What exactly does a r4 do? I heard it emulates games, but i'm not sure. Do you need to download a emulator to play roms on it. it is confusing me very much, can smeone explain?:confused::confused:

Buy the r4, buy a micro sd card to go in it, then you're free to download roms and drag them onto the micro sd and pop it in the r4, then put that in your DS.

So i need to buy another micro sd card to play roms, or does one come with the r4? And if i do buy one, how much do they cost?

It depends, you can choose to buy them with, or without the Micro SD. Mine was £13 (around $25) without one or £16 ($30-ish) with a 1Gb one, thats enough for roughly 20 ROMS.

what about n64? if you can n64 i may just buy a ds because i only need 20 more points then i will buy and R4. I put allmy emulators onto my HDD at school so whenever i go into a lab or can get to a computer i whip out my 360 controller and play some ocarina of time!
