    Apparently Sun and Moon work better on the N3ds but I only have o3dses...and I am wondering if it's worth buying a N3ds considering the only game I'm interested on it is Sun/Moon...

    If you want to use NTR features with it, then yes.

    Well...I don't know...I planned on using an eventual harder difficulty patch/hack if one is released but I don't know if one would be created...

    The problem is that I would end up with 3 3dses...a little too much in my opinion...

    Well if you buy it you'll be able to use NTR video streaming and you won't have lag if you use luma's overclok.

    JUST DO IT! Seriously, knowing about the extended memory thing, it makes me feel better for buying a random N3DS XL ahead of the Sun/Moon design I pre-ordered. With this development, I think I'm done buying Old 3DSes.

    Absolutely! I have almost the same amount. 3 O3DS XLs, 1 2DS, 1 N3DS XL.

    Well if I could get a N3ds for 120euros (150 max) ...then I'd jump on the opportunity...(gotta look on e-bay and ask for firmware)

    I have almost all the Zelda 3DS systems... I'm just missing the Majoras Mask N3DS... I even have all the boxes (although the O3DS isn't the best condition because of how it was sealed...)

    If you buy a n3ds, try to find one on 10.6 or below so you can downgrade (I know 10.7 can downgrade, but the browser check bypass was patched).

    If they already have a hacked O3DS would the firmware version even matter?

    Couldn't they just do the DSIWare downgrade?

    The thing that sucks is usually the systems on a low firmware sell for more than their updated counterparts...

    Yeah, but it is more work and costs $$ to get fieldrunners. Below 11.0 is free

    Fieldrunners is only 5 or 10 dollars. It isn't that much.

    If you're going to use homebrew, get a N3DS.

    It seems it would be more work. Most stores don't carry 10.7 new 3ds now. So you would have to buy it from a source that does have them and hope they are not updated.

    Oh, thought they were more common. Yeah it would be less work to get fieldrunners and downgrade.

    Only if you've got the cash, if you want to use the extra features, and if your a die hard fan should you go out and buy another one. Personally, there isn't a whole lot of difference between the two systems other than hardware, and a couple of other things. I would save the cash for a switch, because that will undoubtedly have Pokémon on it.
