Since Pokemon X & Y is around the corner I thought now would be a good time to pick up a 3ds Xl. I was looking into the Gateway 3ds and the firmware 4.5 or lower requirement. However I have a few questions. I was thinking of picking up a physical copy of pokemon Y and wasn't sure if that would have firmware requirement that would prohibit me room playing if I didn't upgrade. Also I heard that currently you can't play online multi-player with the Gateway 3ds. A major reason I am upgrading is to play this game and other multi player games. So, my question is it worth it to get the gateway 3ds currently? That and do you think pokemon will have a mandatory firmware update to play the single/multi-player.
