    What do you do with all your DS games now that you got a flashcart? I was thinking of selling all of mine since I probably won't need them ever again.

    How many do you have? I only purchased about four or five before getting a flashcart, so I didn't bother selling them.

    I mean you have already supported Nintendo by getting the games in the first place. So i don't see why selling them so maybe someone could enjoy them would be such a bad thing. Just remember to get those saves!!

    I have 7 DS games. They are....

    Super Mario 64 DS
    Sonic Rush
    Metroid Prime Hunters
    Mario Kart DS
    Brain Age
    Big Brain Academy
    Brain Age 2

    Is there a way to transfer their saves over to my flashcart?

    No keep them out of the market to reduce the damage already done by pirating. This way there will be less copies available overall and the people are more likely to purchase new games which helps Nintendo and the developers in the end.

    eBay 'em off separately. SM64, MKDS, and MPH all easily go for 25-30 bucks used on eBay. You can also bundle Brain Age 1 and 2 and Big Brain Academy for a bit of more success.

    trade them in for part exchange on another DS or go for something like GUITAR HERO ON TOUR with a proper grip instead of breaking yer fingers to trying to play using the buttons hack [​IMG]

    This guy is really stupid.

    Don't even bother selling them if you can't get a decent/good price.

    In the UK we have a games shop called GAMESTATION where you can sell your games and consoles you dont want anymore (price varies), but you get more on trade in. Maybee you have something like that in the USA

    1. Sell for a good price.
    2. Trade for something you want.
    3. If Options #1 and #2 work, just keep the games and let the developers make more money so they can develop more games we can play on our flashcarts.

    I hope game Developers make use of the NDS to its full potential,I mean there have been complaints about developers quickly making average simply desighned games. If they made great games and full use of the NDS i would be happy and proud to buy and own them

    I sold all mine except pokemon diamond cause i put so much work into the save and when i back it up through my 3 in 1 for some reason nobody can help with the save just isn't accepted by the backup of the game. I tried the save converter and everything but it won't work.

    I kept a few. Mainly Pokemon Diamond, because I spent so much time on it and I don't want to lose my Pokemans.
    Also, I kept the Super Mario 64 DS from launch and the Metroid prime Hunters Demo because you can't sell that.

    Although I'm sort of an idiot for selling my Dawn of Sorrow launch release, because I heard it's worth a lot more than the $16 EBGames paid me. [​IMG]

    How much is Dawn of Sorrow about now? Because I have it and I am looking to trading it in.

    Hmm, I may sell my DS for a DSlite. Once I get my flash card I guess I will get rid of games I don't want and hopefully have enough credit for one, along with my DS.

    Once I got a flashcart, I got rid of all my official DS carts. Sold some, traded some in. In hindsight, I should have kept Castlevania PoR, but meh I beat it anyway, so I don't really care about it anymore.
