    Breaking news: here comes the 3DS link! We have just been informed that a new 3DS flashcart is making the rounds. It appears to be a simple clone of the Gateway 3DS flashcart.

    Update: another clone, the R4i 3DS Gold Deluxe Edition - no, that isn't a joke, it's the actual name of the product. It seems to share the same feature list as the 3DSlink, including the "Ramble pak". Yay!

    :arrow: Check out the 3DSLink ShopTemp page, prices will appear here when stores sell the product

    I thought the mods banned this thing from the site since the first thread about it got deleted.

    3ds-flashcard.com had the 3ds link listed for $60, but you couldn't purchase it.

    Was looking around, there was no link for dealers. Nor was there a link for allowing us to contact them.

    Produced in China means it can be copy by Chinese factory. It's a matter of time. and soon. Actually there is another team,which included 3 guy, are trying to hack the GW since 2 weeks ago. Just wait the GW 2.0 release.

    Those are some damned ugly stickers lol. :lol:

    I approve of the Engrish though. Missed that a lot with Gateway. :P

    They're big CCR fans, of course.

    Just like all clones, they pretend to understand the product, when really they prob dont know shit, apart from knowing the factory they used to clone the device, they must be awesome
    cue the broken english comments, direct translation basically from english to broken english from gateway site

    "Currently it is not compatible with firmware above 4.5 but we are working on making it compatible as quickly as possible with 5.x and 6.x firmwares.
    It is a very hard work, we do not sure about when the 3dslink will work on the consoles(5.x and 6.x)
    If some people said that the 6.x 3d card will coming soon , it must be a cheater.
    But we believe that We will be the first one who can hack successfully"

    In other words, if gateway hacks it we will copy, trueblue all over again lol... although these guys cant spell blue

    These guys are obviously copying gateway's product but it's to early to say they don't know shiet. Can you go out reverse engineer the gateway and secure deals to start the manufacturing process? Nuh uh. It takes brains and determination to do that. Also this is a good thing for us cause competition in the 3ds flashcart market= lower prices for us.

    Let's be realistic. 3DSLink hasn't demonstrated enough English language skill to have posted the previous comment. If they could communicate that well, they'd start by fixing their website.

    I don't see the price going down that much, if at all. I'm guessing this new clone, assuming it ever surfaces, will have Gateway 1.0's functionality. Anyone who pays any attention would know that Gateway has been doing wonders with their flashcart, and aside from the whole "5.x will work" near the beginning of this whole episode, they have yet to disappoint. Now, if an actually competent company got together and made a flashcart with 5.x+ compatibility to suit users like the dude above me, then yes, I imagine a price drop will be in effect (assuming Gateway can't reverse engineer it).
