    My guess is it is to let everyone know the release is just around the corner and they don't want to rush the release. ;)

    Take a look at this thread.

    ordered it on best buy and yes it was red. I actually were late pre-ordering so I actually got mine on the 17th. Since no one else had it. Also I can't take it back. It's opened.

    I'm fucked aren't I

    It's QW4028 ----

    I sent an email 2 days ago, they answered to me today, no it's not a fake, but of course you'll believe what you want. ^^

    I'd recommend people stop bugging GW.

    Yeah, maybe they're not very good at keeping us updated. However, we have seen GW on N3DS. It will be possible, eventually.

    At the end of the day, they're probably just doing one of the following:
    1. Sitting on it to prevent it from being patched so soon.
    2. Still updating it, making sure that it is not going to brick the console.
    If you don't want to wait?
    You might be better off with Sky3DS. (If you don't want to play region-locked games, or can use the RegionThree exploit :P)
    I'm considering the Sky3DS for a few reasons:
    1. To avoid the GateWay 3DS bricker. (Since files can get corrupted. Bricking because of custom launcher isn't a very nice thing to do...)
    2. To avoid the lack of community interaction from the GW team.
    3. I have an original 3DS that can use the RegionThree exploit to run region-locked games.
    4. So I can actually use my New3DS since it is now collecting dust. (I have games, but they only work on my original 3DS. It'd be nice to back them up and stick them on the Sky3DS.)
    Again, take these points into consideration if you're not happy with the way GW operates. :P

    did gateway ever confirm 9.4 ever having compatibility for the n3DS in the future?

    they said that EMUNAND 9.5 will never work on the N3DS but they never said SYSNAND

    Is this a legitimate concern? I just ordered my AU N3DSXL two days ago and gonna be ordering either of the flash carts (depending on the outcome) and I still gotta do a whole lot of research since am a "newbie/noob" but this concerns me.

    How would you recover from this? I mean if it were to ever get bricked? Is there a recovery mode of some sorts? or a hardware nand flash is required?

    Just curious so I can be very careful about it :)

    We also want to inform our users about some news regarding emunand support for the New 3DS:
    We will not be able to support emunand 9.5 or higher for a while on the New 3DS. This is only an issue for the New 3DS, the old 3DS and 2DS will never have this issue. This is not a definitive barrier, but we feel it necessary to inform our users that while we are still working on releasing our New 3ds support, we will not be able to provide support yet for 9.5 emunand or higher for New 3DS on release.

    so does that mean SYSNAND 9.4 could have a chance in the future? I mean they could just reverse engineer sky3DS for its 9.4 compatibility (which is probably what they are doing)

    sky3ds is completely different than gateway, they don't use exploits so there is nothing to reverse engineer.

    9.4/9.5 likely have entrypoint exploits, but unless they also have replacements for the later stage exploits patched after 9.2 then they will stay limited to 9.2 and below.

    You're confusing emuNAND with sysnand ;)

    Every RED N3DS ive seen up here in Manitoba has had 9.4 right out of the box. There's alot of pissed off people.

    Edit: admittedly, the sample size has only been 6.

    If "Soon" is this long then I have no idea what waiting "a while" would be like.
