    I was on their site earlier this morning and did a quick refresh and now am getting this in different browsers. New news update loading to their site possibly?

    Edit: Now it seems to be going to a 500 error.

    I was checking out where they post their firmware updates and the FTP location is a different domain than gateway-3ds.com, so we may or may not be getting firmware and/or news. Or the site just went down and there will be nothing new at all, which would be dissapointing.

    i don't think that they will bring down website just to change some image and update a file into their server

    This isn't the Apple Store where being down means new products.

    Sometimes posting new content to a page can bring it down. Granted that hasn't happened in years since website refinement has made leaps and bounds. But it could be possible, just being optomistic haha.

    We should probably change GBAtemp's name to GatewayDownOrNot. The Gateway website goes down from time to time, stop overreacting and creating a thread. :rofl:

    The main problem is, every time it happens (which is fairly frequently, they probably just use some of the cheapest hosting known to man) someone creates a thread about it and people go "omg update confirmed soon".

    At least they have an RSS feed, so there's no need to even check the page. Just subscribe to the feed and you'll see when there's a new post.

    Getting hammer with emails that ask the same question, sky3ds trying to take down gateway website, haters who are trying to take down gateway website, updates or no updates, maintenance or no maintenance.

    Speculation mode.

    I was thinking it could be some competition hacking as well.
