I had recently mentioned purchasing a N3DSXL which has fw 9.0. I've been waiting to see what would happen between Gateway and Sky3DS but it has been quite for awhile now. I hadn't any intention of having the ability to use private headers for my games. And seeing the latest action from Nintendo, in regards to bans, has left me wondering if it's worth the money ($100+) to get a Gateway+Cubic Ninja (or Sky3DS, for that matter) to have no online capability or likely face an online ban (temporary and reoccurring or permanent). Perhaps money would be better spent with purchases that are issue free. So the question is more of your personal opinion. Do you think it has become an untimely time to invest in the flashcard market with the sole intent of using public headers in games?
