I have a friend who is selling his secondary 3DS, pretty much brand new for about $100. I haven't played Pokemon since Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and I REALLY want to start playing again. I was looking for a way to play 3DS ROMs for free? Does the Gateway play 3DS ROMs, not DS, but 3DS ROMs? For example, could I play Pokemon Omega Ruby with the Gateway and a MicroSD card? If yes, would the Gateway work for me needs on this specific 3DS? It's the original 3DS, not the new, nor the 2DS. My friend told me that it was running on firmware version 7.2.0-16U. Would I need a different firmware version to play 3DS ROMs? Would I need to downgrade? Also, just a side question, is there something that works pretty much like the Gateway, or similarly, but cheaper? If not, I don't mind just getting the Gateway. Sorry for all of these questions. I haven't owned a Nintendo handheld since the original Nintendo DS days. Thanks a lot!
