This probably means nothing to most people, but I thought I'd put it out there anyway. Positives: Games are so easy to load - just stick the exFAT-formatted SD Card in the computer, and drag and drop them from Finder (OSX), or windows explorer (Windows). Whole bunch of nice features - so easy to rip your own games, backup NAND, play copies online, etc. Supports 64GB SDXC cards, and I hear 128GB work too. Fast, painless and really easy to install Frequent updates by team Gateway...so far they've worked their asses off. Support for the gateway is excellent. Region free - so, so nice! Multiple roms on SD card - choosing which game to play is really easy. Plays every game...EVERY game. Online Roms! Homebrew! Negatives: Freaked out at first cause my 3DS didn't recognise my Blue Card (gateway installer card). After switched microSDs a few times, I figured out that I had to deleted every folder on my 3DS SD, apart from the 3DS folder and the launcher file I copied over. If I go to settings, profile, etc and put it in gateway mode, everything is cool, I can load my games. But if I go into settings from gateway mode...I have no way of exiting back into gateway mode. If I just exit, I'm in classic. If I go to profile, etc, the system crashes. Maybe I'm a just being a noob though. No way to arrange my games. I'd love a new screen to boot up, with various ways of displaying my titles (tiles, scroll through large covers, list, etc). Folders would also be epic. The red gateway didn't slot into the 3DS easily...it was then that I noticed the sticker was peeling a bit...have to be careful with that. Thoughts: I'm a little scared about what will happen to my digital copy of Monster Hunter once I go EMUNand (as soon as the 7.2 issue is fixed). I don't know if Streetpass works with roms...if a ROM needs to be loaded or what. I don't know if there are save-game issues or how they can arise. Apparently you can load e-Shop games up...I don't know how, and I don't know if/how they can be ripped. Brick code?!? They seem really competent, my guess is we'll never hear about it again...but every time I see that diagnostic button, I get a little shiver. A really detailed FAQ and better instructions would go down well (even the Maxconsole instructions aren't 100% complete)...hell, I'll do it for them (wouldn't take long), if they're willing to answer a few questions to make it complete. Conclusion: Definitely, definitely worth getting. It works well, does everything you want it to. There are no complaints so far...just small, unimportant niggles. More requests and suggestions for the developers of Gateway, rather than criticism. That is to say, I'd like some extra stuff, but I don't NEED anything more. If they quit now and stopped adding features, then I'd still be really happy with my purchase. That said, they seem to be hard at work to continue to improve the experience.
