    Hey people..

    So I recently got a 3DS and my old flashcart won't work with it. I need to upgrade! However I can't really remember where I oredered my old cart from.

    Going through the websites to buy a new card, everything seems pretty shady. Broken english everywhere, ads all over the place, wierd checkout/transaction screens, ect.

    What i'm asking, is...

    What is the best 3DS flashcard to buy

    Where should I buy it to have it shipped within the U.S?


    Thanks!

    Saphi

    Did you try shoptemp?
    It's part of GBA temp just like Filetrip is.

    http://shoptemp.net/

    FYI, there's no Flashcard to play 3DS backups ( yet ).

    Thanks Hielkenator!

    Yeah, i know there's no 3DS emulation yet (sad day!) but I mainly just wanna be able to play some DS games without dropping a load of cash to buy my whole collection of ROMs in hard copies.

    Shoptemp looks a lot safer than some of the other sites i've seen. Which card would you suggest purchasing?

    Looks like the DSTWO trumps.. that's the one I was thinking of getting. I like the anti piracy bock feature. Thanks for the assistance you two!

    I bought my R4I 3DS from Zhuzhuchina, fast shipping considering it was free, got it within a month of it being dispatched, and it's fairing me pretty well, no problems as of yet and it was very cheap.

    You should look into ndsgamer. That's where I bought my dstwo card. It comes with an sd reader as well.

    I've bought two Acekard 2is and a DSTWO from http://realhotstuff.com/, very reliable. Fast shipping too.


    Edit: 1,000!!!!!!!

    I can second this. ZhuZhuChina are very fast, reliable, always legit and usually the cheapest option.

    Also, depending on what you want it for, you may be able to save yourself quite a bit of money by buying an R4i Gold instead of a DSTWO.

    I can safely say that RealHotStuff.com is the best option if you want it fast. It ships from New Jersey in the US. I got my card in about 2 days.

    Nope, that's the one of the shities cards ever.
    If u want to go cheap then go with R4ids.cn R4i Gold 3DS RTS 6.1V, btw all R4i cards are gonna be blocked after some updates but that one is gonna last longer than the the u wanted to buy.

    If u want to have updates forever then get a DSTWO.

    I wouldn't say R4 is shitty, it's not at DSTWO's level is all. DSTWO is obviously a much better choice, even though it's like double the price...

    And still cheaper than a new retail DS game was.

    I bought about 5 DSTwo units before and never regretted it at all.
    The only flashcart that instantly supports newer updates and has great features like memory editing and save /load state for DS Mode.

    Hell, I even ordered 3 more for a couple of friends 2 days ago!
