    It's half of a rom-com, or romantic comedy. So, basically, Adam Sandler.

    This is what im screaming, Op!
    People are on here acting like the Sky3ds is rocket science.
    It's very very simple to use. But, most importantly, it is tangible.
    I can see, feel, taste(ugh), and touch it in my hands. ANd, it actually works right now.
    No waiting, no empty promises, and no drama. Yes, they got off to a rocky start with their '10-Game!' greed business model.
    But, just like the Gateway 'bricking' business model, they are passed that now. The new Blue button cards are unlimited. And, as far as we may know, could be
    upgradeable as well via software patch in the event of a f/w upgrade by Nintendo. At the end of the day, the Sky3ds is not the enemy. It is an OPTION.
    Because, in this day and age monopolys are a bad thing, I can say that having the Sky3DS as an option is a good thing.

    That, and also having Adam Sandler inside your 3DS is a pretty neat thing.

    I really wish the Sky3DS came out with their blue button before I bought my Gateway. I can live without homebrew.

    You're missing the step 0, which is where instead of buying a sky3DS, you buy a gateway

    I know nothing about SKY3DS. Is it even possible for SKY3DS to bypass region-lock?

    Oh please. If the game got transferred to a chip in the card every time the button was pressed two things would happen. First, the card would die really quick from having it's data overwritten constantly. Second, you'd have a long ass wait time every time you press that little button.

    This is not how it works. If you don't believe me then load up a game and eject the microSD card. According to this diagram everything should work fine since the file was loaded off the card already.

    You left out 1 HUGHLY important piece of the puzzle which is an interface("glue") between microSD and cart slot.
    This is usually some form of fpga (field programmable gate array).
    But if past "history/performance" is ANY indication of future performance, they have a dopga business model. Disposable onetime programmable gate array.
    Throw out your card and buy a new one ("we promise we fixed all problems this time ..snicker,snicker,tehe tehe").

    Okay, bear with me here..

    what if.. it's the MEMORY that reads the game, instead of the microsd slot WRITING it?

    Solid science
