    I'm waiting for my Sky3DS to arrive, and I planned on using a 32GB (class 10) SD for my ROMs. I've figured out I'd only have 22 games on there, two of which are Pokahmans and one is DK Country (I'm aware these three games take up a lot of space).

    Anyways, you guys think 32GB would be enough for this? I'm thinking of buying a 64GB card but I don't want to unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Thanks.

    I think it should be enough, because 32 gb is pretty much, back in the ds time you could use 8/16 gb which was plenty. Those games are by the way not 32gb

    You (believe me) don't want 22 roms in tour sky3DS at once, xyxling trough will be such a pain. 5-6 games is acceptable, more than that will require too much time! You can always delete/backup games from tour flashcard to tour PC and write them whenever you feel to play.

    I find the price difference between 16 and 32 to be to small to get a 16 for anything these days. If you end up needing more space get another 32 and a card carrier. As 4ur0r said you don't want to may games on one card with a sky.

    Also, you can only fit 31 games per card at any single moment!

    Don't go for 64, its really annoying to scroll through 30 games. Two 32gb cards are much better, just be sure to switch to next game before changing microsd (switching games copies save from sky3ds cart to microsd).

    My 64GB card for my GW fits 60+ trimmed games. So getting a 64GB for Sky would be pointless since it only lets you have 31 games on one card.
