    I already have a gateway and sd card ready to go. I don't want to buy oot and a memory card dongle so can I just buy a pal copy of cubic ninja and that be it? I want to do the whole emunand thing. But where do I get cubic ninja?

    Get Cubic Ninja, there's a ton of things coming out for it. NTR, KARL, maybe OSKA. Good investment, and as a bonus you get some homebrew to play with in the mean time.

    CN prices are rising and you may have to hunt some as you will need an EU copy. Some of the EU Amazon shops may have some. The U.S. versions are at 40+ now.

    EU release won't be any cheaper I can tell you that right now.

    There was a very dry period though, after NINJHAX was blocked it was going for AU$20. I got mine for $50 when the exploit was released. So (for myself) I'm lucky that it's now over that again :P

    $50 Australian? Damn I got mine for $20 long before Ninjhax was blocked.

    Really? I grabbed 3 copies the day NINJHAX was announced for $15 each. Then I forgot all about it until last week :)

    You have everything you need from GW, no need to worry about KARL and OSKA, KARL is working to get region free working on there consoles, OSKA is trying to be the next GW,but free. No movement there as they are asking for some partial work from KARL. I believe there was another trying to reverse engineer GW, or was that OSKA...dunno but I'm enjoying snes emulators and bravely default atm.

    Dude, if you have Sky3DS, you don't need the retail cart of Cubic Ninja. Just load up the Cubic Ninja rom and you're good to go, let it be GW, KARL, or OSKA.

    A Cubic Ninja rom on a Sky3DS is as good as the retail cart of Cubic Ninja.

    I own it for N64. I had it for 3DS and sold it a month ago but it wouldn't have mattered since I had the American version which wouldnt have worked on my new 3ds.

    It was somewhat after Nintendo demanded EBGames to remove them off the shelf.

    Honestly $50 is a pretty good investment with multiple CN based CFWs released or in development.

    I picked mine up a month before Ninjhax was released. $20 wasn't the cheapest I could have got it, but there was no way of knowing *when* Smealum would release. So I bought it as soon as he got his new3DS.
