    I just ordered a Gateway from http://3ds-games-cards.com/ and it should arrive in 1 to 2 weeks since
    im from the Philippines.. and since Gateway is releasing firmware 2.0 that will support multiple rom
    my only problem is what MicroSD should i buy.. 3 4GB or 1 32GB... because buying those here in the
    Philippines is almost the same price.. I can store many games in the 32GB in case the 2.0 will be released..
    but i can only store 1 Game each for the 4GB but im sure i can use it in case 2.0 will not
    be released... I should choose wisely because i am short on money because of gateway...

    2x 4gb and one 8gb for larger games.

    There are no signs that 2.0 will come anytime soon.

    Yes, they are saying "almost ready" but meh. They have been repeating the same thing for ages.

    4GB Cost here $5.50 and 8GB Cost $6.. i think i'd rather buy 3 8GB... but if u buy 3 8GB..
    including the 1 that i will use for Gateway's R4.. i can only play 2 3DS Roms a game...
    I just wish that before my Gateway comes the 2.0 will be released

    Then buy more SD cards. Or get 2gb ones.

    At this point of time, do not expect 2.0 to come anytime soon.

    Looks like you're better off buying 8gb mSD cards.

    You seem to be a bit impatient.

    A 4GB MicroSD should be enough to store any ROM up to date if you trim them. If you don't have one already, buy a 32GB one.

    If you don't care about your economy, buy a bunch of 8GB MicroSD, no need for asking for advice in this case.

    I got 2 8gb but I wish I had just gotten 32gb , I don't switch them out very often and 2.0 will be out before we know it.

    i dont have enough budget to buy 2 16GB... Gateway is really expensive but worth it..
    I just wish my unit is a 3DS XL to enjoy it fully.. i only have a 3DS v4.5.0-10... and finding a
    2nd 3DS XL with version 4.5 below is hard.. and buying a new unit is not worth it..

    Get 8GB ones. With ROM Trimmer even the largest 3DS ROM theoretically possible should have no problem fitting on it. With ROM Trimmer you should also be able to load at least 4-5 existing ROMs onto it once multirom comes out.

    It's not even confirmed that 2.0 supports multirom.

    yup were not 100% sure but were talking about gateway here, They do what they say.
    First playing 3DS Rom on 3DS then Region Free games and now multirom.. i think i'll trust them, the question is when will they release it..

    I thrust them, too. But I'm not very confident that 2.0 supports multirom.
    But I'm not very confident that they will release 6.X support (since they aren't it themselves).
