    I'll decide once it comes out. I'm interested in it for the GBA, but I'm concerned with the battery life. I'm also concerned about it possibly damaging the DS cartridge slot because of the extra power drain. If people can confirm that it doesn't noticeably affect battery life(like, maybe 10 minutes less), then I'll get one. Otherwise, I'll hold off.

    What he said. I am very interested in the emulators but the battery consumption kinda scares me.

    I might, but currently I'm relying on my cousin when buying flashcards, as I don't know a place to buy them offline.

    ...And he's buying me an AK2i.

    It "threatens" to become the best flashcart ever. Though lacking ingame brightness it would support everything the Cyclo does + Dsi + GBA emulation not to mention the enormous potential of homebrew using the builtin CPU's power.

    I'll have to see DS/GBA/SNES compatibility before I get one of these but assuming it plays what my M3 Real, EZ Flash 3 in 1, and Super Mario RPG, I'm gonna pick up a DSTWO and a DSi.

    I really don't know. I don't have a DSi and I do have a Slot-2 expansion, so GBA emulation doesn't matter to me. What really interests me is the SNES emulation capabilities. If it can do Super Mario Kart, Star Fox, and SMRPG (although that's doubtful), I'd be really interested in it. Otherwise, the other features are nice but not necessary. I'm a R4 guy. Crude but effective is my way.

    I'll get one probably, depending on the price and emulator compatibility I guess. I'm not worried about the power consumption really. People have tested the iPlayer and said the battery life drainage is negligible at worst. This card has the same hardware, so I'm assuming it will be similar in power consumption.

    iPlayer is currently like $35 on dealextreme. It would be NICE if the price were lower for Supercard, and it may be. But honestly, considering what you're getting, I wouldn't really fault them for pricing it as such. Assuming the emulators work well, we're getting the equivalent of a slot-2 card (and we assume real time saving on GBA games) plus a Super NES console to boot. Well worth the extra price. And considering people once thought CycloDS was the top card to get @ $50, I wouldn't think $35 is so much to pay, since it has a lot more features than CycloDS.

    Seriously though, I REALLY want to see the card in action. Especially the SNES and GBA compatibility.

    Why isn't there a maybe option? That's what I'm going to pick.

    Same here - Where's the 'Maybe'

    I 'Maybe' buying it - but it really depends on the interface/firmware & also homebrew compatibility etc
    Is it gonna be a DSOne interface or a Iplayer interface, perhaps a DSision or Moonshell/Sakura clone ????

    I would truely love to be able to play GBA games on my DSi .....

    Probably. I have a job to perform when it comes to flashcards anyhow.
