    1. Can someone tell me if Sk3DS does circumvent the region lock on DS, 3DS & N3DS?

    I heard that something about the region unlocking in Gateway 3DS would brick consoles. Is this true?

    The only thing Sky3ds is able to do is emulate 3ds roms on a specific region with a max limit of 31 games per card. So that's no emunand nor cia installation.

    So I take it Gateway 3DS is going to be the better choice with no limit whatsoever?

    Will I have to use 2 different cards though with Gateway 3DS depending on if I'm going to play DS or 3DS games?

    Nobody actually knows how the N3DS exploit works, but most probably it's gonna be via a QR code. So the only thing you need is the red card.

    But will I still need a grey and a red card depending on if I want to play DS or 3DS/N3DS games?

    The blue card is only for 4.x users and I think you wont have much use of it on the N3DS since it doesnt use the old exploit.

    Is there speculation when Gateway 3DS will support N3DS?

    31 limit? I'm not as familiar with Sky3DS as I am GW but is this a permanent limit like the 10 before or just 31 game limit at any one time?

    - sky3ds red button = 10 games limit, can use tweak to play more than 10 games but u can only save 10 games
    - sky3ds blue button = 31 games limit for each micro sd because of the bug in disk writer, however it might get fixed in new ver of disk writer.
