    The Gateway 3DS has gone into production and is available for pre-order. The team has reached out to me and provided a bit more information. I have quoted them below. Please read what they have to say and then discuss your opinions in this thread.

    Update 7/12/13
    The Gateway 3DS team has reached out once again to answer some questions. Instead of making a new thread I am simply going to quote their comments as an update to this news post.

    They closed their comments by stating that the launch is only a few days away. They hope to add updated support and more features shortly after launch.

    Looks like I'll have to wait before I can buy a new 3DS XL that'll be Gateway-friendly. That sucks~

    I want to know what they mean by that.

    Actually it's kind of smart that they're throwing an update out on a older firmware. This way tons of people won't buy it and won't have to worry about Nintendo.

    But let me get this straight: If you have firmware 5.X or 6.X you will be able to use Gateway, but the team will not provide updates (support) your firmware?

    The reason I am asking this is because I have some eShop credit left which I would like to spend on Fire Emblem DLC. But in order to buy DLC I have to be on the latest firmware. Is it a good idea to update now from 5.X to 6.X (and buy the DLC I want) before Nintendo will release another update which will not be supported by Gateway?

    Their Homepage says they hopefully will rollout the first units within a fortnight (that's 14 days for those of you who weren't born in the middle ages).

    Lmao they just disabled the comments on their youtube page... guess they learned from gbatemp. Shut it down before the shitstorm begins

    Well, it's risky, but if you really want it, go ahead. Any time you deal with flashcards, you deal with risks.

    Before people start crying that they won't be able to launch newer games on the system I'd like to point something out. According to a certain developer, the minimum firmware version check is in the unsigned portion of the ROM and can be patched without breaking signature integrity. This means that newer ROM's could theoretically be patched to work on firmwares lower than the ones required, much like on the PS3 or the Wii. If this turns out to be true, you won't need to update your system at all (unless online interaction will require it) so practically you're good to go and the Gateway shouldn't become obsolete anytime soon, even if the loophole is patched.

    Denounced after testing.

    "I see that you said it only works on 4.5 firmwares?"
