    Larger the SD card the better considering 3ds games can be up to 8 GB or so

    go big or go home. 32 or 64 is the only way to go.

    32 isn't that great considering that many 3ds games are more than 3gb in size

    The biggest games Ive ever seen are DK Returns Bravery Default and Resident Evil Revelations.

    The rest are 2gigs(Pokemons ... Streetfighter.)

    Then again. Im on Sky3ds so to cycle through those many games. I would rather have 2 sd cards :lol

    I wish that were true. I just returned a 64gb one.. same class same brand and it was the same price was getting two 32.

    Alternatively, you can grab a more well known brand, like a Sandisk or Samsung, on Amazon for around 30 bucks.

    Amazon costs about 40 bucks or so after shipping and tax, which I would assume that the Best Buy one would also be around 40 bucks or so after tax, though that depends on the state. What he could do is have Best Buy price match Amazon, which would save him a couple of bucks.

    True just depends also an amazon prime subscription would help. Only thing I guess is I don't generally use amazon.

    I highly doubt there's gonna be any if maybe only a few 3DS games that are going to be 8GB, maybe New 3DS exclusives but even Xenoblade Chronicles I'm predicting is likely going to only be 4GB but a minimum of 8GB Micro SD is recommended.

    If you're going big why not get a 128GB Micro SD that is the biggest they come ATM, next year we might see 256GB Micro SD's with the likely of current 128GB Micro SD's dropping in price.

    I don't think Sky3Ds or Gateway allows folders ATM correct?
