    After doing a lot of digging on the internet for flashcards i finally found someone selling for a crazy low price and accepting paypal (not from china ) - I felt reluctant on giving my credit card details to china, paypal was the only safe option for me.
    Is there a way to tell if you're sky3ds card is fake or legit ?

    Does anyone else think that its weird the SKY3DS has no writing on the package not even a serial number ! - Its almost as if someone is making these in their bedroom !

    I think its weird they are using blatant images from Michael Bay's Transformers.

    Even with the 3 revisions of the card the Transformers theme has been consistent.. very weird.

    Damn that image is so big it makes my browser lag!

    On a more serious note, lol I'd never trust someone from china, unless...it's in a store. Online, hell no.

    Not really. I'm using Firefox, and it managed to load all the page, plus the image, all in a split second...

    Although the OP could put some spoiler tags in for the mobile data users.

    except for AP games.

    OP should've gotten a +

    and what's that strange misleading title? it's not like a blue button 3ds is anything spectacular.

    Ya good point I suppose but they work great for like 95% of 3ds games and the price of these will surly drop but I have to admit the + is better ;)
