Increasing numbers of Nintendo DS and now 3DS owners are starting to use R4DS game backup copiers. Should Nintendo and game publishers like LucasArts worry? It all depends on what the backup device commonly known as R4 Cards or Nintendo R4 DS Flash Card are used for by the customers. Unlike pirated games these devices themselves are not illegal and do not contain any intellectual property owned by Nintendo. It is up to the user to decide if he wants to copy the games he owns or venture into the dark waters and download from the internet backup copies other have made.
A legitimate use for SuperCard 3DS DStwo would be to use it for:
- moving your entire NDS game collection to one Nintendo 3DS flash card.
- consolidating all games in ONE cartridge to save space when traveling and minimize the chances of loosing a game cartridge
- having and using a legal backup copy of DS games to prevent damage to the original
- playing Emulated copies of GBA games on 3DS.
(Nintendo 3DS Virtual consoles lets you buy GAMEBOY and GBC games, but if you already own these games or want to play GB ADVANCE games you need an adapter like SuperCard DStwo for playing them on N3DS)
- Playing Classic games from NES, SNES, SEGA Genesis, GameGear and Master System, Atari, Commodore etc.
(3DS R4 DS Card and SC DStwo in particular comes with emulator software for most of the old consoles)
- Playing Your Video and Movie files.
(You can buy 3D movies from Nintendo, but with a 3DS Flash Card you can transfer the movies and videos you already own from your PC or Mac to a microSDHC card and play them on the DS or 3DS)
- Playing freeware 3DS Homebrew and DS homebrew like DSPaint, DSDoom, DSGmail, Moonshell3 etc.
