    You could buy a physical copy? It might go down in price after smealum releases the new Ninjhax update.

    Price will only go up or stay the same since you still need Cubic Ninja to install the homebrew channel otherwise it wouldn't even be a ninjahax update '' hence the name''. So the best time to buy Cubic Ninja is now since you can find it for around 35 euro's wich is a decent price i personally think.

    I tend to agree that it might go down in price after Smealums teased update - afterall, why would anyone hang onto CN if you only need it once to install Ninjhax? It's very likely that a lot of current owners would sell their copies hoping to still cash in on the inflated prices.
    Granted, it will never be as cheap as it was before Ninjhax... but 'cheaper' than it has been for the past 8 months or so.

    Where did you find yours? The cheapest I could find at the time was a brand new sealed copy on Amazon.de for 72 euros, and that doesn't include the overseas shipping to the U.S. either. The other European Amazon sites didn't have any copies, new or used. I refused to check eBay because I've gotten completely screwed over there multiple times. :( Thank goodness I could afford it. I jumped in on it because I was afraid someone else would get it while looking for even cheaper.

    Got mine on Ebay 2 months back. Paid 35 with 5 euro's shipping. Just searched a bit on ebay and i see one for 30 euro's from Italy. Also use paypal when buying on ebay, you can always ask your money back normally through paypal

    Nice! Honestly though, with all the things we could eventually do, like running an out of region EmuNAND once ARM9 is cracked, I noticed pressing home when using the built-in RegionFOUR crashes the whole system and I don't know of a way to exit the game, and playing my backed up roms on RetroArch once that's out and stable. This will pay itself off... Eventually. :P

    I know Smealum said that it might be able to stay on the system even if it updates, but people might keep their physical copies if they ever need to reinstall it for any reason. Also, if Ninjhax 3.0 is ever released, it will probably be on latest firmware, meaning that it could be installed on more systems, and more available systems = more buyers, so price will go up.

    No. It won't increase any further - if it did it would be more expensive than getting a Sky3ds (which allows anyone on any fw to run a rom of Cubic Ninja and apply ninjhax).
    It's topped out - the only people in denial of this are those that own CN and believe it will just increase in value... it's more likely that Nintendo will find someway to block ninjhax and make CN worthless.

    Keep on dreaming. Cubic Ninja will just stay at the same price somewhere between 30 - 50 euro's. Won't go down and won't go up. Only people that say differently are in denial because they don't own CN. Nintendo is 2 busy blocking Miiverse posts to even care about CN.

    idc, Cubic Ninja and ninjhax runs fine from my Sky3ds - no need for me to waste 30 -50 euros on the original cart :P

    I was aware of that, but I was thinking instead of having two seperate Emunands (One for USA and one for JPN) is there a completely region free EmuNAND?

    well unless people really hack the 3ds system enough to merge all of the locales of the 3ds (language, fonts, whatever) into one 'region', then there is not one all in one solution like you seem you want.
    but sure, you can have different sd cards with different regions of emunands on.
    if you use one of those dual/multiple emunand loaders, you could have them on the same sd card

    That makes sense. An entire region free Emunand would have been more convenient, but since you said I could have multiple on a single SD card (Mine is 64GB) with a dual loader, that would be just as good! I just didn't want to carry multiple SD cards. An American one to play carts I can actually walk to a store and buy, and a Japanese one to play imports. I'm not comfortable with RegionFOUR just yet. If launched from the Homebrew Launcher and you press Home, the whole game freezes, leaving me to force power off.

    Only palantine CFW supports multi-emuNAND i think. However, all you really need is rxTools, it already has region free.

    I looked it up, but the thread says that it doesn't support N3DS, unfortunately. Though since this new soon to come exploit, that might change.
