    So i've heard the DSTWO+ only supports online play for a limited number of titles. Is this true?
    And how about Gateway? Does it support online play for all titles or just a few?

    Im not sure which card to buy, but right now im mostly leaning towards DSTWO+ seeing how its cheapers, only 1 card, has more features and a lot more plugins made by its users

    Also does anyone know a trustworthy EU seller?

    PS: i have a n3dsXL 9.2

    EDIT: any reputable EU sellers? looking for a DSTWO+ :))))))

    don't bother using dstwo+ for 3ds games before scteam make their own launcher.
    if you can use gw/dstwo+, try cfw.
    if you really want flashcart to play 3ds games so bad, pick gw for now.
    if you really want to have ds2+, use it for ds games and emulators, and use cfw to play 3ds games.

    would like to say sky3ds is better than these two, its the only one can support V10.3 directly, and no limit on consoles, can also play online with private headers

    ... but can't run CIAs and stuff... nor CFW...
    for OP- I don't own any of this, but if I had the money I would buy the dstwo+ - it works for DS gams, it has GBA emulator (better then gpsp) and it also can run CFW. what can be better? the blue card of GW need some messing to get it working, the DSTWO+ don't.

    No, i can use Pasta CFW on sky3ds and play CIAs on version under 9.3, dstwo+ does better than dstwo, but they are out of style now. if it released before sky3ds, i would think its the best

    Don't forget newer games don't work on sky3ds unless they're AP patched.

    That's like saying a quad bike is better than a car. Sure it can be used in dense bushland where a car can't go, but you can't use it to commute to work, or drive to get groceries, or go interstate which are things people usually require of their vehicles.

    You can but release 3.5 has a warning about brick code, so stick to 3.4.1.

    Can't DSTWO+ and Gateway 3ds also play online with private headers?

    Gateway is better because it has two stickers on the cart, ds+ has only one.

    Firstly if he's under 9.3 he wouldn't even need a Sky card in the first place. SKY3DS should be your last resort and only used if you are above 9.2! For everything else go for a GW card or slap a CFW on to it.

    Any reasons you would go for GW instead of DSTWO+?

    Only if you were on old 3ds and want to update emuNAND to latest, and want cheat support (which you could always do with NTR I believe).

    Yup, because theres always a chance of brick! GW even said so ever so subtly in one of their updates. IMHO I would go the CFW way.

    I think the poll says it all. All hail Gateway!
