    Hello,,

    first time poster and first time getting the 3DS for my kids.

    I just had a question. I am getting the 3DS XL and saw that there are 2? different R4i Gold cards..

    R4i gold 3DS for 3DS / DS / DSL / DSi / DSi XL V1.4.5

    and
    R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe Edition starter Revolution Play 3DS Games


    what exactly is the difference between the two ? if i wanted to load 3DS games onto it ?

    The latter is for loading 3DS ROMs... The former is for loading DS ROMs...
    And I believe the R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe also comes with a standard R4i Gold 3DS in the form of a "starter card"?

    they are trying their best to confuse the fuck out of everyone with their stupid R4 brandings.
    and it's working! avoid R4-anything at all costs !

    The same question to me, just curious why an administrator "hated" the team(R4i team) that much, isn't it weird ? :wacko:

    He is not referring to a r4 team in particular but to all the r4 rebranded crap around, if it fits you, wear it.

    Btw I find weirder that you recommend to a user the card of the team you represent. :glare:

    You are right, it's even more weirder if i don't recommend to a user the card of the team I represent. :)

    Yeah I know and I recognize the r4i gold card for ds games is a good card, I just ask people to be a little objective. ;)

    I have to agree with you again, anyway the team behind the card shouldn't be an attacked objective in any case, hopefully everyone here realized it. :)

    lol sorry didnt know that my question would turn this into a flame war.... ;)

    i didn't want to open the 3ds since its going to be a gift for the kids but i opened it anyways and found that its 5.1.0-11U so I cant use the "R4i Gold 3DS Deluxe" anyways :(

    Oh that sucks, sorry for your loss. At least you figured that out before ordering one.


    The fanboy is strong in this one.

    No 3DS cards work, but if you want a DS cart, go for it. Just make sure you know it's been updated for 7.0, or works with it.
