    Does anyone know where I can find a red button sky 3ds for cheap(er than blue button)? I have a gateway, I only want it to put a few regions of Cubic Ninja on it. So I don't need the version that can play unlimited games. The people I got my Gateway from only sell the blue button, for $100 :-(

    Unless I'm mistaken, isn't the Sky3DS region locked to the SD? So you would need multiple SD's for multiple regions?

    No, you can put any region rom on a Sky3DS, it just won't open on a wrong region 3DS. Well as far as I know from reading, I haven't actually owned one before.

    I should have specified I am in Australia.

    This is correct, I owned a blue-button one (but lost it somehow) and it did, in fact, use any ROM given to it. It just wouldn't run on an out-of region 3DS.

    As for whether or not you can find a red-button model, it would be the same price no matter what. The blue-button models are more stable as well. No reason to buy a red-button model when the blue-button model is a distinct upgrade from it.

    You can use region four to load out of region games on a sky3ds card

    If you bought a Gateway, then why don't you use that? Boot Gateway SysNAND Mode and load your CN. I think it'd be cheaper than buying another flashcard.

    With the exchange rate plus the huge shipping costs that the U.S. always seems to have, it will cost more than just buying the local one (not to mention the risk that it could be a scam website versus one I have already dealt with, so know and trust). That's what I meant.

    OK thanks. If it would be the same price no matter what I guess I'll just get a blue button. At least when I get sick of tinkering around with Nintendo stuff it will be a lot more sellable.

    Gateway loads 9.5 FIRM on use, so unless you want to play Cubic Ninja (last I checked, nobody does) it won't get you anywhere.

    You can use RegionFOUR to load SOME out of region games. Not all.
