When you're considering purchasing a Nintendo 3DS, and have had a nice Nintendo DS and DSi console with an R4 DS Card, you have probably been pretty accustomed to being able to play your free homebrew and freeware games and applications. In fact, most people don't want to get a new console because they have come to rely on homebrew as a way to get lots of free games, applications and media functions out of the consoles. As with any new game system, it can and does take time for a quality solution to come out for homebrew. And it is not here for the Nintendo 3DS. The R4i For 3DS is here.
The R4 and R4i card brand of flash cards has long been known to be one of the most used, and one of the most popular cards available for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi, and now with this new R4i for 3DS card, you can take all of the fun of DS homebrew games and dsi games that you enjoyed on your older Nintendo hand held, and now use them on your Nintendo 3DS. What can you expect to be able to do with your card? Everything that you could do before. The same great features are included and built right in to the r4i for 3ds. You can watch full length movies, play back videos that you have downloaded from the internet. Listen to your entire mp3 collection and read the latest and greatest ebooks - or old classics that you want to read again.
It seems that with every single new version of the R4i, additional features or functions are included. The most notable one for the r4i for 3ds is the new Wifi update feature. This feature has been a long time coming, and is something that will help experienced and inexperienced users alike when it comes time to update their kernel versions. With the new Wifi update, you simply connect to any wireless connection and download the latest firmware files. They will then be automatically upgraded on your r4i and you'll be ready to keep playing.
We all love a little bit of retro every now and again, right? A good old movie we've seen a dozen times. Our favorite hits from the years past when it comes to our music. For gamers, the fun they had when they were playing their old 8 bit and 16 bit console games cane once again be brought back with the help of the R4i. By way of using the latest emulators. There is an emulator for almost every single classic game system. From the Nintendo Entertainment system, to the Super NES and everything inbetween. Even old computers are emulated. If you grew up playing your brand new ZX Spectrum, you can play all of those same great games right on your Nintendo 3DS with the r4i for 3ds card. Most younger gamers might not fully appreciate the old games we played, but we know that they were the best of the best when they were released. Most, if not all the emulators run and work at full speed. Allowing you to play your classic just as they were intended to be played.
If you've ever used an emulator on your PC or MAC, you know how the graphics can look choppy. This has a lot to do with the resolution on your monitor. This issue however isn't there when you play them on your 3ds. Due to the lower resolution screen of the 3ds, you will actually have the same crips and clear graphics you once had.
The list of things could go on and on. No list however makes up for actually using the card on your Nintendo 3DS. We've had customers come back to us months after purchasing to let us know they just discovered a remake of a game, or letting us know about the latest and greatest homebrew games they've been playing. The best way to experience everything that the r4i has to offer, is by getting your own card, and powering up your Nintendo 3DS!
