    Any ideas? I would like it in the $30 range, shipped.

    Otherwise, where could get it to FL, USA quickest for full price?

    Thanks!

    You are not going to find one for $30, shipped other than dealextreme, at least not that I know of that is.

    RHS does have one for $40 + $7 shipping, here is a link, they are located in New Jersey
    R4 from RHS

    Gp2xstore has one for $40 as well, but I dont know how much shipping is though, and they are located in California.
    R4 from GP2

    im sure there are a couple other places to get one for about $40 + shipping, these are 2 just from the top of my head

    ModMyDS.com currently has the M3 DS Simply on special.

    ModMyDS.com Specials

    They ship from TX, so it should be quick (and fairly inexpensive).

    Yesterday I panicked and ordered 2 more (get it before the hoarders get it!):
    2 x R4 Revolution for DS - ENGLISH (R4DS) = $79.98
    Sub-Total: $79.98
    United States Postal Service (1 x 2lbs) (Parcel Post): $6.55
    Total: $86.53
    I have bought several M3 and R4s from them. They are from Pa. They usually ship fast.
    They are an authorized R4 dealer.

    What is with the hoarders? Did they go out of business or something?

    I recommend buying from realhotstuff or Gp2x. They both have promotional codes to get 5% off. Use RHS07 promo code for realhotstuff and Sosuke promo code for Gp2x.

    Wow thanks aslacker! very good to know.
    I was gonna get a R4, then I saw dealextreme out of stock along with bamboogaming.

    Then I started thinking about SuperCard DS-One v2 so now its:
    51% for SuperCard
    49% for R4

    If I decide to get R4 i'll know where to buy it [​IMG]

    Maybe I should sell him mine and get a Cyclo DS Evolution. Isn't it more robust? Like doesn't it support download play on more things, including interaction with the Wii? I'm REALLY going to be interested in playing the games that interact with the Wii...

    Right now only the G6 Real supports interaction with the Wii, but supposedly, with a future update the cyclods evolution with also support interaction with the wii.

    So the R4 does not allow Wii/DS connectivity? Is this confirmed?

    And incidentally, what games support this so far, aside from Pokemon Battle Revolution?

    CSD,

    According to the forums that is correct only the G6 Real allows Wii/DS connectivity. And supposedly the cyclods evolution will support it with a future firmware upgrade.

    The only game i know of is pokemon battle revolution.

    Thanks. I remember wishing I had a GBA to connect with Wind Waker and was hoping I can now do something similar with my Wii/DS. Unless a lot of games start implementing this to the extent where it adds loads of new content (something that is very unlikely to happen), I guess we won't be missing much.
