We clearly see that QQ3DS pro has more features than sky3ds+ in our first impressions. The common features are they can both play 3ds games , AP checks solved ,drag and drop , copy and play no need diskwriter, with firmware upgrade-able. That is to say , they use the same solutions for playing 3ds games, as the QQ3DS PRO 3DS Mode card and sky+ are all from the same factory but not the same distributors which they labelled different sticker separately , they are all original from un-labelled neutral cartridge factory. So , you may not arbitrarily or simply say that QQ3DS pro is just clone of sky+ lol, but the same original 3ds cartridge in physical design.  The big differences are QQ3DS pro card can play DS games besides playing 3DS games, what’s more , also included the best value stuff – a 16GB MicroSDHC memory card in package. So far as we known, flashcard users have to buy memory card separately which cost at least 15USD in the market. The QQ3DS DS mode card which used as playing ds games should be R4I 3DS , we known, the R4I 3DS card should cost at least about 10USD. The USB card reader also cost 2USD if buying extra.

Market  price in official site for those things
Sky3ds plus  priced at least 87USD
R4I 3DS 10USD
16GB 15USD
USB card reader 2USD

QQ3DS PRO priced at 90USD

Sky3ds plus + R4I 3DS + 16GB memory card + USB card reader

All you buy,  will cost 87+10+15+2=114 USD

While , if you buy a QQ3DS pro to instead of those , you only need pay for 90USD to enjoy all of them. In other way, if you just want to buy sky3ds+ only , you just need to pay for 3USD more to buy QQ3DS PRO. On the other hand, it imply sky3ds+ has obtained more profit than QQ3DS pro. Mathematicians in life , will you make a wise decision for choosing them ?

As ordinary consumers, pay more attention to cost-effective, additional functionality is no harm for us anyway. Spend less money and get more extra, a lot of consumers’ , including myself, common psychological portrayal.

In order to convenient for users to buy original sky+ or QQ3DS Pro, editor strongly recommend you to buy from their officials

QQ3DS is available for New 3DS region free with NTR CFW 2.0/2.1

The releases just don’t stop, we shared news on NTR CFW 2.0, which is a New 3DS homebrew project that let you play games from any regions on your Japanese New 3DS. With quite a quick turnaround, NTR CFW 2.1 has already been released. This one gives you region-free games on all versions of the New 3DS/XL/LL. In other words, you can play Japanese games on your North American or European New 3DS/XL. Again, this only lets you play legitimate carts (QQ3DS) and is not a method that allows for piracy.

NTR CFW 2.1 is a custom firmware designed for New 3DS/XL/LL, with such features:
Region Free. Region-locked games could be launched in Home Menu directly.
CFW Menu. Press X+Y in games or Home Menu will show the NTR CFW Menu, to take screenshots or interact with plugins.
Plugin support. Users can develop or install their own plugins with libntrplg, plugin will run in the background and is callable via NTR CFW Menu. (screenshot is a built-in plugin now)

And there are more features to be discovered.

Known issues:
You have to hold on power button until the power LED is off to turn off your console in NTR Mode.

Requirements:
1 A New 3DS/3DSXL/LL with firmware 8.1.0/9.1.0/9.2.0. (We will add supports for old3ds and other regions later, however firmware >= 9.3.0 might never be supported);
2 A Cubic Ninja gamecard, using a eShop version is ok.

FAQ

  • Does this work on the latest firmware version ? Yes, Firmware v9.4 is supported perfectly!
  • Does this let me run homebrew and/or roms ? No, it just lets you run legit physical games from other regions.
  • Do I need to connect to the internet every time I want to use this ? Yes.
  • Do I need a flashcart/game/hardware for this ? No.
  • Will this work on my New 3DS ? No, at the moment this only works on 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS models v9.x
  • Will it ever work on the New 3DS ? Maybe. I don’t plan on working on it, like, ever, but the code is out there now so…
  • Will this break or brick my 3DS ? No. There’s virtually 0 chance of that happening, all this runs is run of the mill usermode code, nothing dangerous. Nothing unusual is written to your NAND, nothing permanent is done. With that in mind, use at your own risk, I won’t take responsibility if something weird does happen.
  • Do you take donations ? No, I do not.

QQ3DS : The best 3ds/ds flashcart for New3DS / XL / LL V9.4.0-21 ?

After QQ3DS team announced they were releasing QQ3DS , they officially launched QQ3DS to public sale on Jan.14th,2015. That’s good news for who guys are waiting for it come out. At early time,editor guessed the price will lower than sky3ds for QQ3DS promised to offer the most competive price with more features as they can, just as I made the guess , the final sold price only $76, that’s really an amazing friendly price with much more advantages comparing with other common 3ds flashcards.

qq3ds card
Very humor and fun to us, QQ3DS even disdain gateway for Gw3ds hadn’t supported new 3ds so far but just making their users(ing) with endless waiting for, also disdain the similar 3ds flashcards such as sky/r5/k3ds has a high price to date. Quoted their wonderful news here:

Today, we’re proud of releasing QQ3DS , the best 3DS&DS Dual-mode flashcards for New 3DS and other any versions of 2DS/3DS/3DSXL devices, supporting all the way up to newest sysnand firmware V9.4.0-21!
Neither like some team still making users with endless wait for New3DS compatibility, nor cost inflated price to get poor and less features.
The QQ3DS is officially launched with the personalized features and friendly price, only US$76 , to feedback all of honestly QQ3DS fans!!”

We have to admit they care more  for users , just look at packing added DS flashcard and USB 2.0 card reader expect 3ds flashcard,even if someone will think those just tiny points improvement , but they are trying do the best for users as they can.
Their purpose is clear that QQ3DS will focus on new 3DS / NEW3DSXL and new 3DSLL market, editor think it’s nice idea for the aim and they will sold many cards out with more and more 3ds users trend to buy new 3DS devices.

buy QQ3DS

Editor still think about a question that if QQ3DS has no game limit and also with region free , that will be welcome by more guys for their 3DS or new 3ds consoles…And at the same time , they will be more popular day by days.

QQ3DS vs Sky3ds

At beginning of the new year 2015 , QQ3DS team announced an amazing 3ds flashcard – QQ3DS (officially named “Quick Quality 3DS/DS card”, not the Chinese guys thought Tencent QQ ^@@^ ). This QQ3DS card can be used for playing backup 3DS/DS games directly on newest FW9.4.0-21, which defined as first dual-mode 3ds flashcard in the world. What’s exactly features of the QQ3DS on box?

QQ3DS Features

  • First Dual-mode 3DS card to support all versions of 3DS/3DS XL,2DS,New 3DS(xl/ll) (JP,US,EU)
  • Compatible with newest V9.4.0-21 (include lower versions)

    • Compatible with any MicroSD 2GB,4GB,8GB,16GB,32GB,64GB,128GB SDHC/SDXC card.

    In functions, sky3ds seems has less features than QQ3DS (not only can play 3ds games but also ds games). It’s said that QQ3DS is created to meet personalized gaming needs. Is QQ3DS really so powerful as we expected ?
    Don’t worry , let’s watching the official video below:

Lastly, how about difference in price? As far as editor known, most of guys complaint sky3ds has high price, what’s about QQ3DS price ? The “one price , two enjoys” seems good, but will it really be cheaper price but more features included?  Let us focus on offcial news of QQ3DS
