The R4 card and its uses
October 12, 2010
When it comes to buying an R4 card for your Nintendo DS, the main question people ask is if it worthwhile? You have to spend money on it after all, and then go through a set up process. In addition, you have to make sure everything is formatted correctly. This effort will stop many from buying the card.
What it all comes down to is versatility. Do you want your Nintendo DS to do more then just play the games that are made just for the device? Do you want to do things with your Nintendo DS that people have never thought were possible? If you have the DS, 3DS, 2DS, or 3DS XL models, then there are R4 cards for you.
If you are still on the fence, then lets review some of the things you can do with an R4 card, and see if it is right for you.
The number 1 reason why people get an R4 card is because of the games. An R4 Card means that any games you like can be added to the Nintendo DS. This is possible because the R4 card acts like a blank slate, allowing you to put anything you want onto it. You can even put on games you make. With so many gaming options, a single R4 card can triple the number of possible games you can play. Your only limitations are what you can find on the Internet.
Finding more uses for the Nintendo DS is an excellent way to increase its versatility and use. For some, this includes using the R4 card as a music library. After plugging in the card, all you have to do navigate the music to find what you want. In addition, the R4 Card can play MP3’s making it very easy to move your library onto the card.
If you have some favorite pictures or need to show someone something, then why not use the R4 Card?
Not all activities on a Nintendo DS have to be gaming. If there is a book you are really into, then why not use the Nintendo DS as a portable reader? It will cut down on the number of devices you have to bring.
We all end up stuck in some situation where we will have to wait around for a few hours. Why not watch a movie? For some, the R4 card means having on demand access to a few hours of movie entertainment.
