I'm getting someone a 3DS for christmas and was wondering a few things about the r4 cards.

Are there any that can play 3ds games? Specifically Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.

What is the best card for playing DS and DSI games?

Thank for any answers you can give me!

Yes, no cards can support 3ds games. If you are wondering about choosing a card to play DS games, r4igold 3ds from r4ids.cn can be your choice, it works on the wood firmware, which has great features.BTW, another cheaper one:ace3ds plus, it has new package with blue color, you can buy it as a christmas gift.

So no card can play 3ds games...well that's a bummer. As for DSi it looks like the R4i gold plus can play them but can anybody confirm that?

She's a huge pokemon fan so I want a card that can play the latest pokemon games like Black 2 and White 2.

Would the above mentioned card work for that?

EDIT: I have found several sites selling them and I know that there are fakes out there. So do these sites look legit?

Which Is The Best R4 Card And Where To Buy? You can find this is a very hot topic and many users shared their own opinion openly in forum.

Some users recommend r4i gold rts 3ds, they thought r4i gold 3ds uses famous wood firmware with a quicker updating, and currently, r4i gold 3ds is considered to be one of the most famous r4i 3ds card in the market. While other users recommend r4i sdhc rts 3ds,they said, r4isdhc 3ds rts is the newest card from r4i-sdhc.com, besides, r4i-sdhc team is an old brand and trustworthy and so on.

After all, different people have different views. However, the most popular r4i 3ds card is r4i gold rts 3ds and r4i sdhc 3ds. In fact, there is mini difference between these two cards.

And if you want to know which is the best r4 3ds card? Then I recommend r4i gold rts 3ds. Because it uses famous wood firmware, with a quicker firmware updating. And the most important is that r4i gold rts 3ds is always the first one to fight back about the nintendo firmware updating, and with a good technology supporting. What's more? R4i gold 3ds added rts function as well. By the way, R4i sdhc 3ds rts card is also an amazing card as well, it supports rts, rtg function too. It’s the best r4i sdhc card.

Where to buy?

You can buy R4i gold RTS 3DS Card here: buy R4i gold RTS 3DS

One of the buyer said that he received his r4i gold rts 3ds card in 3 or 4 days from this website. And the R4i card works great on 3DS 6.1.0 console. After setting the card up and putting it in his new 3DS XL Ver 6.1.0 console, it worked like a charm. He think he was incredibly lucky, because the new r4i gold rts card can be used on new 3DS without any upgrade patch, finally he figure out that r4i-3ds.com team has preloaded the R4i gold rts 3ds card with the latest firmware to work with 3DS out of the box, that’s amazing!

This site has proven to be a very reliable 3ds/dsi flashcart reseller from your own experience, so it should be highly recommend: fast delivery, free post, quick response, great customer service.

I would suggest getting a card (if you haven't already) that works with the newest 6.1.0 updates for the 3DS and 3DS XL. I know the R4 3DS Dual Core card works, as well as the R4 3DS Rts silver card as well. Both out of the box, despite other cards that actually had to redo their hardware (and in turn, you had to buy a new card, as a simple update of the firmware would not do) I got mine from r43ds.org and when I got it, it just worked. Mind you, that was with an older firmware version, but I was able to update it no problem with the new firmware that came out. The key is to get the 2013 version of those cards, as that's the card that came out late last year, and seems to have no problem with the updates at all.

I think now even the red r4i 3ds and gold (if it's the NEWEST version work as well. You can see their r4 3ds selection and pick the one you think you'd like the most. I always look to see which cards get the fastest updates to their firmware (or did anyway, when I bought mine) and the dual core was the one that seemed to be updated the fastest. DSTwo is good as well, but about double the price really, and since I like my homebrew, etc.. I read it didn't support homebrew the same way these r4's did.

Yes, there is only one flashcard can play 3ds games, it's gateway 3ds. Gateway 3ds flashcard is the first and the only flash card for 3DS now. You can play backup 3DS ROMS with GATEWAY 3DS, which supports all 3DS ROMs to date and works on 3DS & 3DS XL consoles.

The best r4 card to play ds and dsi games, I recommend the r4i gold 3ds card, this is the best r4 card. It is a wonderful cart for both 3DS and DSi, as well as the DS lite. No matter what you have, r4i gold 3ds will work for you. It runs the fantastic Wood kernel, giving it top notch game compatibility. For the price, it's hard to beat. And can updated when you update your 3ds or ds system, it is very popular. This card is more stable. Not as many problems as the others. You can buy preflashed r4i gold 3ds from http://r4i-3ds.com/www-r4ids-cn-r4ds-r4...cards-c-26.html
