    I just bought a 3DS version 4.4 U and now I want to order my flashcard ass well. I am fairly new to this but I have read and have a rough idea how gateway 3DS works. Now I have some questions before I go ahead and order:
    -The most important thing: Where should I order from? I am currently in Finland. I read in one of the threads around here about this site :http://www.realhotstuff.hk/Gateway-3DS_bymfg_20-0-1.html. Is it legit?

    -I read that I can use the blue card from gateway to play DS games, is it hassle free or do I need to buy a separate card for DS games?

    -Since gateway is pretty damned expensive and frankly using it is quite a pain, should I just get a R4 3ds for example and wait for a better card?

    Realhotstuff has been around for years. They're reliable. The blue cart is a really easy to use cartridge. It can run DS games on its own. And don't get an R4 3DS and waste time. Go get a Supercard DSTwo.

    Oh, I really do not care about GBA emulation which I read is the main advantage of the DSTwo card...is there anything else?

    Standalone video player and no fear in regards to firmware updates that the 3DS continues to pump out. I've owned a DSTwo since it launched and it still is my primary flash chip.

    Oh ok then! I saw on the R4 site that they have different versions for different firmwares...One lastt thing, if I dd end up buying a Gatway, I can count on it to run DS games perfectly right?

    For the most part, yes. I tested some popular games and had no issues with them. Please keep in mind though that with the Gateway's blue chip, it will not work on firmware 6.2. 6.1 works fine though.

    One final final thing, I promise. Is there a shop that is located in Europe? I prefer to buy it from somewhere there instead of China!

    You may want to shop from this list, do some research, find a reseller you like.

    http://gateway-3ds.com/resellers.html

    I can't really choose one (the only EU reseller I know is Shop01Media - former sponsor) as I'm US based, and my work was with the Chinese.

    If you buy 3 games you come over €60. Order it at r4i-3ds.com.
