    Just because this website isn't on the official reseller list, doesn't mean they sell fake cards.

    Probably. There have been fakes on the market for a while.

    No, because it's listed on ShopTemp, which IMO is enough to believe that it is a legit seller. Not only that, but I haven't heard any complaints from people who have bought theirs from there.

    I bought one from there, no problems and diagnostics check went well. They even sent me the card and the sticker separately, which was nice, I hate crooked stickers.

    I don't get it, this section of the 3ds forum is about hacking and homebrew. Why post this shit in here?

    Pretty sure your right, especially on the colour variations. My launch card has the dark blue writing as is clearly real (no fakes). Same with the box, they changed from plastic and clear tray to cardboard and fuzzy tray.

    I don't quite remember, but I'll check. It took about a week to get to me, which was faster than expected.

    Found it:

    Buy it, authenticate with images available to you from the web, report to seller. If the seller refuses to pay for shipping than file fraud with CC. All you need to say is that the item which was sold was not as described.

    Both types of packaging are real.

    Early cards come in a plastic box with a clear plastic tray. Later cards are in a cardboard box with a fuzzy tray :).

    Packaging can be misleading, though. My card is legit and came with no packaging at all except bubble wrap.

    Got my card for $55~ at a local shop. In China they range anywhere from $50-65, depending on the store. They probably will get more expensive when Gateway does release the 9.0-2 exploit, or that's what the shop owner was saying whom I bought the Gateway from.
