    The DS TWO is considered to be the best flashcart so far...knowing this I went and bought it right away, I used this site since it uses paypal: http://lightake.com/products.do/category.Wholesale_Supercard-235 but...looking again at the site, there seems to be a massive amount of bootleg games and stuff...could the SuperCard I just ordered be a fake as well? That's what I've been thinking about lately...but considering the $35 price...i'd say it's quite an expensive fake, that is if there are fakes around...anyone who knows about this, can you share what you know?

    The fake itself may not have been expensive for them. Maybe they're just charging a lot to make a major profit.

    Price doesn't determine whether it's fake or not.
    Also, I've never heard of that site. Is there a reason you didn't just go to shoptemp?

    Well, there you go. Just be careful next time, and ask first before buying.

    well I actually asked...a person in this forum linked me to the site...>_> I'd still like some more opinions on this though

    ...I seem to have found something http://shoptemp.net/news/449/Supercard-DS-Two-Card-for-Nintendo-3DS%7B47%7DDS%7B47%7DDS-Lite%7B47%7DDSi-%7B47%7DDSi-XL.html this link seems to suggest that the DS Two cards sold at Lightake are genuine...I've also found other posts on the forums about people suggesting Lightake to buy it...but what do you all think?

    well i got my dstwo from realhotstuff it cost me like 39 or 40 $ ,and i knew there were sites that ha it for $35 ,but they were all going to ship it from china, realhotstuff shipped from new jersey and i am in boston, so it was worth it for me to get it much faster, they has insurance for $1 extra which i also opted for, and free shipping,

    im not sure where you are, but might be something to consider when you order

    Too late I already ordered...it seems like it's gonna take a while since the site is indeed from China...anyway I still need to hear from someone who actually bought their DS TWO from Lightake...they say fake DS TWO cards don't exist though...

    yes they do exist ,there are knock offs and supposedly its a similar method o detect them as it is to detect a counterfeit acekard 2

    if the sticker is not sitting flat and there are the 2 chips sticking out then that means its counterfeit , im sure you can find a thread on the differences and photos

    but you said you ordered from lighttake before and it was legit, and tbhm i think i have seen this cite alot and i highly doubt you will get a counterfeit card from them
    worst case is that you gat an older stock where the card is not updated to latest fw ,the new ones are being updated before they get shipped

    As I said...I was advised to buy there by one of the members on this site, as soon as it arrives...I'll check if it's genuine or not, and depending on that, report the item to paypal and get my money back...hopefully it won't come to that, but again, I still want to know if anyone here's bought a DS TWO there >_>
