    i placed an order for a 32gb card, but i think its an overkill, should i cancel my order?

    what size for 3ds xl should be enough?
    if it helps, im yet to recieve my 3ds xl, so i have the 4gb one that comes with it too, and i plan to buy mix of physical carts and digital downloads.

    and what size do you use?
    thanks

    I personally use a 16GB card, but a little more that 4GB is actually used.
    I would keep the 32GB however, for when hacks/emulators for the system are actually released.
    Think down the road.

    Digital downloads can potentially be as big as 4GB (Although I have a hunch that Nintendo may be limiting digital releases to a max game size of 2GB but don't take my word on that.) Mine has an 8GB sdhc card, and as I'm a person that doesn't like carrying carts around, mine might be too small. IDK yet, It's hard to find discounts on the eshop, so expect to pay more for digital downloads or lug the carts around and save your money.

    No point in overbuying now, if you need a bigger card later it will only be cheaper to buy then.

    I only say keep it since he already bought it. Still less $$ now than buying a smaller one today and upgrading later.

    Except you have to factor in the price you already paid for the lower size card in the first place...
