Hi, I've just bought my first 3DS XL and have no idea what sd card I should buy. Since 32 gb is more than enough I've been looking on amazon for one but don't know what's compatible.

Are any of these good:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-SDSDU-032G-FFP-SDHC-UHS-I-Cla...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-Premium-Memory-Frustration-...

Thanks for any help.

They probably would work but honestly the SD card the system comes with is enough. All the data is stored on the gamecarts, the friends still on the friends list in the actual system, and the only things that go on the SD card is Eshop games and apps, and any photos/videos taken.

My opinion anyway, but if you plan on downloading a ton of things from the eshop an upgrade may be needed.

For size, personally I use a 16GB so I never run out of space. 32GB is overkill, but if you find one for cheap why not? You can always use it for something else if you need to. Honestly, if you're planning on buying a lot of digital games, you'll want more than 2GB.

Don't let GameStop rip you off. Support used gaming and check out 99Gamers. Best trading service I've used.
