    Any new info on it? Usually cards are released not long after they're announced so how far off would it be? It's the cart I'm hanging out for and I want a DS Lite now damnit. [​IMG]

    You´re asking for a flashcard that doesn´t exist, to use on a DS Lite that you don´t own yet?

    Also, you´ll break some hearts [​IMG] The title of the thread should be:
    1GB G6 Lite?

    I missed that "should be released in about a month" bit, so hopefully only a couple weeks off? Guess I can wait.

    $80-ish for a 1GB G6 ... I might actually buy that. You know 2 weeks after its out there'll be an officialt announcement about all the new Slot1's though.

    True, but I'm not really bothered by them since I need GBA support on the card I get. This news of the 1GB G6 came just in time, I was so close to buying a SC, nice I won't have to fuss over getting the right micro sd card for this, or worry about battery life.

    sorry to do the mini-quote-chain, but if this is what youre worried about with the SC, you worry too much. Choice of microSD with the SCLite isn't an issue like it used to be with other versions. I've got a black SCLite with the Sandisk 1GB UltraII, and then got a standard Sandisk 1GB ... and I haven't seen a difference yet. Neither are PERFECT ... the Castlevania video still has a few seconds in it where the audio is mildly distorted, for instance, but the video framerate's fine and that goes for both the UltraII and the regular.

    As for battery life ... I've never bothered to test because my DSLite usually goes on the charger every night anyway. I've never managed to play enough in one day to kick it over to red, and that includes 3 of us in the house who each have their own Animal Crossing game going. I have seen it go red on day 2 if not charged overnight though.

    But like I said above, I might get the G6 too anyway. Once the NDS's lifecycle is coming to a close and the next great thing comes along, you'll be glad for having NDS devkit overkill in your dresser drawer. There's a thread in another section where someone's having trouble finding a true GBA flashcart.
