    Both have several digital download games on them and I own many games too. About 30 in total.

    Didn't realize 3DS rom games were playable now via a card, so iv'e kind of been wasting my money buying games i wouldn't normally consider purchasing. I'll always buy worthy games though.

    Anyway back to the subject, which is the best card currently to buy? Sky3DS blue?

    I own 2x DS Two's already which 1 is used on a old DS Lite and the other whenever on either XL.

    Since you're on 9.4 and not 9.2 your only choice is sky3ds.

    I see, It's a shame it doesn't support homebrew or DS games! :|

    ..would make the need for my DS Two's redundant.

    huh?

    DSTWO Plus would be good. I cant be bothered with that button to switch games, need a menu. That button system for games would be a right mess about especially for young ones.

    At the moment nobody knows if the DSTWO+ is real/what features it even has/what firmwares it even supports so you'd be waiting quite a while to figure that out or not. And unfortunately right now all the systems which have a real menu only work on 9.2 or below.

    I hate these people bashing SKy3ds cause you have to push a button. It plays the games. You can go online. Spoiled little brats. You cant be bothered to push a button? Whatever happened to looking at the glass half full? You can play the games... flawlessly...

    Menus are easier and Gateway is ultimately a more permanent solution, especially now that you can downgrade with one which basically puts you at a position in which you can stay at one firmware for as long as you need.

    Of course Menus are easier. There is no question.. but if hes got a 9.4 and he cant bother with pushing a button to play a free 3ds game.. well I could throw any insult I could to this Geordie.

    You need to wait for the game to cycle through. Imagine you got 10 games and you want to play the 8th/9th..
    Most importantly, when you can choose between a software multirom or a hardware button, the choice is pretty obvious..

    Edit: I do agree that in this case he got no choice left, because he updated the console, willingly or not.

    These people? lol.... I haven't bashed anything. I merely stated it would be difficult and non child friendly using that method. For now we have enough games owned hard copy and shop download games on both 3DS XL's. I'll keep an eye on this DSTwo+, lets hope it turns out to be real.

    It takes 8 seconds max per game. Gateway is very convenient...especially for all everything it does.... sky3ds isnt teh BEST option...but it is a GOOD option for him.

    don't waste your time waiting for the super dstwo+ because it will only supports 4.x firmwares,for now you really only have 2 options with 9.4 firmware,option 1- non child:whip: , option 2 buying 2nd hand games of ebay.

    No, it was a observation, merely my opinion of that it would be difficult to navigate to the game you want to play "at your tips quickly" ...ok you go back to that mess :P
