    You better make sure you really buy from amazon and not an amazon marketplace seller. Only the former is even possibly reputable.

    Not if you buy from a real store, fact.

    Well, if someone wants to buy a Nuntendo Swetch or a Sandısk SD Card from Alibobo, there they go.
    Everything can be faked, and the more popular and recognized the brand is, the more it will be faked.
    Of course, brands tend to be popular and recognized when they make good products.

    They don't, they probably get help at the store for that as well. And don't forget a lot of phones and tablets lack expandable storage, including every iOS device which hold a huge part of the market share.
    No, that would be Kingston ;)
    Kingston are so commonly faked that fake cards even slip into legitimate shipments.

    exactly, nintendo's excuse for passing this expense was that chances are you already have a 3ds/ds so it was able to cut its costs and pass it to the consumer.

    and most phones or devices these days use usb c chargers, id be surprised if they don't try the same again.

    In all fairness, I barely see Kingston SDs in shops here.

    I have to admit, I fell for this when I bought my first memory card for a GC, didn't realize the Wii (?) one would have just as easily worked.. duh.... don't know what I was(n't) thinking.
