    I've asked around a bit in the IRC channel, but no definitive answers. Im looking to purchase the G6 Lite with a PassCard3, But i cant seem to find a decent site which ships to Australia. Price/Time and Reputation are very important in this.

    Also, Any Cons / Really good pros i need to know about the G6? Will it work with Australian DS Lites. Im planning on purchasing both of them around the same time.

    Thanks in advance,
    Aidan.

    G6 Lite definitely works with any NDS lite
    If you live in melbourne, you can come to this store, www.acegamestore.com
    I went there last time and they have plenty of passcard 3 and they also have G6 lite.

    cheers.

    I recommend waiting for the 8 gigabit version, apparently its not supposed to cost much more than the 4 gigabit

    Yeah I've bought supercards from bamboo for all of my friends now.. *curses being the only one with a paypal account*

    Pros about Bamboo:
    Cheapish products and reliable

    Cons:
    For the cost of packaging, it is a complete rip off. I really don't like paying $20 postage to have it come in an envelope with no wrapping.. but still, good site.

    Yea I was a bit miffed when I brought from them and it was in a padded bag and that was it. I figured when paying that amount of postage it would have been a box. I was also a bit miffed that they swapped my SanDisc Micro for a Kingston Micro card too, just because it was a change in description.

    Don't buy one from AU! I got mine from psxbox.net and they're by far the cheapest internationally! It only took 5 days to get my G6 to New Zealand from Hong Kong, and on $8 shipping! Really well packed and everything so....choose psxbox.net!

    Was that with the 3 night shipping? I think its called 'express'.

    EDIT: I just checked the prices. Its going to cost $60 in shipping fees alone for it. So that boosts the price in total to $220 AUD. Thats $50 more than my DSlite costs.

    So please, Can someone share some GOOD sites that ship to aus?

    ^^^^Read my post ^^^^

    You should NEVER buy from Divineo, their shipping prices are extortionate

    EDIT: Here are the prices etc.

    G6 Lite (Chinese Version): Approx $85 AUD
    Shipping to AU: Approx $8 AUD (I think...)

    They only sell the Chinese version, but you can REALLY easily change it to English. If you buy one I'll give you a tutorial if you'd like!
