    When Sky3ds came out with there first flash cart (10 game limit) did they do that on purpose then come out with the second cart ( without game limit ) in response to gateway. Or was there a real limitation that they had to overcome?

    They claim it was a limitation that had to do with saves, but if that's true or not is up to you to decide.

    Does it matter really ?If you like what it has to offer then you shouldn't care.

    Most likely yes, which would only prove that competition is a good thing.

    competition is an amazing thing it helps to better the products. But if you put a 10 game limitation on just to make more money thats really messed up and i will not support that. I just don't know if i should purchase a gateway or Sky.

    i think it was a limitation which they did not know how to over come until some smart guy on some forum showed them how to remove it & now you have sky3ds v2.

    even the talented gateway team didn't know how to make their gateway region free until someone else showed them how it's done. :)

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Sorry, but they provided cards with no game limit to early Chinese reviewers, it was added as an artificial limitation in order to fuck with customers and milk them out of money.
    A stupid, greedy decision.

    So, you're sure that the early review prototypes were capable of holding thousands of saves on a single cart, and the decision for the limit wasn't made as part of the backlash they got when their cheap carts couldn't hold more than 10 on average?

    Here in Gbatemp there was a discussion related to this. It would be really tiring looking for it, but if you wish use the search tool and if you find it post the link here.

    Sorry, I would do that, but it would take a lot of work and I am kind of busy.

    There's no one on this forum that can prove you wrong or right, all you can do is guess... and use common sense.

    Or, you know, people could back up their claims with credible sources.

    What source can one possibly have to prove that sky3ds released the flashcart with a 10 game limit because they were greedy, or vice versa ?

    If it were proven that Chinese reviewers did have access to carts with no game limit like sarkwalvein said, then it would be logical to assume it was just an artificial limit, no?

    That's not a fact either, what IF not ?

    To prove something you need a chain of clear facts, you can't base a proof on IF's.

    For all we know what you mentioned is a myth either.

    I never said that it was fact. You asked what source someone could provide that would prove one way or the other, and I gave you an example.

    Well that doesn't change the fact that no one on this forum can prove the OP wrong or right...

    I have a Question, too.
    Is the Sky3DS supporting things like emunand and cia install (devkit) like the Gateway?
    Or is it worth to wait for the Gateway 9.2 update and don't use the sky3ds?

    Hopefully you can find it later when you're free and not procrastinating work right now because I can't find it for the life of me.


    No it's not. Better wait for 9.2 update. but if you can't wait just get Sky3DS.

    All sky3ds supports is region locked games. nothing else.
