    eBay seems to be letting sellers sell R4iSDHCs and Sky3DS+ now.

    R4DS - http://goo.gl/Soztkc
    Sky3DS+ - http://goo.gl/wJsYmW

    Sky3DSs are priced a little higher compared to other sellers.. but you are protected by eBay money back guarantee.

    This means, if you have any issues with the product or the product not arriving, you can open a case or file a dispute?

    Sounds good to me :)

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    The R4iSDHC are clones of DSTTi or some other R4 clone, as far as features go, there isn't anything new since nintendo retired the DS/L/i system line.

    Notice that they're not named "R4" or "Sky3DS" in the titles but "3DS MicroSD Adapter"

    eBay MAY side with you on disputes, but if there's any actual investigation your PayPal and maybe even your eBay account can and will be closed for violation of their terms: it's just as much against their ToS for you to buy these items as it is to sell them.

    I can't believe eBay would shut down your account for buying one of these. That's like entrapment.

    Also the description states nothing about it being a R4 or Sky3DS. It's like some generic "SDHC Memory Adapter"

    You may have issues if you file a dispute stating "hey, this doesn't play the games I downloaded"
