    Hi!

    I have been searching Google for a while with no luck. I am looking for somewhere in Shanghai to purchase the New Sky3DS for my N3DS 9.2.0J.

    I am also interested in any suggestions as to what would be great deals to pick up while in Shanghai. Is there any product that is a must when travelling to Shanghai?

    Does anyone know of a good store that sells video games/video game related merchandise/flashcarts in Shanghai?

    Your best bet is to just look around for any kind of gaming or electronic shops

    I've heard from my uncle that there are malls dedicated to knockoff stuff in shanghai. I would look there.

    I live in China, Shanghai has a bunch of game shops, ask someone to take you to a big electronics market or ask around what game shops are good. Flashcards are everywhere, I can go out and buy Gateways practically anywhere I go.

    Do you have any suggestion as to where to go with this place as reference? Walking distance preferred, taxi is also okay. Sky3DS / Gateway / Ez Flash IV is of interest at the moment.

    Unfortunately Google is blocked in China, and my VPN is on the fritz. But I don't live in Shanghai, but most of the good gaming stuff is either in Shanghai or Guangzhou. You're gonna have to search in Chinese to get any real results. Try “好游戏店在上海” if you know the part of Shanghai or prefecture you'll be staying in that will definitely help out. Next time my VPN works, I'll check online or ask some friends if that area has any good gaming shops.

    Thanks a lot! I know about how troublesome it can be with VPN in China. I had one which worked fine maybe one time, Facebook and all, but then it managed to get blocked somehow.
