    Wow! 8GB microsd cards are coming out, this thing will have a massive amount of storage!

    That is some features list too!

    The ability to switch from NAND to microsd on the fly will definatly help to improve compatiblity, wow, and open source!

    Looks great. If it comes out at a nice price point ($40-$80, US, Maybe more..), I may get one. Might be my first slot 1. Still waiting for a review though.

    I really hope this is better than the first Acekard which was awful.

    I was just thinking the other day that it would be cool if someone did a flashcart that used NAND and Micro-SD.

    Hm.. World's first automatic save detection.. cool

    So this is the "Ak2" right?

    From the description, looks like it has a DS-X like, with the USB thing.

    EDIT: Here's an image from yyjoy. It looks very busy and hardcore >_>

    the sticker is on the back of the cart? Anyways, looks very nice. [​IMG] If price is not over $50 I might pick one up, anything over that and I'd have to pass and just keep using my R4. [​IMG]

    considering it embeds 8 gigabytes of flash memory, I'd tend to think the price will be much higher than $50 [​IMG]

    It says gigabytes but I think it will probably have gigaBITS. And if it is, in fact, BYTES then I would like to hope it comes in a smaller size. I REALLY don't need 8GB AND expandable microSD memory.

    Agreed. Chances are it's 1GB. I don't even think 8GB NAND chips are that affordable/mass produced/efficient/etc (don't even know if they exist)

    If you count slot 2, the official patcher for Supercard auto detects save types for commercial DS games.

    But that requires ROM patching

    no i think G6 Real has the only true auto save detection before this (that has worked 100% as far as i know)

    R4 gets patches for the occasional game that isn't detected properly i believe.

    Look into it huh..

    If I was a manufacturer, I wouldn't dare enter the market without at least keeping up with the R4, since they dominate the market.
