I've been upset since like last year ever since AK2i stopped giving updates for the 3DS. Is it ever going to be continued? Or should I just go ahead and blow my money on a Supercard DSTwo?

Nope, iirc the Ak2i doesnt have enough memory left to run after the update that blocked it.
(That might not be correct) The actual AK2i hardware cant support it however.

I had an Acekard 2i sitting inside my DS Lite. I just bought a used 3DS XL and I was excited to see that the firmware was Version 4.2.0-9U because the Acekard 2i will work with firmware up to Version 4.3. After flashing the card to support the 3DS XL, it runs games perfectly. The other cool thing is that the firmware is old enough so if and when the Gateway 3DS is released I can take advantage of that as well. I have quite a few customers on eBay looking for an Acekard 2i, so if you want I can put you into contact with them if you would like some money to put towards a SuperCard DSTWO because that looks like the only DS flashcard with 3DS support that will continue to be supported. Not only that, it can also emulate GBA games as well.

Does the 3DS update to the newest firmware when a new game is inserted? I might hold off on my new 3ds games since it will kill my Ak2i apparently. :/

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
