    Here's a crappy video for those that don't have a GW or can't get in the beta. The video would have been up sooner if I realized you press select to browse your games, it also would have been a lot shorter if I was patient enough to wait 5 seconds longer for Pokemon Y. After the 4 minute mark I recommend fast fowarding through most of it :lol:

    Some things to take from this though.
    1. 128GB works with no formats necessary
    2. Nand saving works
    3. previous save files still work.

     
    Vengenceonu and weatMod like this.

    Quick question. Do we need to mess with our previous save files such as renaming them, moving them from SD card to mSD card in GW?

    Nope. It just works.

    What about the saving?

    Is there "real time saving" aka save backup without having to exit game?

    According to the main thread with all the replies someone said so, but looking at the microSD card contents now I see no .sav files.

    If this was a few hours ago I would have recommended MT, but now that Gateway has multi-rom and supports every retail game out there I would go with Gateway. We don't even need updates at the moment (though I guess online play would be nice)

    We'd probably be better off if this thread was merged with the official Omega discussion thread, I'll request that from the moderating team. Let's not make a mess of the forums, guys - I know you're all excited about this. :)

    How did the gateway brick the 3ds? I managed to got my hands on an used 3ds running on 4.5.10 couple hours ago, paid 200 for it. Now I'm thinking about ordering the DSTwo as well as gateway or MT. If I order the gateway, will I be able to apply the 2.0 update FIRST before inserting it to my 3ds and run it? I don't want to take the chance of bricking my 3ds by trying the gateway that came with whatever version.

    Yeah now that the video is posted in the main thread this thread really isn't necessary anymore.
