Hey guys, You opinion matters to me. I plan on picking up a 3ds XL and find myself with struggling with the "best" console for me. I understand that if you pickup an older "copyright 2012" you get the 4.5 firm wear and can use the gateway to play some older games. With the black Friday deals I might be able to get the new Zelda in the package for 150 the internet rumors and I can wait till boxing day even if its not, but I guess the point is.. The only games I really want to play are the Top sellers Fire Emblem, Zelda and Pokémon, so I could get them all for around 250$ But I am interested in playing the DS original Zelda and fire emblem titles. I would hate to miss out on the gateway, I guess the gateway is like 80 bucks and you need SD cards, so like 150ish extra, is it worth it? With the Gateway can you still play retail carts, or does the games make you upgrade to the new firmware, like is it one or the other?
