What card do you want for X-mas gift?

X-mas is coming! So what’s your plan for this winter? Outside is so cold, believe most people will stay home :)  Then game is the main entertainment. Choose a pretty good card for your friend or family will be a great gift~

What i recommend first is this: R4i SDHC 3DS. Every year they will release a X-mas version and this year is as same! X-mas version r4i 3ds is begin to sell on The package is beautiful and very suitable as a gift.

The second i recommend is ace3ds plus. They released a blue card for X-mas, that is smart. When the ace3ds plus just come out, what i see is a big pink USB card reader..that is too..girl. Most players is boys i think, so pink is not suitable as gift, and many parents always ask me is there any other color for choice as their child is boy. Now blue one is great!

The other cards such as dstwo, r4i gold 3ds, acekard 2i is good also. Let’s enjoy the game in this winter!
