Pretty much, I've been satisfied with the R4, some say it's unsatisfactory but compared to my experiences with trying to hack a PSP, I never thought the R4 was that bad. However, I was finally persuaded to get a CycloDS. My question is, what can I do with it that I couldn't do with an R4? The last thing I want is to just use it like a cuter, plusher R4. I hope no one spent extra money just to do that.
