    I heard the Sky3DS works with cards up to 128GB.

    That's good. I was just afraid to buy a 128GB without confirmation that it worked first.

    honestly, I wouldn't go with the 128gb. It's just too big. Plus I hear there is supposedly a bug that won't allow more than 31 games or something like that. It's apparently going to be fixed by Sky3ds though. Honestly, It takes a while to cycle through a lot of games. Better to have fewer loaded at any given time in my opinion.

    Agreed, I have a 16GB micro sd with about 5 games loaded on there and the scroll speed pisses me off. I would hate to have tons of games loaded on to a single SD card. Swapping SD cards would be faster that scrolling through multiple games.

    I love it. Works most awesomely.

    ....I swear, if Sky3DS can figure out a software solution/patch to make this card Region free...
    The card would get a clean 10/10 of perfection.

    xps, Ive read all that already and most of that is fixed already. Moot.
    I have 38 games on my card right now. They all work perfect. My issue is the pain in the butt scrolling through them all. Other than that, I give the card a 8/10. It cant play other regions. If it could, it would be a 10/10 because it works on ALL firmwares. Other cards dont.

    And save editing. At least be able to use PKHex. The ability to use PKHex with Gateway is the only reason I havent bought the Sky3DS. Im waiting for GW's New Update.

    Honestly, it would be a fantastic gift/surprise if Gateway could somehow get the card working on the latest fw atleast. Like if they can get working on 9.4.021, that we be an insta-buy for me and plenty of other folks. I like being able to play any game from any region....the freedom.

    I like SLC chips but they only appear in industrial MicroSDs.

    For MLC, I use Sandisk Extreme 60M/s or the same level cards in other brand.

    Thanks I think Ill go with amazon, the price difference is not that big to risk getting a fake as you said.
