    A 3DS game costs ~US$40.
    Thus, for 10 games, it costs US$400; for 20 games, it costs US$800; and for 40 games, it costs US$1,600.

    Gateway costs ~US$62 and R4i costs ~US$45.

    For a difference of ~US$20, you can support the team who actually works on updates to support newer games, or you can support a team who copies the team who actually works on updates to support newer games.

    Your choice.

    Does ~US$20 really matter that much when you can "save" up to or over US$1,600 or so?

    We have/had enough comparison and boycott threads.
    We just closed one, having a new one won't be better.
