    Hi all. I'm looking to upgrade from my m3 lite, and I'm debating buying an R4.

    Can an R4 run GBA and NES games?

    Thanks.

    NES - yes, using an emulator.
    GBA - no, not directly. You can use GBA ExpLoader in combination with your M3 Lite though; it'll run clean GBA roms from a nice menu.

    NES games yes but for the GBA you'll definately need an expansion Pack:)

    i suggest buying the DSTT for cheapness and good expectation for the future
    BUT the best IMHO at the moment which infact is like Excellent from the beginning but is greatly neglected is Supercard as u have read from the JPH-Gbatemp review
    Ur opinion is effected like mine since due to popularity i even chose the R4 but i knew cyclo was better (still i didn't consider getting the SC that much)
    Get the DSTT if u want it cheap but SC if u want the best... i mean comon Ingame cheat menu, RTS , more than 1 saves per game etc. Beautiful

    if your M3 lite works fine, you're not really going to see much of an upgrade with any card

    your best bet is a slot1 with SDHC support

    supercard DSone, cycloDS, acekard, etc

    r4 is a great card, but I'd pick something with SDHC support

    Yea, R4 is outdated now although it was a great cart.

    Get a cart that has SDHC support, it will be around the same price or lower the R4.
