    Hello,

    I'm going to buy a 2DSXL (as 3d is useless to me, my eyes don't see it) and a card that'll run 3ds roms and ds games.
    Which card is recommended to buy? (that works with the 2dsxl)

    and, where is a SAFE UK store to buy from? obviously Amazon don't sell them and I'm a little scared of an unknown site stealing my bank card information.
    if you can help, that'll be great!

    nds-card.com and a Sky3DS+ is a good card, but you can also ditch the card and do it for free with much more things such as emulators, custom themes and much more

    Yeah, don't waste money on a flashcard, hacking your 2DS so you can pirate 3DS games is much cheaper and more reliable.
    https://3ds.guide is the best guide to hacking a 2DS/3DS to date which you should use when you get your 2DSXL.

    I'm noobie too and planning to buy new 2ds xl. But when I take a look at 3dsguide, it requires that you need 2 console in order to hack it. So people like the op, flashcard is better option.

    That would be utterly perfect!

    Alas, I'm scared of bricking the device, so I don't really want to do that and sadly I don't know anyone who could do it for me, but thank you anyway!

    No, because a Sky3DS costs more than a 2DS, and you can resell a 2DS, but you'll lose a lot of money trying to resell a Sky3DS because no one wants it, and you can't resell it while you want to play games. But once you've used the 2DS you're finished with it and can resell it. You may even make a profit doing this. But with Sky3DS you can only lose money.
