Latest R4 cards for the Nintendo 3ds console

Nintendo has made it public that they in no way support this product as they feel it is disrespectful not only to them, but to all the other companies that have had their games pirated, and as a result of the many lawsuits from Nintendo, many sites like eBay and Amazon do not sell this flashcard. Now that doesn’t mean this product is just for illegal piracy; it is possible and perfectly legal if you own a physical copy of DS games and have backups of said games and wish to put them on the flashcard instead of carrying all your cartridges around. From what I heard, you can also somehow play SNES ROMs on it, but I believe even though they are obsolete ROMs it’s still a big deal with piracy.r43dsrts3-300x231

As of right now, the R4s allow you to use your wi-fi to update it, and it seem to still be compatible and reliable. With each update that appears, there has been no problem whatsoever that has kept it from not working. One recommendation, you can order them with or without an SD card and I highly recommend getting one without one and buying an SD card at a store that sells them. For some reason the SD cards that come with the R4 3DS aren’t the best and instead of hasting with trying to get them to work, it’s better to just get one separately. These R4 3DS flashcards can go anywhere from $7 to $20 depending on where you buy the card. Now are these worth the money? Yes they are; if you’ve ever owned previous handheld systems before, you know it really isn’t fun carrying all your games with you when you go somewhere. From misplacing them, to switching from one cartridge to another, with this you never have to swap, you have all your games available to you at the touch of a button.

R4 3DS or R4i SDHC 3DS

The R4 3DS, also known as the R4i SDHC 3DS, is a flashcard made for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo DSI systems that allows users to play ROMs of many handheld devices on their system. First off, the R4s is not an official Nintendo product, but it has been produced by many design companies across the globe since it was first introduce. There are many clones of the R4, but the flashcards made by the original manufacturers seem to be the most reliable and better quality. The flashcards come with user friendly software that is required to get the device up and running; but at no headache considering how anyone with an Internet connection can do it.


From what I found out, there are some copies of the R4 that come updated to the latest update components already installed on them and some don’t; however that is not a problem considering all you need to get it running is available on the R4’s website. Now this product is very controversial considering it is banned in many countries for it piracy ability.
