    I'm debating whether or not I should buy an Acekard 2i for my 3DS or not. I know down the road there's gonna be a new card out some time that will more than likely be required to play 3DS games. But I have a bunch of DS Lite games I want to play but don't want to hoard around with me in an embarassing carry case.

    So what do you guys think? Wait? Or Get an Acekard2i for now?

    get one, its going to take a loooong time before a 3ds flash card roles around i think. And even so, whos to say it will have the ability to emulate ds lite games?

    Or get a supercard dstwo so you can play gba/snes games on your 3ds as well [​IMG]

    Actually scratch that I might not need an acekard2i. I think I found my original R4, would that work to play my DS Lite games on my 3DS?

    Nope, an original R4 card will only work on a DSPhat/Lite.

    I would buy an acekard, because the acekard is hands down the best deal for how much it costs, it has GREAT compatibility and a very diligent dev team that had a 3ds 2.0 update out a matter of hours and minutes after nintendo released the 3ds update.

    Yeah looks like I'll be buying one from ValueDeluxe now since they are cheapest.

    I don't know if I'd trust that site, I'd go with zhuzhuchina instead.

    I shouldn't have ****ing trusted it, cause now I wake up this morning and have to change my paypal account password and add a security question because I've been "randomly selected" and for security.

    I then find out someone from "Non US" (The Seller) charged me $12.40 that's fine that's what I authorized (It hasn't gone through on my banks end yet).

    I THEN find out someone also from "Non US" (Probably The Same Guy) charged me $520.00, pisses me off (It hasn't gone through on my banks end yet, need to call them tomorrow).

    I've disputed the $520 dollar charge and am awaiting response from the moron who tried to charge it upon me. I've also cancelled my order from Value Deluxe, I don't trust that god damn place.

    Well I sent an email to the seller telling him I don't want the order I made last night gave him the order number and stuff. Going to call my bank tell them not to approve anything having to do with paypal.

    Just got an email back from someone at Value Deluxe telling me that my order has already been processed and shipped this afternoon. I told them I wanted to cancel cause I found a reliable shipper in the USA for faster shipping but I told them I guess since it's already been shipped I'll just wait for it to arrive.

    They did tell me if I wanted to return it when I receive it I am free to do so as well but I don't know if I'll return it probably not.

    As for the charge of $520 I'm not sure who the hell did that I'm assuming it was Value Deluxe but I don't know yet, I've filed a dispute with Paypal and will be notifying my bank of it tomorrow morning.
