Gadgets – R4 3DS SDHC

Date:  June 115, 2018

[Disclaimer: This blog post is for education purpose.  The purpose is to educate my friends there are such things available.]

I bought this from Amazon.  It shipped directly to my home.


This is 2018 version.  I think buy the latest version the better.

It is about US$23.99 per piece.

If you are lazy, I am pretty sure you can buy it from Qoo10.  Or you can just visit all the game stores in Sim Lim, I am sure you can get from there for more than S$100 plus plus.
