    I know that when they first released, it was limited to 10. Then it was cracked, so they decided to unlock it in their own program. Now that the limit has been removed, exactly how many games can the new Sky3DS models hold?

    I read somewhere that people were having issues getting 32 games on there, there may be another limit at the 31 game mark? Can't find the source for this at the moment.

    Note, this was referring to simultaneous games, not 'ever' as was the old limit (ie, you can't replace the 10 games that were first placed on the cart)

    Right, so you can put up to 31 games on it; but in order to get to.. say the 31st one, you would have to press the blue button on the Sky3ds 30 times every time you boot your 3ds.

    So it's more logical to have multiple microSD cards or just move the old games out when you get new ones.

    The main thing is that you can delete your old games and put new ones(unlike the red button crap), I don't know why anyone would want to have 30+ games anyways.

    Plus it will be a pain in the ass to switch games with so many, I'm doing what TC said once I get more monez I'm buying another sd card and divide the games between them.

    Best solution for Sky3DS?
    Get 2 x 16GB class 10 microsd and devide your games on it. (like i do)

    I got a game storage box for 3DS games that also holds 2 SD carts, so it's easy to get with me

    Okay, so virtually, its as many as you want with different SD cards? If so, I might have to get one sometime, once I read more into the "online bans".

    It's a pain to press the blue button and wait to cycle around the games, anyways.

    Bans are basically for people who don't use private headers. At least what I understand so far.

    as someone who has owned a Sky3DS for almost two months now, trust me, you do NOT want to have to cycle through over 30 games. I personally don't like cycling through more than 15 games. All you need is a 32GB microSD card and no more than 15 roms that you actually intend to play. Anything over that is overkill.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that too. I think that if I do decide to get one, I'll get a 16gb card, possibly 2. I'd rather split my games to different cards than wait for the cycling time.

    Just a week that I have it and I already feel the same way, I would definitely recommend having 10 or max 15 games per card.

    I have a 16 gb card. That's more than enough. At the beginning I was trying to fit as many games as possible. I think I have 7 or 8 games now. That's enough imo. I delete the games I don't like that much and keep the gems:)

    No you can't have several sd cards, that's the point, the games are bound to the flashcard.
