    How long do you think it will take until more 3DS flashcarts start showing up?
    I'm curious about everyone's thoughts on this.

    Me, I give it a year, tops. If China hasn't cracked the gateway by then, I'll be surprised.

    I'll agree that a year is a good amount of time until we start seeing more carts. If we don't see more by that time, then I don't think it'll be too much longer than that before more pop up. Another thing to consider is how much more mature the Gateway will be in that time. I'm just excited to see how much better the Gateway will be in a year's time. Will we have NAND restore? Will we have downgrade capabilities? And what about older console emulation? It's a good time to be a 3DS owner, that's for sure!

    P.S. Please don't respond to this post with your ideas about the feasibility of any of my mentioned features, as I don't care if I'm wrong or right about it and won't respond. It's just what my thoughts were on the subject.

    Why don't we deter people from being involved in the community with disrespectful, belittling posts? Oh wait, migles already has that covered. :)

    Mingle isn't wrong. Your guess is as good as mine, and having a new thread about things like that every other days doesn't contribute anything to the community beside hiding post with actual relevance on the second page of the forum.

    A little healthy discussion never hurts. I haven't seen a topic exactly like this yet, and since there is not much going on right now that you can call "relevance" besides the occasional Gateway news post which are posted on the front page anyways, this is the next best thing.

    I just think it would be interesting to have this discussion, so later when more flashcarts are released we can go back and look at it and see how close we were :P

    Seriously... They should put up a sticky as a warning saying to search. If someone posts one of these questions, one week ban, no exceptions. People will learn. I don't know why they are allowing this forum to become spam central with these posts..

    exactly... you can have a thread like this for a good talk\good flame war\laugh etc

    but there is no real thing on it... you can't rely in any info in here... i just find pointless to create this type of threads, because people can talk about this forever, but you know... its one of those things it you can't say for sure...

    problem is, people will start to "guess" and other people believe and there will be a bunch of confused people...

    if your objective was conversation, good for you, but i hope people don't start to believing in this rumors\guessings... it is just a loss of time and actual threads with info get "hidded"...

    I'm just shocked the other Chinese manufacturers have not found a way to clone the Gateway yet

    I don't know why people like you who've been here for five months care so much.

    Very surprising indeed. I guess there is honor among thieves.

    There itself.
    I think that by a year, gateway clones will pop-up too. I mean, come on! R4, Acekard and the likes won't leave the market soley to Gateway. They will definitely strive to compete. And later, I think that there'll be other carts that might use a different method. Just guessing here! But if by a year, no clones show up, then softmod by those people showing off (and not sharing) might be more common place... if they share their exploit, that is...

    I suspect that it's probably not cost effective enough especially with the target limited to v4.5 owners. Then there's (ridiculously high) expectations for it such as being dirt cheap while having other conventional flashcart features and then some. I guess it's similar to the reason (I assume) why the DSTwo hasn't be cloned either (at least not that I am aware of)

    How about no? Banning for posting a thread is unnecessarily foolish, a simple warning on the front page would be enough.

    Firstly, I never said he was wrong. I said he was belittling people with his disrespectful posts. Secondly, your argument is what? That when people want to have a good discussion speculating about this technology, that they should be discouraged just because people like you like to have "relevant" threads on the first page of the forum? Tell me, what exactly is so difficult about looking through a few pages of threads? God forbid you spend an extra 10 seconds finding the thread you want.

    In any case, I think threads like these contribute to the sense of community because you can talk with like-minded members about stuff you're interested in. But clearly, your definition of "community" differs from mine.
