    Prior to my other thread I'm now stuck between the sky3ds and the K3DS. The K3DS has a lot more features and seems to easily be the better card however it gets really confusing about the 10 games limit part. They say on website they now no longer have limit but didn't say they released a new card so did they patch it or release a new card as no website seems to be selling a blue button K3DS unlike a Sky3ds. If I cannot get a K3DS which has the 10 games limit broken for sure I will just go ahead and get the sky3ds as the cart i wanted the gateway is incompatible with the 2ds :(.

    What features? It sounds like a clone of an old Sky3DS. you want to get a new Sky3DS or a gateway, everything else currently available is an inferior card.

    I think they mean King3ds which is just a sky clone.They list these features on the website (direct copy/paste, spelling/grammar and all)

    Personally I'd prefer one that bypasses region locking ;P jokes aside neither the sky or king will allow region bypass (regionthree will work on a non-new model to allow it in conjunction with the cart howeveR)

    Gateway works with 2DS, but only if your console is on 9.2 or lower.

    But to answer your question, get the Sky3DS. K3DS and all others advertising the same features are clones, which are likely made with cheaper parts and the support will always be worse.

    QQ3DS seems better because i don"t think they produced any cards with limits
    also, comes with a DS mode flashcart

    Actually it's another clone, they don't "produce" any card but re-brand a sky3DS and a cheap DS card only with a "QQ" sticker.

    I am aware, but what i meant was that i do not see any indication of them having released a card with the game limit (equivalent to the first sky card)
    There's also R5, which is also a garbage rebrand but they only have a version with the game limit from what i see.

    They all have game limits, every one of them. They're just repackaged sky3DS carts, and all of those have a 31 hard game limit (not in software, but on hardware).

    If you do a quick search around Gateway has serious issues with 2DS right now from it not reading memory card to games constantly crashing.I will stick to the main cards though if they are inferior like you say. Would have preferred a dual card for my system to save on space and make it easier to use but this will have to do for now.

    I have a crystal blue 2DS and I have no issues at all. I think I heard from other users that for some reason (no one knows why), the crystal blue 2DS works perfect but other types of 2DS seem to have the issues you are talking about.
    In fact, I specifically bought a crystal blue 2DS because so many people said it worked on maxconsole for them.

    I have tested about 20 3ds files and 3 cia and every game works as it should. No issues reading the SD card either. My sister played some games on it too and she didn't report any issues. We have played most of the games for over 5 hours each and no issues. Sandisk 32gb microsd in the Gateway and Amazon 8gb sd in the 2DS.

    I may chance a gateway then and no doubt the issue will probably get patched in the future I could always convert to cia until then. a bit of an annoyance but better than nothing.
