    Pros/cons to each, differences between the two, similarities, I looking for a breakdown of the two.

    Or if there's already thread on that I'd be glad to be pointed in the right direction.

    With Gateway you can play any games 3ds and install .cia with deffirents firmware SDK using Emunand,
    Pasta,you can just install .cia play online without header... however you can't play all games.

    Also in pasta you can use eshop spoof. (Usefull for n3ds, since emuNAND support is only up to 9.5 atm)

    Pros for pasta :
    - eshop spoof (it's only a pro on n3ds)
    - dsiware games support
    - gba games support (but only ambassador games on n3ds, at least for now)

    Don't forget that Gateway has multiregion fix for games and mset/spider as launch methods vs CN only on pasta.
    In short - gateway is much better.

    I heard they are working on a spider version, but as of now you're right.

    128GiB of additional storage through the cartridge slot. No "custom firmware" on the 3DS will ever be able to deliver that advantage.

    For the price of the Gateway card alone, you could buy at least 2 extra SD cards and get all that extra space. GW does have the advantage of hotswapping without powering down, but otherwise the space argument isn't too strong imo :P

    Yes, because if I purchase a flash cartridge for storing multiple games, I'm totally into constantly swapping out between multiple SD cards instead of a single one that can store all of my games at once, and all for the benefit of a hacked-up FAT32 solution instead of a native exFAT file system...

    Once pasta has mset on 9.x it will be the ultimate add on for gateway uses. You will get to have all features and no card swap
