  1. New NINTENDO 3DS And This Works!

    Posted by Thomas E on 8th Mar 2015

    I bought this for my NEW Nintendo 3DS XL console that I picked up on release day. And while I was a bit worried, the product description said it works just fine one the NEW Nintendo 3DS systems, so I took a gamble, and it paid off. I know some cards just won't work, but if you've got a NEW Nintendo 3DS XL - this card will work just fine and without issues!

    I'm running this on my NEW 3DS XL with version 9.5.0

    Posted by Joel on 5th Mar 2015

    Does this card support Nintendo DS emulators and allow you to play NDS games as well as all the other retro emulators? Because I haven't seen any mention of it playing NDS games. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. =P But is there a full list of what emulators this card supports? Thanks!

    ANSWER: YES Joel. It works with all of the games and emulators. Full support for .nds files and there are close to 80 different emulators it works perfectly with.

  9. I was skeptical, but glad I ordered.

    Posted by Mike on 27th Feb 2014

    I was a bit skeptical because I am in the UK and you were shipping from outside of the UK, but I am glad that I listened to the reviews and your nice and helpful sales staff. My R4 arrived in just 9 days to the UK (FAST FAST FAST) and I have been using it since day one. It is a great little card, does so much and it costs virtually nothing.

    Some tips for others: To not have VAT on this item, just mark it as a lower value (ask for them to do it here) or as a sample or gift. Didn't have to pay any VAT at all.

  10. Europe

    Posted by Jaymee on 26th Feb 2014

    Q: I have more of a question. I live in europe and as you know you got the region code stuff as we have PAL here. Does this R4 card work on a european 3ds? Sorry for asking my wuestion here btw.

    A: That's a very valid question. And yes, it does work on all 3DS systems world wide, regardless of what region they are set for. The same card will work in a USA system, European System, Japanese System, etc... Without any issues. It is universal.
