This is the real moment of truth for the Gateway 3DS cart; it's first firmware challenge. The Gateway3DS team probably has a lot of potential buyers driving them to update the cart to work on the current firmware, if the money isn't enough to encourage them to get it working then it's pretty much DOA unless they hand it off to someone else to poke at it.

By the looks of it, it has been blocked but how come, if it not out there for nintendo to block?

because nintendo are smart and they can assume how someone has done something like this

its like someone going "theres a hole somewhere in this area" and when you point it out you can look and find it

yall should be more optimistic, for one thing that means it still works on lower firmware (so they might lower prices and sell it) and for another just because its blocked atm, that doesn't mean they wont update, no?

I don't get it. Just don't update your 3DS and your Gateway will be just fine. What's the problem?
The problem is the price tag, if that doesn't change even with this new limitation presented. Also, the option of playing newer games will be eliminated if you wish to continue using the cart. Some newer official game carts have updates on them that are needed to allow the games to play.

If it's $5 I'd buy it. :) New pokemon is coming in just over 3 months which I'd bet would require an update, which might mean this purchase would be a waste.

Believe me - many of us would be extremely happy, if we had an opportunity to play "only" several dozens games that don't need newer firmware. On the other hand - lower Gateway's price would be very appreciate :D

Would be a desaster for the gateway team il think. They never will sell many of them if its permanantly blocked by 6.0.0 before its even releasd :D And they already did a big investment into this product :S So lets wait, il hope theyre able to get it working again ;)

Some people have their hands on them already, it's possible some Nintendo employee got a hold of one or got information on one from one of the people who got one.

Alternatively, there could be something in legit carts (e.g. some chip or other) that has never been checked for previously but the new update does check for. Seeing as it wasn't checked for before, Gateway never bothered to add it to their cart, and so it fails the new checks.

Personally, I think it's pretty funny if it has indeed been blocked already (which the signs do point towards).

I see, thanks for the info & to the other's who reply to my post. Hopefully, DSTWO team gets a copy of gateway and makes a good flash card (or better yet we get CFW).

I am with you on that. But of course I dont think they will create a video anytime soon. Psh
I just dont get it. Seriously... Why post a video IF 1. product wasnt finished supposly. 2. They will keep changing the release date.

The Gateway site said by the End of June, not "Expected Release Date: June 15th" which was what one of the retailers said.
