    Hello,
    I would like to buy me a flash card, I am a 3DS old version (3.0.0)
    Is that a big difference between the 2 cards?
    I guess it is not possible to play online for the both card.

    I saw that the R4i 3DS Gold Deluxe is cheaper but there is some problems, is that right?

    MT-Card is a little be cheaper, it will be better for me to buy this card?
    Is also easy to install a game with the “FAT32 Drag and Drop” function

    Why is the Gateway so expensive?

    thanks

    I could anwser but I wont cause Im kind of sick of tons of new threads like this one. Take 5 minutes and read through the MT thread and then Gateway thread and you will figure it out

    Atm they are pretty much exactly same but I would say Gateway because they released ALL updates before any other competitors (except multirom which was MT-Card).

    Esmax666, just do what newersumm told you. Take a read on both specs and go for what your "heart" tells you :D, because as dagro told you, they are basically the same.
    Right now the only difference between them is that GW has eShop titles support (downloaded outside eShop), but it'll eventually come out for MT-Card.

    Cheers!

    Gateway is more expensive because it is the market leader in 3ds flash cards

    MT card is a little behind in features but i think it has potential

    If i was you i would look at some youtube videos and see which one you like the look of

    The biggest difference is the multirom implementation. Gateway supports exFAt and FAT32 white MT-card only supports FAT32. Gateway has a menu in the 3ds menu, while with the MT card you first select the game from the exploit and use the button to switch games (or relaunch the exploit.) Gateway also currently supports eshop roms.

    At this point they both are looking good in terms of capability and future updates. I'd personally get a Gateway because it's more "polished" if you ask me.

    I find that MT-CARD will have lots of potential due to built-in CPU (kinda like DSTWO) but the lack of game compatibility is unsettling.

    its not a cpu like the DSTwo, its just the fpga that they claim is a cpu (technically it is but its not of any use as far as homebrew emulators are concerned)

    Gateway only got compatibility for these two 5 days ago. MT may get it too, just give them a bit more time.

    Personal opinion!! I find the MT card much better, more hacks but less game compatibility etc. It was a bit cheaper at least for me. Im a hacker and i advantage from the built in CPU :)

    I don't get people starting a war over this xD
    Gateway is a great product. I have one, 100% satisfied. MT seems great too, although I don't have one to experiment with.
    Either way, Gateway = 100% game compatibility, neat gui on multirom. MT-card will almost certainly have 100% game compatibility in a few days and has its own multirom.
    People who can't decide which one to buy should just go to Youtube and see some videos of both cards. There's going to be one that is going to look nicer than the other. But that's really an individual choice in my opinion.
    2 great cards, 2 great choices.

    What are you talking about.........do you even know what a hack is, there is no CPU to take advantage of that was just BS sales pitch from MT....the mythical CPU hasn't done anything at all....so I don't see how it's giving you any "advantage"
