    "GATEWAY 3DS UPDATE

    11/07/2013
    Official opening of pre-orders !
    Gateway is please to announce start of manufacturing and the opening of pre-orders. We expect to roll out the first units to resellers within the next fortnight.
    Please pay special attention to the following critical information regarding our current software development phase.

    1) Yes, we are exploit based (Yay !?) and therefore very dependent on console firmware version: Our current plan is to release for firmware version 4.5 while continuing work on a solution for 6.x + after release. (please see note below)
    2) Gateway will be shipped with 2 cards, the red Gateway shown in our video, which will handle 3ds backups, and a blue ds cart which will be used to prepare the console. ( more demo videos showing save game compatibility as well as setup procedures to follow soon )
    3) Your console can be safely updated to 4.5 by using an original title released after March 2013 till current. Please double check the update message (version) before proceeding !

    Note:
    We currently have a very convenient and user friendly way to enter into our Gateway mode, while this entry point has been tested up to 6.0 we expect it to be shut off shortly after we release. We can not stress enough the importance of staying away from any further updates! ( 6.0 compatibility is only valid for our initial entry point, as stated in point (1) we currently only support firmware version 4.5 )"



    I'm confused. Up until now, it was never mentioned that the Gateway 3DS only worked on 4.5 and below. It sounds like there will be two cards in the box; one card will put the 3DS in some sort of "Gateway mode", and that card works up to 6.0. But the actual Gateway card (that I assume will contain the ROM) won't work above 4.5. At least that's what I understand from this. Or am I reading this wrong?

    Who says he was trying to make it onto the front page. The old gateway topic is closed and he posted about a topic that those who don't read the front page didn't know about. Its a discussion thread. No need to link a thread from another section of the forum in an attempt to undermined the OP.

    i do believe he was making the point that the news was already posted.

    it seems that you are being rather anal in this scenario.

    I posted this in Hacking & Homebrew after noticing that no one started a thread there about yesterday's news, and ALL the threads about GW3DS were locked. I wasn't aware that it was on the front page (I only bookmarked the Hacking & Homebrew page). Like I said, my bad :)
