Dozens? Hundreds? Thousands? I am pretty sure that almost everyone who has a Gateway 3DS card and wound up with a brick basically HAS to be a participant of some online forum devoted to modding and hacking. That said, most of the people who got bricked are likely to post something about it somewhere. Modders tend to look out for each other. So, what are we really talking, here? It's difficult to get an accurate estimate on the number of users affected by searching through dozens of topics on GBATemp, as I have been doing. I feel like I am playing with a ticking time bomb, every time I turn off my 3DS. How many reliably confirmed bricks have been reported so far?
