    The original one give me a classic feeling, like Tom & Jerry, and I HATE it.
    Omega look more awesome.

    I like the old one. The omega logo looks way too over the top, like some graffiti you'd find on the wall of an old factory.

    I prefer the old one. Looks more professional. New one looks like something a 12yo would make.

    I slightly like the old one more. It gives me a more calm, Nintendo-y feeling.

    As an ex-graffiti artist, I see nothing wrong with this.

    It's not a bad thing per se, it's just unsuitable as an official logo IMO. I prefer cleaner, simpler logos myself.

    Fair enough. I dislike Gateway's old logo because it looks like it has 0 creativity -- as if they just took a generic template and used it for their website and logo.

    I say the Omega logo is better. It doesn't look like a logo somebody just slapped together in MS Paint like the original logo did.

    I personally prefer the original Gateway logo. It looks cleaner and more in line with the Nintendo 3DS image.

    I particularly don't like the way they made the omega symbol resemble a skull. It connotes that the Gateway software is a virus or harmful in some way. This seems to be a bit inappropriate, particularly in light of the recent bricking fiasco.

    Personally I think it would have made more sense to make the omega symbol look like a doorway, portal, or keyhole of some sort to match the brand name.

    Maybe it's just me, but I would have also preferred the Menu Splash Screen to at least resemble the stickers on the Gateway Flash Cart itself.

    1. Old one looks really nasty and generic.

    2. New one looks really nasty and designed by a child who thinks he's a master dude hacker cool guy.

    Dislike both, but prefer the old one a thousand times as have a distaste for people who think they're something special.
