    I was hoping for a good flash card that is capable of running GBA games as well as NDS, or possibly even SNES roms. Do you have any ideas besides the dstwo+?

    The normal DSTWO is the only option. Only the DSTWO/DSTWO+ had an on-board CPU and RAM for GBA/SNES/DS

    I personally use nds-card.com, but it might be a better idea to save and buy the DSTWO+ or use ROM injections if you have a New3DS

    Thanks for the tip. Funny enough, it's still more worth for that and a good enough micro SD card then it is for the SNES classic :P (btw I have an original 3DS)

    Just be forewarned, the DSTWO does cause battery drain in sleep when using the 3DS.

    On the same note of the SNES classic's price, while it would be nice to have an upgraded 3DS, it is still cheaper to run not only SNES games, but GBA and NDS games of my free choosing =)

    You can choose for free but you can't make a living being broke.

    Does it have an on-board CPU/RAM or are you using the limited emulators?

    To be honest, I was actually there was an R4 Clone that claimed to be a DSTWO clone, but google wasn't providing anything.
    I wasn't sure if it was rumor or not, so I was hoping this would be actually help in my search.
    Edit: I could be thinking of the iSmartMM :unsure:

    It does have upgraded hardware. but I am not sure if the emulators use that extra power.
    I could be wrong on that one since buying a DSTWO+ isn't worth my money to test it.
