    Just a month ago, everyone was excited about the new Supercard DStwo+, now resellers are dropping the prices on these every week.

    I just saw PeachDS dropped it to $39. yikes. It's pretty much the same price as the original DSTwo.

    Still not a bad price for anyone with a <9.2.

    It's probably the bricks. Though the bricks haven't been confirmed, I think.

    There is one guy over one the SuperCard forums who has a brick, I think. The admins are being pretty lackluster about it haha

    Huh, I might get one if they drop more and then use it as an expensive DS flashcard.

    Who cares if you can't get the latest GW fw? you can already play every rom out there, and the GW team spends more time obfuscating their fw than releasing updates/features.

    (I don't think AGB_Firm/DSiTWL support would be that complicated to add either, but look, here's cheat support nobody asked for and everybody can already use NTR for that anyways)

    Its probably just a winter promo but you're right it could be a reactionary price.

    The "classic" DSTwo from the last batch is actually a DSTwo+ in disguise, so if you found one for less than a DSTwo+, you might give it a go :)

    I thought DSTwo was out of stock everywhere and replaced with DSTwo+ already.
    Either way yeah, DSTwo+ in DS mode > DSTwo in DS mode. Just have to stay away from the GW plugin (or simply just use the card on a >9.2 3DS :P)

    Yeah but just saying $39 is great for the DSTwo as a DS-mode flashcard :P

    If it drops much more, I might just have to replace my R4. Thanks for the heads up!
