    I mean this is really important, SkyTeam(tm).
    You cant advertise, "Unlimited!!" when in fact there is an imposed limit.

    It's a true story that no matter how big your sd card is you will not be able to write more than 31 games.
    I bought a 128gb microsd for my NN3DS(aus) and cant even use have of it because of this limit!
    You guys said that you were working on a fix a couple of weeks back. We are still waiting for you.

    Thank you for this card. You are appreciated.

    buy smaller sd cards or write bigger games but really dude it takes 8-10 seconds to switch a games 31 is a lot of games and a lot of time to cycle all those games

    Send that post to them, not the gbatemp forum. Get a smaller sd card, 64gb is cheap now a days. Even if the 128gb was the same price as the 64gb, I'd still get the 64gb for the 3ds. No god damn way I'm gonna pile in all those games just to keep clicking that shit.

    The 3DS has 31 good games? Ha! :rofl2: Seriously though, don't sweat it, they'll update the utility.

    You bought it, deal with it. There is no promises of nothing, if they don't want too, which is same with Gateway.

    You buy the product with it's advertised features at the time of purchase.

    Exactly. Sky3DS users should have no right of complaint, yeah?

    So by your logic then Gateway users have no right to complain either because even though gateway promised release and everyone has to wait, sky3ds promised an update too.

    It's like saying you shouldn't be sad because others have it worse. Inversely, you shouldnnt be happy because other people are happier.
    Everyone has the right to complain or argue.

    I have around 20 games on mine and it's a pain to cycle through them. I can't even imagine having 30+ to have to cycle through. I'm actually tempted to purchase a 95MB/s microSD card just to improve my switching times.

    The fact is, 90% of posts you see are whining people over Gateway and Sky3ds. Who gives a shit about updates, play other games or systems, watch movies or get laid and wait for when it happens at some point, instead of acting a like spoilt kid who cannot have what they want.

    There is more to life than obsessing over stuff like this ffs.

    this is a 31 game limit per sd card and not a 31 total game limit correct?

    has anyone actually tested if faster microsd even makes a difference with sky3ds?

    Retro why are you trolling my thread bro?
    I know ur still mad about Gateway bricking you and then adding insult to injury by having you hit F5 all through the holidays while we Sky3ds customers were busy playing games on the latest firmware,
    but sheesh kid calm down. It's really not that serious.

    Back on topic,
    SkyTeam did say that another writer was coming that would free the limit from 31 games to "unlimited". The purpose of my post here is to communicate with them.
    They obviously come here daily and have $invested$ in this site. So, I know for certain that they read it. After all, they have promo going here now. I just wanted to
    remind them that they still have customers waiting for this support.

    When I eventually buy a blue button cart, I don't think I'll even bother playing more than 3 games at a time with it, as that cycling time is annoying as fuck. My 8GB card is probably enough for 2 or 3 games.

    Also, is the slow cycling time related to sd card speed, OS speed, or the cart's hardware speed?

    I also have the same question:
    Is the slow cycling time related to SDcard speed, OS speed, or the cart's hardware speed?
    another question guys:
    has someone confirmed that the new sky3ds cart (blue button) allows for more than 10 games? i want confirmation.

    I can confirm you can put more then 10 games on it!
    I use a 32GB SD cart but only stor 15 games on it, cause of the cycling, yes it takes time and is not really related to the SD, i use a class 10 sd and it still takes time :D
    But i don't complain! it works and that's what count
