    I love the M3 devices and currently own the smaller standard SD side loading card. If they ever came out with a version that used Micro SD (transflash) cards that fitted flush in the DS Lite cart socket then I would immediately go and buy one.

    Has anyone heard any murmers about such a device? I kind of expected this to have appeared by now.

    From what I've heard from others on these forums a smaller version is being working on, and apparently most of it has been sorted out, though as for when it will be out is anyones guess. =\

    Right now you can only get 1G but soon (between now and the end of the year) 2G will be out.

    I emailed the M3 team several days ago, and here is what Danny replied:


    I think this isn't very helpful, we still have no precise date of annoucement or release, it could just be released in august or even september... [​IMG]
    Hope I'm wrong, because I really think the M3 much more consistent UI than G6, plus the "real skin" feature (not just a background wallpaper for the GBA loader like G6) and the extendable capacity make it a winner over the G6, thus I would be really pissed off if they don't released it fast or if it sticks out like the EZ Flash IV.

    Besides, I have an M3 MiniSD with a 2GB Sandisk Ultra II, and no slowdowns EVER (I play DS and still play GBA games too), nor a single problem since I got it in May, and that's why the G6 isn't the best card out there in my opinion... [​IMG]

    Yay, this precisely is what I was pointing at. I hope the lack of info on the M3 Lite isn't just a marketing move from the G6/M3 Team (if they're thinking the M3 could "eat" some market share over the G6).

    Nonetheless they rather hurry up, because the Ewin2 and the not-even-to-mention Supercard Lite seem to be in the starting blocks...
    Oh guys, it's a real pain in tha a** to see all those shops taking pre-orders of the G6 and not to even have a single official info on the M3... :'(

    If they're working on it, they're working on it, let them be.

    The 24/7 nature of the internet coupled with instant information at your fingertips makes every day seem like a week when you're waiting for something like this - but if he says they're working on it, and that it will be out within a month, let him be. The M3/G6 teams work very hard both on their hardware and their software, and they haven't let anyone down yet.

    Hell yes.

    I hope they release a white one too. I once saw a poll somewhere and white was the #1 color out there.

    I think they will M3 will lose quite a bit market share if they wait too long before releasing the M3 Lite. Even NeoFlash has a MicroSD solution that's almost ready.

    What's the deal with the M3 guys charging us an extra 20 bucks for the english menus? The hardware is identical, however we're forced to pay extra for english menus? I don't see any other flash card mfg charging extra for english menus.

    I came to this thread late. What's this about extra $20?

    Fuck that shit. Just because these are specialty items doesn't mean we're going to bow down our heads and pay any price for these items.
