    If I'm gonna waste $80 on something I want it to work for the foreseeable future.

    I don't own a 3DS yet, so I voted no of course lol

    Doesn't seem like enough reason to worry about a flash card yet? On the DS I picked up flash cards because I couldn't carry all of my games with me anymore...

    When proper flashcarts roll out or when the Gateway is updated to the point where it can run unsigned code, I may very well throw some money in Nintendo's face and buy a 3DS as well as a flashcart. For now, I'm not particularily interested.

    Price is too high and doesn't work on latest firmwares.

    I am waiting for the bigger better deal, hopefully the supercard team enter the game or better yet a softmod becomes available.

    I really think some people got spoiled on the prices of DS and late GBA flashcarts, because the price is more than reasonable. However, the team behind it seems somewhat sketchy, and since somehow I've ended up going 90% digital anyways, it's not something I really need; SMT IV aside, all my games are already on an SD card. Unlike other flashcarts, this thing is purely a piracy device - it doesn't do anything the 3DS can't already. No homebrew or anything. There's just no reason to pay for this when I can buy digital and not miss out on anything.

    Not until much later down the road when the 3DS is next to dead and Nintendo is making a new system.

    It's not for me. I already get most of my games for free, and even if I didn't, I can afford to buy them.

    If it did a fraction of what the dstwo could do then maybe but since it is extremely limited on what it can do and the fact it is not truly homebew just a 1:1, I see more disadvantages than advantages with it right now maybe after in goes through some major improvements will I think about it.

    As a Flashcard collector, I need a few.

    Its the first cart for the 3DS that will play 3DS roms and current compatibility is not bad.

    No I won't because partly of the 80 dollar price tag plus my 3DS doesn't have 4.5 firmware plus something else will probably come out that's cheaper and more efficient. This is just the start!D:

    I don't know. Help.
    No, for now this cart won't satisfy me. It needs improvements.
