    Been looking on the web for hours, didn't find. Not even on EBay or Amazon, and if there are, they certainly won't ship to my country, so I decided that I would look on GBATemp.
    If it's possible, I would like the price to be not much more than 35$.
    If you have an offer, let me know, and I can't really buy it now, so I will contact you when I can.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i found in 2 stores, but the price is too expensive to even think about it.. for whatever reason they now are more expensive than the plus version...
    i would sell mine, and get me the plus version.. but shipping and customs...

    Ye... Shipping is always the thing that ruins the deal. I once found a game for 10 bucks, but shipping turned out to be 3 times more than the actual price :/

    Costs more, and there's no possible way to remove the 3DS game option. Who knows, maybe I accidentally touch it and I brick.

    Gambia, The
    There is a trading section in this forum that you can access. I suggest you to look there.

    Normally the DSTWO Plus comes without the 3DS mode installed. You have to install it manually with the plugin. But that probably depends on the shop.

    I own a DSTwo Plus and can confirm this is an irrational fear.
    The 3DS "use" of the thing requires setting up a special CFW on the 3DS's SD card first before you can use is, similar to how gateway works. Additionally, don't bother, it sucks. (I use it as a regular DSTwo exclusively now)

    The only thing I could think of as potentially dangerous is if you are a user of the regular gateway card, which might brick your or at least throw up some kind of spooky error because you have a DSTwo inserted if you accidentally forgot to swap carts.

    I can confirm what CheatFreak47 said. I own both a Normal and a Plus version. They are functionally the same thing aside from the upgraded hardware. You have to go through a rather obtuse process to actually GET the 3DS functionality working...it's NOT there out of the box. So there is no reason to be afraid of getting the Plus version... Honestly, unless you're NOT on CFW, there's no reason to buy a DSTwo at all since there are now emulators that run natively and MUCH cheaper flash carts (I recently got my old r4i rts 3ds working again thanks to recent CFW updates)

    Ditto, I actually just ordered two R4i Gold 3DS RTS to start using instead of my DSTwo specifically because the DSTwo is so power hungry it kills my 3DS overnight if I accidentally leave in the system.

    Basically this. Without the launcher.dat on the 3DS SD card the 3DS-mode functionality can't be used.

    Yeah, I can confirm the power drain. If you leave the DSTwo in the slot, it continues to power the onboard processor, which drains your battery quickly. 3-4 hours of use or dead by the end of the day, even in standby mode. If you DO go with a DSTWo, either version, you have to remember to pop it out when you're done!
