An R4-like device that is compatible with Nintendo’s new handheld emerges
A device that allows gamers to play downloadable DS titles has been released for Nintendo’s DSi.
Entitled the Acekard 2i, the new accessory allows the storing of data on a MicroSD card, and is fully compatible with the DSi’s features.
Leading publishers and retailers told MCV in July that DS software sales were being seriously affected by R4 cards, prompting SimplyGames.com to pull the device from its website. However, the R4 is still freely available on eBay and Amazon Marketplace.
