    Saw it on Amazon.
    there is actually a 256GB micro SD card from Samsung.
    but you may have to break a leg or a bank to buy it.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01G7L03OS

    it's yours only for $229.99.
    It's very new.
    Samsung EVO Select Micro SDXC Memory Card, 256GB, 95MB/s.

    i think the new 3DS should handle it if you format it in FAT32,however i heard some problems with cards 128GB and above.
    so,i really won't recommend it,also it's very expensive and cost more than two 64GB PS Vita memory.

    of course, more compact = more expensive

    Compared to the other sizes available though. I know that its new and that it has a reason to cost more, but over 5x the price of a 128gb sd card is a bit too much to be paying...

    I'd Sony releases a 256GB Vita card for $230 some will buy it because $230 is actually cheap for Vita memory standard.
    64GB cost now $100.

    You'd fill that 300 game limit much faster than reach 256GB.

    Also, for o3DS users, there is a 512GB SDXC card available. If you really need it.

    To snipe as many people as possible: it all depends on what you actually install. Praise emulators, vcs (because they are better than emulators?), and random homebrew cias.

    Just how could the o3DS even use a sd card that size I thought it couldn't read anything above 100gb without issues

    I'm not sure how an o3ds handles larger sd cards, but it should be fine as long as it's not a micro sd card...

    no the problem is the file format of sdxc sd cards ( 32 gb or over) but you can use a program to format them to fat32 then they are fine
    no prob i use a 128 gb micro sd (in a sd converter)
