I read this and wanted a discussion about it. Is this true? Someone said while in sleep mode the gateway gets very hot and uses a lot of battery life. It was the first time I have heard this. Any thoughts?

my thoughts is its a load of crap.....yeah you probably save some battery(but i wouldnt say its anything major) if you take the card out, but if you plan to leave the console in sleep mode for days anyway, just turn the damn thing off XD

i have no idea where the "it gets hot" came from, but even after hours of use the card could barely be described as warm

maybe someone left their 3ds on a radiator in sleep mode and suddenly came to the conclusion that it was off and gateway was hot, so it must be the gateway fault :rolleyes:

I keep mine in sleep mode all the time. I only turn it off, when i need to transfer files to the big SD-Card. Been doing that since the exploit for 9.2 came out. No problems so far.

yeah i think some people are just basing stuff off what the DSTWO does i.e drains batteries and can get hot, i havent noticed any difference in battery between retil and gateway card....well maybe ever so slight, but even then i couldn't say for sure......probably just about the same with variations of not having wifi on etc

and i have never felt the gateway get hot at all

either that, or someone got a faulty card thats shorting out, getting hot and draining the battery....but i would imagine if that was to happen the card wouldn't work anyway

I've been using CIA's for a couple days and I leave my Gateway out of my 3DS and it's a HUGE difference. While using the red card, I had to charge my 3DS everyday. Now it will last 3 days easy with the same gameplay.

well i dont know what the regular battery life on my XL was pre gateway, but its around 4.5 hours before it goes from full to red, with moderate to no 3D and headphones, with around 3 hours of sleepmode in between.
sleepmode works fine both running a game and from homescreen.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
