    I got my new 3DS today and quickly got rid of the hideous AC cover plates :) It came with an 8GB MicroSD. I plan to play some games and maybe watch a video now and then. How large an SD should I get? Is 32GB plenty? I don't know how much space the game saves, etc. take up. I got a 32GB for my original 3DS XL. Thanks.

    If you got the HHD 3ds you wouldn't be able to use the CFW's.

    It depends, would you buy on the E-Shop often?

    In this situation, more is always better.

    True enough. Better to have and not need, I guess.

    Purchased an O3DS last week and didn't come with sd card. So I got 5 :lol: various capacity 8GB-32GB and microSDHC + SDHC (dont think you will be dissappointed with a 32GB but as above more is better). You could have 1 dedicated to movies etc etc.
    It pays to have multiples imo. :yay:

    Honestly, even though I almost never use it all, I buy a 32 gig class 10 from sandisk for $12. Can't go wrong with that.
