    Could be true since those markets are rather small. Us is the big market where they will not lose shares to flash card makers. Thats for sure.

    How would that work technically?
    Games are linked statically against the rendering libraries which decide things like camera setup and stereo separation.

    It's exactly because of that negligence i'm considering this to be an option :).
    If they already started manufacturing even only a few it would be to much of a hassle to get them out of the packaging and update them.
    Lets say there is a chance the first batch will be the current firmware.

    That's what I implied. My question to them was if they already have something else to work with in the future or not

    well technically, they could patch it, if gateway's exploit is based off of sky 3ds, perfected. same exploit meaning patchable at this current time in place.

    If they don't have the new patches, they won't know the answer. It's all up to Nintendo from here.
    The N3DS has a new camera that can track your head and adjust the SCREEN (Not the games themselves) so it shows the 3D effect acordingly,
    If it was N3DS games only, they wouldn't show Mario 3D Land as an example in the Nintendo Direct.
    I highly doubt it is based off of Sky3DS, since Sky3DS seems to be a 1:1 copy of a retail card, something that the Gateway cannot achieve without updating the FPGA, and to update the FPGA you need kernel access, unless gateway can achieve unattended updates.
     
  9. The 3d really works well when moving your head around.

    Let's look at the table here:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...JVlFZVnN6RUpWbERIcHdYRFR6MUE&usp=docslist_api
    4.5 came out on December 4, 2012, and in a couple batches of consoles, it started being preinstalled. Only three serials in 2013 have 4.4. So, your hypothesis, assuming the GW firmware is released in two weeks and it gets patched by January, is not probable
    EDIT: I also noticed now, that 4.5 consoles also from 2012 exist. So yeah, definitely not probable at all.

    Ah, alright, didn't know about that. Sounds pretty cool.
     
  12. That haven't given a date yet for Western release so they could hold of back longer, especially as the old 3ds is still selling so well.

    What are the chances Nintendo completely skips a 9.0 - 9.2 update via a game? Pretty big I guess.... :(

    Other than that, there's also an ambient light sensor similar to smartphones which regulates the brightness. Both new features can be turned on and off.

    Because if there is no game containing the 9.0-9.2 update, then soon people won't be able to update to 9.0-9.2 at all when Nintendo rolls out the new firmware.

    considering they know about the exploit, they would do EVERYTHING in their power to skip that update in games.

    Thats not really something that Nintendo has in hand.
    It'll all depend on how many developers are finalizing games *right now*.

    I mean, any title scheduled to release in december/january will in all likelyhood have a 9.x FW.
    And the longer 9.2 remains the "latest FW", the bigger that window.
    So your question there would be -> What are the next 3DS (or N3DS) titles scheduled to release for the upcoming 2 months.
