    Are they implying that "3DS link" and the "R4 starter 3DS whateveristhisthingreallycalled" are the same flashcard (the same hardware)?

    It's probably being sent out to everyone as I didn't ask them anything recently.

    I bet they are working on an anti clone measure before the release of GW 2.0.

    Good because the clones suck balls anyways. People who are gullible enough to pay for a shoddy clone (which will have limited if any support) reap what they sow.

    I'm hoping one of those features that will "surprise and please" us all will be support for more than one game on a MicroSD card. Until that happens, it's too much of a pain in the ass to even thing about GW.

    I think they already mentioned multirom in the previous news update (the faq). So, if it's a surprise as they say, it should be something else. Probably cheats and screenshots to show-up smea. :P

    Finally some great news! I really hope those cheap clones never see the light of day.

    Oh that should be easy, just write intentionally bad reviews on the clones' websites. Or just not buying them; I hope that they never see the light of day, clones are a detriment as far as I'm concerned.

    There itself.
    So the Gateway uses pro Chinese design and components? Gateway is China-manufactured btw...

    Playing devils advocate here, but there is always the possibility the clone teams can update their own fork of GWs updates and improve quality over time.

    This is R4iGold team we're talking about here, not a no-name team.

    I really do not see how writing a bunch of negative reviews on these clones will have that much of an effect. So long as a cheaper option exists, there's always going to be somebody that falls prey to it and spends their money on it. :/

    As much as I would like those features, I doubt they will work on a screenshot feature since it has nothing to do with the purpose of a flashcard. :(

    Theres a difference between "Made in China" and "Cloned in China". When something is cloned, its made with the cheapest components that fit the bill in order to maximize profit and lower manufacturing costs, hence the poor support and reliability.

    I'd love to see a screenshot feature. I'll have to bring it up with the team next time I talk to them.

    Isn't the same thing is said by Nintendo yet we still use Gateway on the 3DS. Blah blah unauthorised device, brick etc....

    If Gateway said this thing after actually researching the clones in details, it would have been more believable. I think they are shitting bricks at the moment. I don't blame them, I would too.
