    because it is still not hacked and cannot use homebrew. do you think I should buy another nintendo DS? I like to use nintendo DS as retro video game emulator.

    It's a wonderful console. Are you really complaining that you can only use it for what it's intended for?

    How did you not research something like this?

    Keep your 3DS XL, and by a supercard DSTWO - then you can play NDS games, and you have the SNES/GBA emulators that are enhanced on the DSTWO, along with all other DS homebrew. About $40 or so, but totally worth it.

    1. The 3DS is hacked. Check out Gateway 3DS.
    2. Technically, there is homebrew. Look here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/merry-christmas-have-some-ram-dumping.359697/ . More homebrew will come in the future.
    3. There are plenty of DS-mode flashcarts for the 3DS that let you run DS games and DS homebrew and emulators just like on a regular DS so there is nothing you can do on a DS that can't be done on a 3DS apart from running things from slot-2.

    I have bought gateway and can play 3DS roms, however I just bought it because I will move to other NZ region (whose game is ridiculously expensive) with my US/Asia 3DS XL. DS games look more interesting at the moment.

    the reason I bought a handheld is because I want to explore the homebrews since I don't play games so much during my younger days (just like I did with my pspgo) and see how far they can extend the handheld capabilities. anyway, thanks for the recommendation, I will look up for DStwo (have bought r4 for 10 bucks, wish I asked this before purchasing)

    I just bought an iPhone and I'm disappointed that it can't run Android.

    theres a thread around these parts , demo'ing the use of the blue gateway card to play DS roms , if you have a Gateway then look into this before buying another cart.

    eriol33 an r4 is only good for nds games not 3ds games unless you get the R4i Gold Deluxe kit which comes with a NDS mode Flash cart and a 3DS mode Flash Cart, but the DStwo does have a CPU used for gba/snes games which is not present in R4i Gold non deluxe kit
