    I'm a bit of a noob and really waited for the gateway for an upgrade for the latest firmware and now that it has happened(well not yet... the firmware isn't released ;(..) So I just wanted to buy my gateway before the exploit.
    I just purchased it in http://www.r4igold3ds.net/ which is one of the resellers that is on the gateway site. But still want to be safe if this site is legit. Has anyone ordered from here? If you did was the product ok?

    I don't know about that specific site, but if you're looking for a Japanese site I always use this site and have never had a problem http://ndswayz.com/

    There's only 1 version of Gateway. If you see differences on some website, it's cause they changed the packaging/box from cardboard to plastic, but the card is the same in both.

    I actually didn't get any packaging at all when ordering Gateway from ndswayz, just the two cards. Both are legit cards though.

    The DSTwo I ordered came boxed, though.

    They were in loads of bubble wrap, so probably better packaged than if they were in the real packaging.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    the store applies the stickers, sometimes you even get the stickers and you must put them by yourself...
