if you have some legit games to play, just wait for a gateway, if you are buying it with nothing to play....maybe sky3ds, just stay on 9.2 or lower so you can always change your mind and get a gateway card.....really its up to you, but i would still say sky3ds isnt really 100% safe from being blocked, so keeping the option of gateway is a good idea if you do get a sky3ds

I would wait for Gateway, I myself have a Sky3DS and it really isn't all that amazing to be honest. The limitations are quite depressing but then again maybe I'm spoilt by the simpleness of DS flashcards.

well in the interest of keeping people informed....it is now possible to play region free games with sky3ds
https://gbatemp.net/threads/release...s-xl-from-9-0-9-4-sky3ds-users-rejoyce.378975

but it seems like a pain in the arse to use if you wanted to play a lot of imports, its all blind, slow, and requires the web exploit for each game to boot, but for 9.3-9.4 users sky3ds is starting to resemble a proper flashcard...(well "resemble" like how quorn "resembles" meat....looks kinda like meat, and if you close your eyes and imagine it may nearly taste a bit like meat :P )

And it doesn't work on New 3DS.

Well, if you don't mind reading up on how to setup and use each of Gateway's individual features, and have a 3DS on 9.2-, then go with a Gateway. It has tons of features the Sky3DS sorely lacks. But if you have a 3DS that is on 9.3+, get a Sky3DS. It's very simple to use and now has region free!

You should probably wait for Gateway support. Chances are that the next major firmware update will block the Sky3DS and you end up with something that can't play games requiring newer firmware or games that need updates from eShop as you will lose access to eShop since you have to stay on a firmware that Sky3DS still works on.

Gateway and it's clones have some form of emunand so they won't have this issue. ;)

If EU n3DS came out with 9.4 (though I've heard they come with 9.0/9.2) then just import one from Australia. They use the same region as EU consoles so EU games will work with it.
