    They came from a real gateway reseller as listed on Gateways site, but didn't come in the normal box that is advertised, rather a proper 3ds cart case, which i don't mind as it can hold more carts! I've read mixed posts about what to look out for and all i really can see that has a trait is the gold-fingers and their sizes?

    Heres one of my sets

    with back

    and front

    That's not a real car.

    Looks pretty similar to my legit Gateway though.

    According to the images in that thread, it's real. The center pin is longer, same as mine.

    I wonder why these clones don't spend more effort to make it look the same... making the center pin longer like the real GW would have been a simple change. Maybe they want clones to be easily spotted? :P

    What is the disadvantage of having a fake Gateway cart? They still play games and stuff right?

    No they will fuck up your system and they don't work with gateways updates (You can't update the card)

    What I find strange on mech images, the Pin size is Real , But the gateway sign is blue where as it shows on fake , and real black .

    Now mech images Real size Pin , and gateway sign is Blue , like a Pick and Mix

    Must be real are not ?... , most likely real ., because the microSD slot is Curved , where fake flat .
