    hmmm difficult to choose right now.
    I have both cards. Right now I will choose sky3ds as I can only use that card for n3ds.
    Obviosuly I will choose gateway once they release support for n3ds.

    "Some Shitty Ass Clone" is obviously the correct answer ;P

    At the moment sky3ds and GW both have advantages and disadvantages over the other, so it's kinda hard to choose.

    Basically this. I have had a gateway for a very long time now and loved it every step of the way, but if my Majora's Mask N3DS isn't supported by Gateway tough luck, I'm going to get a SKY. While I do have faith that they will follow through with their promises I don't expect them to magically support >9.2. If Sky does not support New 3DS exclusive games I'll wait until some flashcart does and get that instead, otherwise there would be no point.

    Current Benefits of Sky:
    Sky works on all current Sysnand Versions and N3DS
    Partial Region Free Support thanks to Smealum (?)
    After the initial blunder, not limited to just 10 games ever
    Easier for people with children than Gateway (More straightforward use)

    Downsides of Sky:
    No homebrew (AFAIK)
    No Emunand
    No CIAs
    May get blocked out in an update
    *Not Officially on my list* Takes ages to switch ROMs when you have a bunch

    Current Benefits of Gateway:
    Support all the way to 9.2
    Downgrading sysnand (Can even be used without owning a Gateway)
    Restoring NAND
    Emunand
    Homebrew
    CIAs
    Active development with more features promised in the future
    *Not Officially on my list* Has opened up the way for CFW and more exploits in the future, their new launch method has already expanded the scene in promising ways

    Current Downsides of Gateway:
    The updates aren't magically instant, and not all promised features are currently supported, although this could change at any point
    - Cheats (Pls no)
    - New 3DS Support (Not public)
    - GBA support
    Does not work above 9.2
    Possibly still contains Brick Code
    Really bad support and communication with customers

    Only Reason MT-Card is allowed to Exist:
    Their Emunand isn't locked to owners of the card itself
