    I don't want the 3DS flashcart to run DS games, I want the 3DS flashcart to run JUST 3DS games and take full advantage of the 3DS hardware. When will we get a flashcart like that?

    Within now and about 5 years. But just count on the 5 years so you won't get disappointed.
    It took about 2-4 years to get to the current DS flashcards.

    Everyone who is asking this question act like they don't know the answer, so to answer your question...
    No one knows, and it may take several months before we get something that works.

    I'd say june-july. In a little more pessimistic approach, by this autumn, but not a full-fledged plug-and-play card, but something much more complex (like FlashMe or slot-2 pass devices were).

    I have insider information that a 4DS card will be released December 12th, 1965, at 4:76 and 98 seconds (give or take). Unfortunately it will be made of pancakes.



    Okay seriously nobody knows. While some flash cart teams may claim they're putting out a 3DS cart, it will run in DS or DSi mode, not 3DS mode. They're just calling it a 3DS cart because it runs on the 3DS, and they want to get sales.

    I dont expect "Flash carts" to exist. Atleast not in the form that we know them.

    I expect (And am hoping) to see Flash Carts that are made ONLY to modify the 3DS's firmware. You put the Cart in, Press the "A" Button, Accept some terms that it's not their fault your DS Burst into flames, wait a few minutes, and then play 3DS and DS Roms straight from the 3DS's SD Card slot.

    That's what i hope for, and thats what i think we're going to see.

    How about like a couple years from now?
    Better yet, how about buying the games for once?

    Nice BTTF reference, dude [​IMG] But... that was 1955 [​IMG]

    Well, the DSi took two years (iEvo, we still don't have NAND and SD(?) access). Expect the same or longer for the 3DS.

    what you have to do is this, you need to find a big guy, who never had a girlfriend for obvious reasons, and you need to charm him into marrying you.
    then, in a few years, you might be able to adopt a child to take care of and at that time, you may ask again.

    Nobody knows. But all the teams are working on it.

    I'd say about 2-5 years for a flash cart or some hack that firmware mods it.

    Off topic
    If it does end up being a game exploit that breaks the 3DS wide open. I'm gonna laugh if it is ocarina of time.
