However, the success story of this device was quite different before the R4 cards come into being. Earlier the device was nothing but a video game that used to come with some good games loaded into it. But the invention of R4 cards turned the whole scenario and made the device the most sought after among all.
Games are one of the most time passing elements. No matter how old are you, if you have a flair for playinggames, you will enjoy playing games by using a console device, which offers you a wide screen, superb sound quality and touch screen facilities. However, before the R4 cards come into being, there were no storage capabilities in the device. So, it made possible to store new games in the device at ease.
However, just a basic R4 card could not have brought all these revolutionary changes that reached the Nintendo device to the heights. The new version of R4 card for 3DS is definitely a great new invention.
The difference between R4 cards and R4 3DS cards:
When 3D technology got introduced in the console device, R4 3DS cards were also introduced to complement the technology and its 3D capability. Nintendo 3DS can play the games of the previous series of DSi and DS consoles, and this makes developers manufacture the R4 3DS flash cards. It helps in storing Homebrew games.
