Even if their claim about all firmware’s/all 3ds models is true, it is still hard to justify the $75- 120$ price tag for non-replaceable 10 games. Though it is still a good start and the makers (or makers of new generation clone flashcards) will probably remove this non-replaceable 10 games crap if they want to make money. That is IF the SKY3DS is true.
Have a look at their site for more info and decide yourselves if it is for you. It is only 1-2 weeks away if they hold on to their promise.
