The R4 3DS Dual Core is perhaps our most popular card. Not because we say say, but because more and more customers end up buying the R4 3DS Dual Core over other cards when its time to checkout in our shopping cart. We to offer up the largest selection of GENUINE R4 3DS Cards.
While there may be a lot of online stores that have 20 or 30 different "brands", the truth is that of the 20 or 30 different kinds only 5 or 6 are actually genuine cards. The others? Sadly all knock offs of the original that end up losing the support of the developers that make the firmware kernel files for them.
What's the big deal about the firmware kernel, you may be asking. Simply put, the firmware (and all of the firmware updates) are what drive the cards we sell. Without a firmware kerne file, your R4 3DS card would be nothing more than a blank cartridge. One that the Nintendo DS, DSi or Nintendo 3DS would not even recognize.
It's the firmware on the card that makes it work just as it should. And the firmware that allows it to load and play many of the games and applications that we review and talk about here in R43DS.org
And that is why it is vitally important that when you're picking the right R4 3DS card for yourself, that you pick one that has the on going support and development of the programmers / factory who are responsible for releasing new firmware files. Because without the firmware, or an updated firmware, you're going to be stuck and unable to use your card down the road, as new updates are released for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems.
That's exactly what our R4 3DS Dual Core card is about. New firmware releases the moment that the 3DS or 3DS XL systems are updated. At worst, our customers have had to wait a day or two for a new firmware kernel, and often, the firmware that worked on the last version of the 3DS, also keeps working on any new updates.
That is the single biggest reason that our customers continue to choose the R4 3DS Dual core card over any other cards we have available.
