    They are also telling me it will be cheaper than any 9.x flashcart on the market

    What's the QQ3DS? Does it offer anything that the three current major players don't, or is just another sky3DS clone?

    tl;dr Why should I care?

    I'd be surprised if any flashcart cost much more than £3 to make.

    It's a Sky3ds clone that will apparently be cheaper than the Sky3ds

    Cool, well it's of no interest to me then. But if it's reasonably priced I can see it becoming incredibly popular.

    if it's like 20 or 30 i'd get it.

    comes with a r4i bunch of letters for ds playing on 9.4 too, which doesn't interest me.

    lmao "please wait for more patience" ah, so that's how it works.

    I want to make a fake road sign that says "Please wait for more patience" just to confuse people.

    I doubt it.

    Sky3DS barely uses any code at all.

    Actually, FPGAs, etc., custom PCB manufacturing in small batches, extra components, plastic shell molding, etc. add up quick. The FPGA used by the GW is around 25USD each.

    You should also keep in mind that the Gateway team doesn't have the spending power to mass-produce like Nintendo, so they have to obtain components and manufacturing contracts at a much higher cost than Nintendo would.

    Source? People always like to do maths with random numbers.
    Looking at the price of old NDS card at retail (15$) I highly doubt the physical cost of the card itself being so high during production. His estimation (5$) seems a lot more accurate to me.

    It also make sense that its retail cost is slightly more since it offer what it seems an R4+Sky3ds.
    Still look like a joke anyway with that name.
