First of all, I'd like to state that I don't have a DS yet at this point. For some weird reason, they're all out of stock here in Vancouver in the local Future Shops (owned by Best Buy), for which I managed to score a gift card. I've been reading up on games, homebrew, and flash carts. Yay. Everyone seems to be really excited about the expandable Slot 1 solutions out there:M3 Perfect Simply (R4DS) and Supercard DS One. What I'm curious about are the benefits of these cards over their Slot 2 variants. It seems to me that the DS doesn't care if you shove it in from the front or the back, it takes it and that's that. Is it just because the Slot 1 cards are new? From what I can see, the Slot 2 versions, though a little more expensive, can play GBA games, and are fairly mature in terms of compatibility. Can anyone clear this up? Thanks. Edit: I'm such a newb. Didn't notice the DS forum. I'll quietly bow out and drag my sorry ass question to the right forum Sorry about that!
