    Hello currently I have a n3ds xl and a nes 3ds xl and I was wondering I did order a gateway but I feel like there are no real benefits to keeping the nes 3ds with karl3ds and oska as well as gateway and installing cias to emunand. I could just keep my n3ds which I got mainly because getting a circle pad pro for me is difficult and I don't like the idea of using batteries and prefer the c stick for how close it is to the buttons. What would you do? Thanks for your opinion I want to return the o3ds if others think its worth it.

    Edit: so I haven't gotten a single response IRL since everyone I know comes to me about these things so I guess I will keep it...I can return it and get 170$ though which I want to do in a way, I don't feel like I need 2 systems but I can't replace the n3ds if something happens its trash.

    One shameless bump before its beyond the return policy. It would be nice to have another system everyone can beat on and play whatever

    I have a pikachu 3dsxl, a white new 3ds from Japan and a red new 3dsxl from America. I only have one gateway and I'm not planning to sell any of those.. Not for now at least..

    If you need the money then sell it, otherwise keep it.
    Provided you're careful and have common sense it'll be pretty hard to to ruin anything beyond repair.
    Just fyi, one battery lasts more than 500 hours of use (I forgot the exact amount) so it's not really a hassle to buy a CPP, but you're right in that having the c stick close to the buttons is handy.

    Personally, I have both consoles (SSB 3DSXL and MM N3DSXL) and would recommend keeping both devices. But not everyone has the money to dish out, so it's up to you

    well it would get me more games since i got it at gamestop and can get credit. im just very conflicted because before i was informed i thought cias could only be installed to a 4.5 base but now im learning my n3ds xl was a good choice as i could just abandon my old system once games take advantage of it more. thats why i created the poll most people seem to think alike.

    N3DS: More expensive, needs an additional game to run.
    3DS: The same, just doesn't need an additional game.

    I'd say the N3DS has the advantage, so if you're able to run Gateway on the N3DS, that's awesome.
    But it's all about what you're able to run Gateway on. If you have a 9.2 or below 3DS, then get Gateway for it. If you have a 9.2 or below N3DS, get Gateway for that. But now adays getting a 3DS on such firmware requires you to buy a whole 3DS just to get a gateway capable 3DS. If you don't want to do that, then just get a Sky3DS.
    It's all about your situation and what you have.

    The n3ds is on 9.0 and I have cubic ninja and obviously oot , the 3ds came on 7.0 but I upgraded it to 8.1 and am now using gateway. I suppose if something happens under the warranty I will just return it.
