    lol, just joking, I know that's a stupid question that's been asked a million times and has a very obvious answer (which is no, or rather, extremely unlikely), I just had to mess with you guys a bit.

    i was hoping for my acekard2i (which shows up as alex rider) to work on the 3ds but no doubt nintendo has other ideas...

    DStwo maybe, others definitely not -- at least for the meantime.

    Well you never know - the 3DS may have 2 types of modes - a '3DS' mode and a 'DS compatible' mode - perhaps determined by the small tag on the side of a 3DS card

    [​IMG]

    By inserting a 'flashcard' the 3DS goes into 'DS Compatibility' mode & it'll may still run as 'normal'

    The REAL answer to this IMHO is really 'We Don't Know !!!'

    who knows maybe they did all they could to detect ds mode flashcards on the dsi and the same carts will work on the 3ds or maybe it only requires a firmware/bootloader update. or they won't work at all until someone finds a way to hack the 3ds

    Well I would really like for my Acekard 2i to work so I don't have to worry about NES emulator screen burn in on the likely chance that the DSTWO does work on the 3DS.

    You're just mad you didn't think of it first. It's pretty clear from your sentence. I mean, you're so furious with rage that you didn't make this first, that you even have improper grammar in your post. It's ok though, I'm sure it would have been just as awesome, no, even more awesome had you beat me to it.
