    Lol. Yeah.

    All depends on what your most wanted feature is at this very moment. Multi-ROM with severely reduced compatibility, or very high compatibility without multi-ROM for the time being.

    Are they finally selling/shipping MT cards anywhere?

    Really? I thought MT was compatible with most 3Ds games. It may be also for the time being.

    It's not compatible with SDK5+ games which are pretty much all recent games for the past 2 months. They seem to have a bigger problem than Gateway with their promised updates releasing.

    Not much more limited than GW 1.2 launcher, which is what you need to use unless you want to risk bricking your console.

    It's Gateway's safest version, but better. I'd hit that.

    Yeah, it's basically like GW 1.2.

    Anything needing SDK5, as well as Animal Crossing, won't work. Yet, at least.

    And I actually have no idea if they're selling them anywhere, I got mine for free as a review sample :P
    I think the retailer that gave me my card has them in stock though. (China, be prepared for slow shipping)

    Not bad.. still needs some development time to get it perfect.

    Have you tried a gw card in it yet using the MT exploit?

    So, what's the build quality like? Does it feel cheap and wobbly, or more sturdy?
    Also, did you crack it open and look at the insides yet?

    Nice review this card seems like the gateways's rival but I still think gateway is best overall

    2.0b1 is equally as safe as 1.2. And it runs everything except Pokemon X and Animal Crossing, which I own retail copies of. So 100% compatibility for me. :P

    More like the past 10 months considering that 5.0 came out in March 2013, and a lot of games since then use it.
    Same here, I can't get enough of Pokemon x and Y, I even bought a second legitimate 3DS XL just to play online! I even have Animal Crossing: New Leaf, although it's still sitting on my shelf, unopened for the past month and a half. And, no, I don't have a problem. :rolleyes:

    Interested to see if any bricks occur with this card. Would be nice if they used their own firmware instead of gateways to.

    Their firmware is built on top of Gateway's 1.2 firmware (brick code free). Although they did appear to code their own multi-ROM feature.

    that card is so cheap looking with the blister pack and the stickers not even put on the card but each to their own i guess. maybe the next revision will come in parts and you will have to assemble the card yourself.................................sudeki300

    The plastic is lighter than the GW ones.

    The MT is avaible since the beginning of this month (it arrived the stores short after the reviewers received their cards).

    Why does everyone have to open a new threat for their MT Review?

    why is your 3ds xl so shiny? the inside has some sort of gloss protector but the blue parts are like a mirror, how'd you do that?

    Well, at least MT-Card did what they set out to do: be the first 3DS card to support multi-ROM. It's probably the card I'd choose if I was a dirty, stinking, low-life pirate. Which I sorta am, but I have an updated 3DS because I care more about the latest features than I do about being able to play games for free.

    We get it, you like Gateway and none of the competition. Also, we can see your member name to the left of your post beneath your profile picture; there's no need to add your signature to every single post.
