Compare R4i 3DS « Jailbreak DS Linker
R4 3DS Linker / micro SDHC Flash Card adapter for DS roms.
All modern DSi compatible R4i DSi cards and 3DS compatible R4 3DS flash cards havea built in Pass Key function when used on NDS and DS Lite or can install a homebrew App that adds this fuctionality to the cartridge. With it you can boot a DS ROM from a Gameboy Advance Flash Linker cartridge. This is not possible on teh latest consoles that no longer have a GBA cartridge slot also known as SLOT-2, but for DSi and 3DS you can use a SuperCard DSTWO adaptter that can play GBA rom games from a microSD card!
When trying to choose and compare all the R4i 3DS flash card the questions you have to answer are:
- is price the most important parameter?
(would you be willing to pay extra $20 for a card that can play GBA, SNES, MAME and even DOS games or you just want something that can run NDS ROMs and basic emulators like NES, GAMEBOY, Atari and other 8-bit video games)
- would you like to use your R4 card to play movies?
Aall R4i cards can do that but are you willing to spend time converting the video files to R4DS format on PC or would you like to pay that little bit extra to get a flash card that has a built in co-processor and DivX Player that can play DivX, MKV, WMV and XviD AVI files directly from torrent downloads without any need to convert.
What I am leading to is that in the end you have a choice between SuperCard DSTWO which costs about the same as 1 Original game cartridge or R4i 3DS and alternatives that have less features but can cost a third of what SuperCard 3DS goes for.
