    Well, that's cool, I'm of course going to just wait for the reviews and video coverage before I jump on board though. Perfect timing too, I just ordered my regular DSTwo. :unsure:

    Edit: Farther Opinions

    Read the english version, seems it's essentially a DSTwo with more RAM and a slightly more powerful CPU with Gateway Emulation? Mmm- I'm good with the standard version, if gateway ever updates to support 10.1.0-27 and it works on this- I'll order one, but that's pretty much the only way I'd consider it.

    Honestly, CFW will probably end up > then flashcarts anyway.

    Now, the only way this could've been truly awesome is if they added the button and internals of Sky3DS but instead, made the button toggle the cart from DS mode to 3DS mode- and wrote a DS mode plugin that allows you to control what 3DS game is flashed instead of the "button to toggle through roms" method that the stupid Sky3DS uses. GUI > Toggle Buttons after all.

    So from what I understand from the Chinese version (based on the Gateway pic), it's a Gateway clone + 3 other consoles support ?

    Google Translate :

    "Analog Gateway 3ds card, no two cards directly overlooked blue card section. Gateway plug-in can support 3DS games. No lock area limitation, any version of the game can be played, not to break the genuine system certainly can not cross. Cross-playing games is very good flashcard function, such as God did not have to play a genuine fundamental play. US version, Japanese version, the Hong Kong version of the game can be played. Plug-in installation method is the same as the previous method DSTWO, Gateway Use Please click below "GW Tutorial" connection."

    It seems like a Gateway Card without the need for additional hardware.

    i was about to edit my previous post but figure out i would reply you...
    it's a DSTWO and a gateway on the same card basically...
    the other 3 "consoles" are just the NDS normal card with the emulators that we currently have...

    edit: http://eng.supercard.sc/

    they say the dstwo+ do emulate a gateway card...

    Hope it packs in a 1.5 Ghz quad Cortex. :P
    Lets keep up the SC tradition of battery hogging flashcart CPUs. :P

    "No region limitation, any version games can work on any version 3DS."

    Am I misunderstanding something, or is it implying that it will work on 9.3+?

    probably some missinformation to spread hype... i place my bet the "asterisk" on that sentence is that you must use EMUNAND for use it with all version 3ds
    or maybe just misleading translation that says "you can use a japanese game on a european 3ds (for example)"

    The specs are listed on their official English website. They are claiming both perfect GBA and SNES emulation on the dstwo plus thanks to the doubled cpu mzh and the 32 mb of ram.

    Well I would buy this if the price is reasonable, and if it requires no additional hardware to launch gateway mode.

    I think it would have been a better idea to emulate Sky. Free CFW basically equals GW as it is.

    Would be interesting if the Gateway mode uses the DSTWO+ CPU & RAM for its Kernel Based Stuff and then uses the RAM Available in 3DS User Mode for the rest

    The site says SNES emulation is done by CATSFC. Would this be any faster than say, Retroarch's CATSFC core on an N3DS? Seems pretty unimpressive if not since *hax are free..

    Will these new specs affect DS mode homebrew?
