    Great review, never regret getting the Sky3DS as second flashkit for the kids.
    Easy to operate for them and the can't do anything wrong!

    To prevent long switching between games to get back to the first game, you can use multiple sd carts with a fewer games on it or a seperate sd cart for each persons with there own games on it.

    Huh... I would've never considered getting a rev1, but considering the only major flaw of rev1 has been removed and it's track record dodging system updates, this is definitely a solid card!

    If the DS2+ doesn't turn out as magical as it promises rev2 is a considerable alternative.

    Nice review

    A new advantage has popped up:

    Regionfree, you can now play Japanese / USA / EU games on your Sky3ds :)

    I just had to buy this one after my son accidentally updated his 3ds XL to 9.4, I'm a little sad yes :(
    So far it works very good and I have not complaints.
