    Because nobody buys 300 games and the only people ever to complain about the limit, on 3ds or wii u, are pirates.

    Yes the limit is still there, the workaround is to only install the games you'll actually play.

    I don't know if 292 games are released in pirated form lmao. Only 40-50 (and that's being generous) good wii u games. Who would own more than 100?

    They would probably ask for your NNID and check out what you actually bought. In other words, don't bother. :P

    I surpassed the 300 game limit in the Nintendo 3DS when downgrading to 9.2 wasn't possible and the latest firmware was 9.5.

    I bought every first party game in digital and some others, many from the eShop, nearly every GB VC, GBC VC some NES games, many DSiWare too. I used a 128GB card.

    After the downgrade was possible, I haven't bought any other game, but hey, I already gave Nintendo more money on digital games than anyone else in my country.

    Ok, one person bought more than 300 games. Thank you for single-handedly keeping Nintendo afloat :)
    I'd be curious what proportions of those games you've played: (1) at all; and (2) for more than five minutes.

    I've played every first party and good third party games from zero to end (retail ones mostly). I know there are more than 50 of them. Around 50 GB games I've finished, as well and half the GBC games (some 30 or something). NES and DSiWare are the games I haven't played a lot, but my children play them for me. And at least 25 different eShop only games from zero to end, too.

    It would be good if Nintendo had a way of sharing your gameplay profile easily online. When I first downgraded, I had to format my 3DS since it got soft-bricks every time before I formatted, otherwise I could have shown you photos of my old gameplay records. Not that you care a lot about it, but for backing up my statements with proofs.

    But yeah, you got a point, I have finished 100% around a little bit more than half the games the 3DS install limit, so no need for 300 slots, but hey, I had a lot of variety for sharing with friends and family.

    If some one needed more space yet had the money to buy all those games would have plenty of money to buy more systems.

    At least that's what I would do.

    So did I just waste money on a Samsung 128GB microSD card for my 2DS..? I had all the BEST games installed, and exceeded the 32GB card I had before... But the 128GB are on sale for $25 at Walmart right now, so I got two of them... Too good of a sale to pass up.
