    Conclusão.

    If the dealer nor the gateway knows what to do because the team has not given the gateway instructions or tools to repair my nintendo 3ds XL how can I believe in the gateway that all staff will be solved?

    Se nem o revendedor do gateway sabe o que fazer porque a equipe do gateway não deu instruções nem ferramentas para reparar meu nintendo 3ds XL como posso acreditar na equipe do gateway que tudo será resolvido?

    I really feel for your loss. Although I now have 14 legit 3DS games that I bought, I understand why there are flashcarts and why people buy them. I do not condone piracy, but I condone entrepreneurs like gateway bricking peoples systems. That is like vandalism in my opionion and should be punished by law. unfortunately they are in china where there is now law :(

    I hope they are going bankrupt after that stunt!

    I guess it was the right decision to just turn of my 3ds and sit this one out.
    Best of luck to you OP.

    I dont like their attitude in the mails so far...
    All this bricks occuring after 2.02b. Still they see no connection and accuse everybody of being members of the mafia.
    I just hope GW is actually fixing this. Dont care if they do it silently.

    How can you still doubt this is real? Even reviewers have gotten bricks at this point. Surley i have seen the cloners posting here but I dont think they would go to this lenghts to make GW look bad.
    Also its not that weird to think somebody registering to the site after they have a problem.
    I lurked here since around 3 years but decided to register after I got my GW card..

    Does anyone else find it weird that 90% of the bricks seem to be Brazilian?

    There are numerous reasons for this one is the high price of games in Brazil.

    1 game out in Brazil on average USD 62.17 and USD 100 for new games launched.
    1 Nintendo 3ds XL USD 497.33.

    You know that if you condone something it basically means you don't really mind it, right? Condoning the bricking is saying you're accepting it.

    Not being rude at you bro, but their custom. I am not from Brazil though, never even been there. I just researched their gaming markets.

    Edit:

    Basically, Brazil, Portugal, Italy and Russian Federation has some of the most notorious customs in the world.

    The gaming in Brazil is extremely expensive as the government put a lot of tax on video games. It doesn't stop Brazilians from buying video games though as they really love Nintendo products down there. They find that it's only a one time investment and paying a premium doesn't matter as long as they are going to get a lot of entertainment from it.

    my apologies. I wish there was a way to get 3ds systems down there at a fair price not a price gouging price.

    thanks for letting me know. I meant: I condemn gateway for bricking ppls 3ds. I do't condemn piracy, because I understand the reasons for its existence.
