    Since the Sky3DS limit is unnecessary I was wondering if they'd ever release a Sky3DS 2.0 with no limit in order to compete with Gateway's 9.20 exploit.

    If there was no limit I'd get one. Plug + play with no worry about exploits or emunand or anything would be worth the premium to me.

    What do you think?

    No homebrew, no region free, no firmware spoofing, no ability to load modified games, no .cia loading, no EmuNAND, no rom menu.

    Probably not.

    Nah, probably because of the whole region-locking thing, if that could be overcome and with a cheaper price, then maybe.

    - No region free
    - Can't play eshop games
    - Takes like a minute to swap a game via button
    - "Homebrew"

    While I may consider getting one, these are major deal breakers for me that warrant the use of a gateway.

    No i still prefer Gateway. Sky 3ds doesnt have a good multirom feature, imagine pressing that button 100 times

    You wanted to see where I live? You stalker...
    The amount of times to press a button to switch through more than 10 games... Actually, just switching between 10 games is annoying enough...

    As a >4.5 owner and if Gateway can't deliver I would certainly consider it. Though no menu is certainly a pain.

    The cost of a Gateway and a 4.5 is about $300 vs $100 for sky.

    If I was starting with nothing I would go 4.5 or N3DS + Gateway.

    I don't like the way you switch games (takes too long, 1 by 1), though if it were the only method of playing games (with no limit) then yes I would consider buying one.

    Unfortunately for sky3ds, Gateway offers too much more compared to sky3ds for a cheaper price.

    Sky3DS < $30.
    Sell it as is without the limit for around $30 and I would consider it.

    Not everyone needs region-free, I know I sure won't. If its able to load roms, so far to be proven to work on FW 9.3, it'll work.

    I would buy one for my brother, who isn't nearly as tech savy, but I'll stick with the gateway.

    It doesn't do anything but emulate carts, 1 at a time. I mean, it has multirom, but even that's as slow as switching out actual carts. It's just a piracy machine.
