    The 3ds is said to have new anti-piracy features. Do you guys think that these features will be able to block the ds2 from working on the 3ds? Or could the supercard team find a workaround and get to work?

    I'm guessing we won't know this till it comes out.

    But it won't surprise me if they are blocked.

    Now the whole Supercard Section is bursting with these topics. Why can't people understand that none of us know the answer to this question? We won't know if the DSTWO will work on the 3DS until it's released...obviously...

    Personally I think that the DS2 will still work - but ONLY in 'DS mode' (just like it does at the moment)
    The 3DS must have a 'backward compatibility' mode - so I guess all flashcards will still work, especially those compatible with DSi's

    If it does get 'blocked' I'm sure a workaround would be found eventually & a fix would be released

    I'll just use my crystal ball and predict the future...

    Seriously, though, I don't have a clue. I wouldn't be surprised if it just didn't work outright, or only worked in DS-mode with a firmware update. In fact, the latter's the most likely situation. Even if the 3DS gets hacked at any point in the DSTwo's update lifespan (most likely the next 18 months or so, judging by the average shelf life of Supercard products), the Supercard team most likely won't add 3DS support to the DSTwo. DSi mode support, maybe, but it's a big maybe.

    This idiot can´t read the part of the flashcard´s package where it says "Compatible with DS/DSi".

    As of now, nintendo is taking into account that flashcards do exist. And also on the opposite side, Team SC is also trying to find as many ways as possible to make their flashcards work with the 3DS if they can. The anti-piracy features will be hard to get through, but this does not mean that there will not be a flashcard supported for the 3DS. And any flashcard team cannot make flashcard compatible cards unless they see the 3DS itself and try to make it according to the 3DS specs.

    That is what i think btw 0_o

    Inside you, all around you
    ok let me go into the future of 4 months buy the system and see if it will load the DS2, and i will tell you if it works or not

    this is an insane question, we will all find out once the system is out

    with the rumor of the 3DS having automatic firmware updates this could be the hardest system to hack with also games possibly having firmware updates to make the system update in order to play the game the game cartridges themselves have enough room for force firmware updates

    in order to make even a flash cart work for this system they will have to create a hack that disables auto updates, and when dumping rom files they will have to remove the code about needing a frimware update, if homebrew channel can be added hopefully hackers will be able to create a custom firmware update that wont remove homebrew channel so that backups can be played

    Most other cards out there I'd say they won't be able too.
    I think the SC2 has a good chance of working, not right out of the box though, probably an update if possible.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    You can wait for the 3DS to come out to get your final answer. Otherwise it will be a general NO.

    Here's my 100 dollars bill (smashing the table). Supercard DSTwo will work since day one on the 3DS. Where's yours?

    Since it's backward..... but they can change the boot sequence like they did with the DSi to require another hardware revision.....
    I think it will, but it will play DS games only (and GBA, as it's emulated ON THE CARTRIDGE), DS mode ofc
