    Hello fellow gbatemp members I am thinking of buying a gateway card, and im located in Sweden however according to their homepage.

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

    The only reseller in sweden is shop01media.com and they seem to be out of stock everytime I check it seems. Since I have found the card on other swedish sites like digitalboxen and 24.se

    And I was just wondering if there are any other fellow swedes in here that has bought from other sites and can confirm if the card was a fake or not. Since I read on their homepage.

    "* Some places are selling Gateway 3DS clones, pretending they are genuine Gateway 3DS cards. Fake cards often come as clone-cards with a (fake) gateway sticker slapped on."

    The thing about this clone scare: a clone would have to be (from software) an indistinguishable 1:1 copy in order to work using the official GW software (encrypted/authenticated FPGA communication). In other words: If it works with the launcher.dat from GW's own website, it's a genuine GW.

    In my own (unprovable) opinion that "Oh noes clones!" was just a red herring in regards to genuine bricks.

    And while I can't give you any advice on a trustworthy Swedish retailer: as long as you pick one where you can return defective items (and a GW not working with the original software qualifies as defective) you'll be fine.

    Shop01media has a polite support. You can ask them personally when they will be back in stock.
    But why don't you go with the MT-Card? It's in stock there.

    Well I read a review of the MT-Card on ds_scene and this is some of it

    The MT-Card is not that good of an alternative to the Gateway 3DS. It has poor 3DS ROM compatibility and the only real pro is the MultiROM support.

    Pro's:
    • MultiROM support
    • Bundled with NDS flashcard
    • Bypasses the regionlock
    • Skips update sections of games
    Cons:
    • Poor 3DS ROM compatibility
    • Non springloaded microSD slot
    • Only useable on 3DS firmware 4.1.x - 4.5.x
    • Limited online play
    • Profile settings exploit must be used again when you turn the 3DS off

    Was it written for MT 1.1? You can see in my signature that I own one, too and here are my comments:

    I did also order my GW card from shop01media.com. And there were no problems at all, fast shipping, received my card the day after I ordered it.

    Bought mine from Digitalboxen in very late December.

    What does differ it from others is that both cartridges had stickers on them to the right, saying:

    Z G D

    年 (year) 月(month) 日(day)

    The fields to those are unfilled however.

    Anyone elses cards that came with these stickers, or am I currently possessing clones?
