    If I have a 3DS with an old firmware for Gateway purposes, can I access the Eshop and download games? When I try to access the Eshop, it says it requires an update.

    I'm considering it. I'm not getting a Gateway, but I'd get a flashcart if they find a way to get more than one game on there and emulators. So I'm afraid to kill my chances of that in the future. It's my kid's system, and I'd rather not have cartridges that he can lose
