As above try the GW and check for yourself. If it works then you could deem it legit.

It's probably something along the lines of being second hand if it was provided like that, assuming it's legit.

Their reseller list page was down when I went to order, I went off site reviews.

Other users on this forum seem to have had good experiences with them. While your packaging issue is unknown, it's a fairly good bet that what you've received is legit.

Maybe you could contact bestr4i3ds to ask why you didn't receive the retail packaging.

That's not possible at the moment.


How is it not possible. You ordered the card without having a system to test on? Thats rediculous, how else are you going to test to confirm if the product is working if you have no system to test it on? How will support respond to your issue 1 to 2 months down the line?

There is no reason to buy now, it doesn't look there there was any shortage during the holidays on majority of the official resellers as most of the customers who bought the GW had also bought a AUS or JAP N3DSLL. Which means no sign of shortage since its already a month after the holidays.

Just like you said, most who bought N3DS already bought GW.
Also, it's cheaper to just order it now with normal register airmail than Royal airmail at released day

P.S: Though it would be better to order it from an official seller.
